I've a 3-month old 159 2.2l Selespeed, living in Singapore.
During first 2 months, I had maybe 2 or 3 occasions where I was stopped dead, and couldn't engage reverse gear, had to bring the stick to neutral, and then shifted again and then it worked. Same with shifting to 1st.
Brought it to the agent, and SO basically said it's normal, must shift with deliberate movement
Didn't think much of it, if it happens once in a month or so, was prepared to put to electronic gremlins or something
But last 3 weeks or so, it got more frequent, like today it happened 3 times in one day. Sometimes, just shift back to N, and then to R, doesn't engage, shift again this time to N, 1, then back to N and the R (when I wanted to reverse). I'm begining to feel irritated. And it may get dangerous if I'm in a hurry to change direction (R & 1st to get away fast for example.)
Anybody has experienced this in UK? Should I go to the agent and insist they reflash the SS software or something?
Many thanks in advance!
