Are the gearbox issues that the old Honda Jazz models had still a problem with the newer models?

I'm thinking about buying a three year old old Honda Jazz and would like to know if the gearbox issues that the older models had is still a problem? Also which model would you recommend as value for money?

The gearbox bearing issue was with the manuals and did reappear in early Mk II Jazz, but I have not heard of it since. Mk II CVT-7 automatics okay.
