    I just got a 2nd hand 306 Auto and I notice that I can shift the gear lever
    from Drive to 3 easily without any latching/clicking effect i.e. not like
    when shifting from N-Drive we can feel a click/latch. I wonder is this
    normal ? Therefore sometimes when I shift from N-D, it goes into 3 if I
    shift from N to D too fast.

    Hope any 306 owners can answer this.

    Yes that is normal. It is a useful feature to enable the driver to use
    engine braking by forcing a downshift. There will be a click-stop from
    3 to 2 to prevent you jumping too many gears at once, but with skill
    you can force that downchange too like you do when using a manual box.
    All you are doing in that case is limiting the auto gearbox to its
    lower three gears. You can pull it back into D at any time to enable
    it to use all the gears.
