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.
