Default Q5 TDI Transmission Problems

My 2014 Q5 TDI, with 53,000-miles, has been demonstrating an intermittent problem of the transmission slipping out of gear when stopped (auto start/stop engaged) and just recently while driving. To re-engage, I have to throw the transmission lever between neutral, drive and sport. This has been very intermittent but is extremely concerning. I have just informed the NHTSA of this condition.

Has anyone experienced a similar "failure"? Taking it to the dealer will probably not work as the event will not occur under their watch. Thanks in advance.

Sorry to hear about the transmission problem. Even if it is intermittent, it may have thrown an error code that can be detected when it is scanned.
