Customer Question

I have a c class 2000 with a tiptronic gear box. this is fine on long runs but on runs in traffic jumps out gears and will not drive. It seems that when it warms up the problem occurs. I always drive in automatic mode. A mercedes specialist has had the car on and off since september 2012 and has 'fixed' it only for it to reoccur after a few journeys.
