2005 SAAB 9-5 Transmission malfunction

Hi, I have Saab 95 model 2005, vector 2.0t gasoline engine. I experience a slam in the gear when I change into Reverse, and when I put 'D' it slams a bit and you notice delay in engaging. And looks like it goes in 3rd gear. So I have to put in 'L' to get first gear then shift between gears. It would also slam when change from 2 gear to 1 gear at breaking. So looks like have an issue with the fault gear 1 this message appears at tech 2 instrument. The dealer change the valve A1 but still same problem then he said that it needs Gear box Valve body changed. Found it quiet strange that at such a low mileage 100289 mil I get this problem. Anyone experienced this before? Do I really need to change the whole Valve body what other things can I do to eliminate problem. Thanks and Best regards
