Mine is a 98, 92000 miles and is currently fine (touch wood)

It is possible that it has been resolved in the past but couldnt say either way

Is there a specific gearbox problem or are they just unreliable.
yes there is a problem, put very simpily:

its something to do with the rivets that are bolted to the crown wheel with the gear box, rather than using nuts and bolts to hold it on

do a search on here and more will be reveailed

so far 47.1% of people who vated have had a gearbox problem.

thats nearly half, which IMO is incrediably shocking and really bad!!!
