    fella, i would say its probably an electric fault if you can get the, like the ecu not telling the car to change gear

    i would advise taking it to a garage, prehaps on this occasion, Vauxhall maybe your best bet

    That's not exactly a very good diagnosis "gearbox knackerd" without running a diagnostic and if the box changes fine through 1 2 and 3 , If I was you take the surround off from the base of the gear shift ,there are a few main wiring plugs there for the gearbox electrics ie, sports button, snow ,and traction control undo the plugs and put them back together making sure they are a snug fit , do all this with the Ignition OFF because you don't want to create any fault codes,
    If you have no luck after doing that then you need to get a diagnostic either a well known /recommended Autobox specialist OR Vauxhall main dealer via tech 2

    I'd agree, your best bet is an automatic transmission specialist.

    In your first post you mentioned that you've just bought the car? If so, can you take it back? Sounds like you were sold a car that's not fit for purposed - unless they told you that it had gearbox problems.
