    Trim : Elite Auto

    Engine : 2.2 Direct Petrol

    My 2.2 Direct Auto also does that on very steep hills. I think the gearbox's auto-logic gets confused. It uses a hill sensor, which probably doesnt get reset.

    You just need to push the selector into manual and push it up (or down...) a gear, and it will behave itself again.

    Hope that helps.

    If you have the same box as me, on the left iiis another gate and a -/+ , that's your manual change, and yes, you can use it going along.
    Interesting problem, wonder if it's common to the 2.2 direct, as I've never had it.
