"Transmission malfunction, service now"

There are so many posts...I'm not sure if this issue has been addressed yet:

My transmission, on two separate occasions, suddenly slipped out of gear and I could not shift at all. Fortunately I was traveling at low speeds on side streets both times where I was able to pull off to the side of the road, stop and put the car in Park. But once I did that I was not able to shift out of Park. I turned off the engine, started it again, and still could not shift out of Park. At this time I received the message on my screen "Transmission malfunction, service now". It took two more times of restarting the engine before I was able to shift into Drive and get home safely.

I ultimately had to have my car towed to the dealership where they are currently trying to diagnose the problem. Does anyone have any experience/feedback on this issue???
