Towing with an auto

I currently tow with a V70 manual and wish to change to an auto but I read on Volvo's Forum that when hold is engaged on descents on their Geartronic box there are experiences where the box can default to neutral and leave you free-wheeling to the bottom! Not a happy thought for someone who spends half the year touring Europe, so I'm thinking C220. Has anyone come across any problems with the auto??

There are no problems towing with any MB auto, they all have gearbox oil coolers as well, and welcome to the forum
