I have the above referenced car with about 65k miles on it. Today I took it for a drive, switched it to tip-tronic manual and found that the car would not shift past 3rd gear. When I switched to automotic, the transmission stayed on tip-tronic (the display indicated I was on 3rd gear). I had to fully stop the car, place it on park and only then did the transmission switch to automatic.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Leave the tiptronic off. You are the 1% of owners who actually use it and yours appeared to have failed after 9yrs. Be happy the automatic shifts.
