I've got the EXACT same problem with my '06 S5 - when accelerating to get on the highway or passing the car downshifts, then shifts to O/D for a split second only to jerk really hard and slip back to third. It remains here until I either stop the car and turn off the engine for a few minutes or reset the computer by unplugging the neg. terminal. I got the 0700 and 0748 codes myself 2 months ago but I cleared them and they've yet to come back. BUT the problem still occurs - stuck in third gear. And nothign i do changes it - when this happens I can be at a stop light and shift into L, 2nd, D but the car remains in 3rd. It will respond to park, Neutral and Rev but is accompanied by a hard 'thud' when shifting into these gears during this problem.
I'd gladly take the car in for the warranty since it's only at 66k miles but i'm the second owner - according to Kia, yes the cars are covered for 100k miles BUT if you are the second owner of the vehicle that drops to only 12k miles! WTF?
