My 2019 Corinium Duo has had its share of issues over the last few years but now we have moved on to while driving along it jumps out of first gear, all other gears drive OK as have just driven back from Portugal in this state.   Should I get it looked at or just ignore?

Peugeot boxer based van.  Its only done 31000 miles,  also, out of warranty dealer doesn't want to help me.....

How you can consider ignoring such an issue on what must still be a vehicle worth north of £40k is beyond my understanding.
It is faulty and has the potential for whatever is worn or broken to part company with whatever it is fastened to and drop into the rest of the gears that may be propelling you at some speed. I would think worst case scenario of one of two things to happen, either it destroys everything else and makes it an expensive replacement or it locks up the drive line completely and causes an accident which could cost a lot more than money.
If it were mine, I would be getting it fixed asap.

It MAY be a cable gear change, cables from lever to gearbox. It may be a badly adjusted cable, an easy fix for the right garage....
Just a thought, really would be surprised if it is internal at that age.....

If I remember correct it’s more of a linkage and may well be no more than a selector rod bush that’s worn or the linkage needs adjustment.

well this sounds quite reassuring - I think I'll try find a garage that would look at this.... problem is do I take it to a grearbox centre or just a general van place?

I assume a gearbox centre would check the cables and linkages first before ripping the gearbox out for a rebuild.

Trouble is I don't know how to trust anything anyone (motorhome repair people) tells me with motorhome repairs as everything just seems so hopeless.....

I would go to a Peugeot commercial garage if it was mine. Pick a garage with the capacity to accommodate your van on a hoist.

I would get an independent one to look at it who has good reviews and recommendations.
Main dealers will always look for replacement of parts rather than refurbishing and repairing.

I'm going to visit a gearbox centre - found one near me that discusses linkages as one reason for gears to jump out - so assuming that's a good place for them to start as easier than taking box out.... 

Going to make a point of it when I take it in, thanks for the heads up here - but as always I'm over a barrel - perhaps I need to learn to trust a little more and be less cynical about the motor trade in general.
