How's the Dualogic system's reliability?

Just bought my wife a Fiat Grande Punto 57 plate, first reg Dec 2007 and it's an auto which you can also use as a manual (like a mini tiptronic).

Its done 29,00 miles. Wife loves it, nice to drive etc.

Is there anything we should be looking out for in terms of any particular faults with this mode? Is auto box ok?

FIAT's Dualogic generally better developed than most other manufacturers semi-autos, including Toyota's and Honda's.

FIAT/Alfa were the first with this type of system.
