Is the semi-automatic Colt reliable?

Hi, I am planing to buy a 2009 Mistubishi Colt 1.3 semi automatic, which is imported from the UK and its mileage is 54,000km. One of my friends has told me that the semi automatic model has issues so I shouldn't buy the semi automatic. It will be helpful if you can give some feedback about this model.

Thanks a lot in advance
