problem details
transmission keep switching from automatic to manual. Most of the time when reaching a stop sign and below 10 miles per hour. Otherwise transmission runs very well

My car does the same too. But the only difference is it shifts back to manual after i turn off the engine. I have to push the "A" switch to make it automatic whenever i want to drive the car from a cold start.
