Hi all, looking at a 2.0 titanium grand cmax, powershift. Are they ok to drive ? Can you use the powershift all the time? Thanks for any input..

In my experience over 6 years and 44000 miles they drive very well. Smooth changes etc. Not sure what you mean by using powershift all the time? But you can drive in manual mode. I am only averaging 40 mpg.

It's a great gearbox BUT it has two wet clutches one for even gears and one for odd gears, the downside is you must change the oil and filter at 30,000 or risk the box failing the cost of the filter and oil (I think 6 litres) around £130.00 + labour.
Watch this video for more information.

I think I may be a bit confused, as not driving an automatic before, just to clarify, when in drive you can then select the powershift? Is that correct?
Thanks for the reply.

You just select Drive and drive off and it changes gear automatically. It also has a sport mode where you change manually by just moving the gear lever back or forth.

I believe the recommended oil change interval on the wet clutch version is every 30,000 miles or 3 years whichever comes first. Mine was last done a year ago and it cost £300.
