Re: Q-system questions????
Its geared quite high and is very relaxed on the highway, I do about 100kms a day in mine and it sits at about 120/130 kmh very well - cant remember the exact revs but not too high, I think about 3500 to 4000rpm.
Reliability wise they are very much the same as manual V6 and the auto box is reliable. If you plan to test one, the gear changes should be smooth and quick, try it in manual mode too.
I would try it hard in 2nd gear up to about 6000rpm then quickly lift off and then back on the power - any problem in the box will show up here. Also sometimes there is a bit of hesitation in the box at about 3000rpm like its about to change up a gear - they all seem to do it to a greater or lesser extent.
