Angry own a 2003 C240 automatic

I'm hoping some folks can help me out with this car. I bought it used a year ago, in March or so of 2008 the trouble started. The car will intermittently get stuck in whatever gear it is at the time. We most often could stop the car, turn it off and it would be fine on restarting it. It runs beautifully between episodes!
We've taken it to the dealer four times and spent over $2000 trying to find and fix the problem. They have reset the computer three times and after the last time when it would not reset and the check engine light came on, we had to have it towed. At that point they replaced the whole computer module. After three days, it again would not shift.
We are, needless to say at our wits end. Can anyone help!? E.

Welcome to the board.

Wander down to the W203 sub forum and ask your questions regarding your tranny issue. I am sure you are not alone with the problem. There is a very good group of knowledgeable folk on that forum.
