I think this is similar to Formula 1 car = gearchange where you manually select a gear but the clutch is operated = electromagnetically so there is no clutch pedal. I am told some Alphas = have these. I can imagine these are very expensive to repair or replace. = Why did Saab discontinue the use of this type of semi-automatic gearbox. = Anybody have any information please? Is this going to be a problem on = this age of vehicle?
