PROBLEM TIPTRONIC TRANS

I have a 1997 Porsche C2 Targa, with a tiptronic trans. I purchased it in 2014. The records do not show any trans service from the previous owner. The car has been driven daily with no problems. Recently, the trans started to shift unevenly. The MPG indicator would show 12mpg then immediatly decend to 9.5mpg. When stopping, the trans will shift from second to first with a jolt. I took it to my independant porsche specialist who statred I need a trans rebuild. ($$$). He does not want to try a trans service and does not think it is a computer problem. I'm just looking for a second opinion before I commit to a large expense. I do not race the vehicle, mostly drive in auto from 3rd gear around town. any thoughts on the matter will be helpful

Thank you,
