Post New Mercedes owner

Hello all, I am a new Mercedes owner. I recently purchased an 05 C230 Kompressor with 71k miles on the odometer. I was very impressed by the speed and handeling.
The other night while driving/accelerating on the freeway I let my foot off the gas just as it was upshifing and I felt a thud/bump and lost power. The engine was reving normally but it felt like I was in nuetral. I was able to pull over to the side of the road and slowed to about 20mph... the transmission re-engaged and behaved normally the rest of the way home.

I have read some threads here about probems with this trany and the speed sensor and valve body. Could it be the same valve body problem?? Or would a transmision service solve my problem? It has not happened since last Sunday.
