The man­ual and au­to­matic trans­mis­sions are as tough as the en­gines, al­though the auto should have an oil and fil­ter change at each ma­jor ser­vice – less than £100 at a spe­cial­ist. Early au­tos used a fluid fly­wheel rather than a torque con­ver­tor, so changes can be slightly lumpy, but that’s nor­mal; if it’s no­tably rough be­tween ra­tios, how­ever, then fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion will be re­quired. Oth­er­wise, just check for un­to­ward noises from the back axle or signs of per­ished cou­plings and joints.
