03 745li transmission issues

I have an 03 745li. I dont know much about the suspension but i have heard they have a lot of problems. When i am driving and say i am coming down a hill and take my foot off the accelerator and try to slow down, the car suddenly changes gear, will i say from gear 3 to gear 1, like a jump in the transmission. It acts a little hesitant when i try to pick up speed again before finally acting normal. Some other times when i try to pick back up speed, it feels like someone hit me from the back. I have read on here that it could be the guibo but not sure. If anyone can shed some light on this, i will appreciate it.

Also when i start car in the morning and immediately try to go into reverse, it goes back to neutral and gives transmission error msg and i will wait maybe 50secs-1min and try again and it works fine. what could be causing this?

I love the car, just hate these transmission issues.
