I have an '89 100E with a 3-speed tranny. Constantly missing 
the fourth gear since the engine revs a bit high (about 3000 
rpm at 60 mph), but I can live with that. The car has 102K 
miles and as far as I know have never had any problems with 
the transmission (except that "shift-lock" does not work).

Seems as reliable as any other auto.
