Hello there,

Your car is a Vauxhall Zafira?

Is the auto holding onto 2nd too long, or slipping when doing a 2-3 shift?

Ok, so now we need to get a scan of the engine and transmission for codes set.

Do you have a Vauxhall dealer nearby?

Small shops don't have the resources for diagnosis.

Ok, that will be your best option.

The transmission can do abnormal shifting for many reasons, including lower than expected torque from the engine.

110000 is above average mileage for this age, still should have some good life in it.

So code diagnosis is the next step.

Hope this helps.
