I need a small reliable automatic with a torque converter gearbox, what are my options?

My wife's Honda Jazz 2012 model needs a new or secondhand gearbox, so I am looking to see what automatic we can buy for around £6500 that will be reliable and a torque convertor auto gearbox

What would you recommend should we bite the bullet and replace the Honda?

If you are looking to replace your Jazz with a similarly-sized car, the issue you will find is that most cars of this size use either a dual-clutch gearbox or a CVT. There are a few exceptions however, such as the 2014-2019 Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 petrol automatic and the 2015-2019 Mazda 2 automatic, which both use a torque converter automatic.

Much improved over previous Corsa, better quality interior with a more upmarket feel, impressive for around town.
