    Angry Keeps going back into reverse!!!!!

    Hi everyone.
    I have a recurring problem with my 2006 Vectra Turbo.
    It has been "fixed" once already by an approved Vx warranty service agent (not a Vx dealer though) but is still there.
    Quite often when reverse parking I can take the car out of reverse, put it into first & continue to go backwards as it has gone back into reverse gear.
    This has hapened dozens of time both with me & the wife & if it wasn't for the parking snesors beeping to tell us the car had gone back into reverse one of us would definately have hit something by now.
    On the worst occasion I must have tried about 10 times to get the car into 1st gear, including clutch out waggle the gear lever, clutch in again & guess what? Right back into reverse gear.
    Has anyone else had the same problem?
    If so did your dealer admit itwas a common fault?
    Thanks.

    Comes under the M40 box on ***, although the M32 box remedy does describe the broken interlock.
