The transmission range sensor aka neutral safety switch is located underneath the air filter on top of the transaxle and very easy to access. Replace this part (around $50) and it will solve your problem.
What happens is this, when your tranny warms up, it disperses heat to the sensor switch and if its faulty or worn out, will send faulty relays to the transmissiom computer module (TCM) and makes the transmission shift irratically (OD to 3rd and back while driving at freeway speeds). You tranny is not overheating like most people believe, its the switch. Mechanics are telling alot of people that their tranny needs replaced. Watch Out For These People!! They only want your money!!

Now i dont know a lot about automatics especially modern ones with all this fancy electronics thats used nowdays but i think its a fault with the temperature sensor for the gearbox.But where its located and what it looks like i have no idea it could even be mounted inside the gearbox .Sorry not a very good answer from a mechanic but?? very few of our europeon cars come with auto transmission .Evan when i do know whats wrong i cannot buy the parts for the gearbox as only re-con boxes supplied by the dealer so best advice is to try a specialist in auto box repairs only .PS some of my best students when i used to teach mechanics many moons ago were the girls so no excuses like iam only a girl please

This TSB supersedes TSB 03-40-013 to add repair information (Steps 2~3).
An improperly adjusted or improperly operating range switch may result in the following conditions:
• Diagnostic trouble codes:
• P0705 - Range switch signal problem
• P0707 - Range switch - open circuit
• P0708 - Range switch - short circuit or multiple inputs
• Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) illuminated
• Impossible engine start in "P" or "N"
This TSB provides information concerning the proper adjustment and diagnosis of the transaxle range switch.
1. Attach a GDS and check for DTC in both the "Engine" and "Automatic Transaxle" menus. Go to Step 2 for 2000~02 Accent or Step 3 for 2006~ Sonata. For other vehicles, go to Step 4.
2. For 2000~2002 Accent: Check according to TSB 03-40-001. Go to Step 4.
3. For 2006~ Sonata, follow steps a,b,c below, then go to Step 4.
a. Check the rear combination lamp ground bolts for tightness and good electrical contact (refer to applicable ETM, "Tail, Parking & License Lamps" section). Go to Step b.Page 2 of 6
b. For 2006~ Sonata: Remove the center console cover and check for contamination on the M40 connector to the sports mode switch. If so, clean and repair the connector as necessary. Go to step c below.
c. For 2006~07 Sonata: Remove the front pillar cover and verify the harness is properly routed near the clip. Repair the harness as necessary. Go to Step 4.
4. Attach a GDS and select vehicle, "A/T" menu, "Current Data" and "Shift Lever Switch".
5. Move the shift lever and confirm the GDS reads the gear shift position as shown below. If so, the harness currently does not have an open or short circuit between. the PCM/TCM and range switch.
Hope this helps.
