Default slow gear change in Auto ?

Hi I have just bought a 08 Automatic , I want to know it it is normal for it to be a bit slow to change gear . I used to drive a fiat 1.2 so I'm not used to the smaller engine yet. So don't know if its normal to feel the car change gear would be greatful for any help

No experience with Peugeot Autoboxes but I did once have a Citroen C4 Auto as a demonstrator for a week. Couldn't wait to give it back. The gear change was frightening because it took so long. I'd be catching up with a car in front on the motorway, indicate and pull out, foot down on the accelerator and the damn thing would drop a cog, slow down for a second or two then eventually start to accelerate to eventually pass. Decided there and then that a modern auto is not the car for me.

Autos on small engines dont tend to work well but on bigger engines they are brilliant

Autos need plenty torque which small engines tend not to produce so the boxes feel slow you can get used to it though

I think the gearbox fitted to your car in not a true auto but a automated manual therefore it will not hold on a hill and they can be slow to change gear

There have been a few software updates to try and address the gear change speed/quality so maybe worth getting a dealer to check if it has latest version (only dealers have access to the server for software updates)
