2013 Fiat Panda gear issues

Hi. New to the forum but have signed up to seek advice.
I have a Fiat Panda 2013 Lounge with the turbo engine in an automatic that is having gear changing issues.
I am finding the gears are not changing from 2nd to 3rd and just drops back to neutral bringing the car to a rolling stop.
When this happens I have to turn the car off to get it back to first gear.
I had the car in the dealer to look at it and they said it was the software and so they reset it and said it would be fine.
I thought i'd take it out again today to test it out and within a minute of driving it happened again.
Has anyone had the same issues and if so what should be done?
I'm now scared to drive my car.

Re: 2013 Fiat Panda gear issues

As the dealer says they have fixed it I would go back and insist that they do so without making significant / any additional charges. Its what they should be able to do. I have generally found them to be helpful and the car is quite new so its in their / Fiats interest to at least clearly identify the problem quickly and economically. Good luck.
