Because the automatic transmission is not very common in a Westfalia and to some it may be somewhat of a novelty, it may not be commonly known that this transmission is very well built and extremely reliable, possibly even more so than the common standard shift tranny. For VW to even use the automatic transmission in the transporter, it would have had to far exceed accepted standards of the day. Hope this bit of information helps anyone considering owning an automatic. Most Old school VW mechanics will agree with this conservative alalysis.
