My wife has to change to an automatic but we dont know whether the basic automatic or the dual manual and auto is the best. Sometimes our daughter who drives manual would use my wife's car . I feel, rightly or wrongly , that the less complicated the transmission is the less can go wrong. We would love you expert opinion. Thank you.

The dual manual you refer to is I am guessing a DSG or double-clutch gearbox and we are certainly fans of them here at CompleteCar.ie. They have been around for quite some time now and therefore most of the major problems appear to have been ironed out. They offer a smoother auto change than a standard automatic transmission, plus they will behave like a manual (without the clutch obviously) if you want them to.
