ZX2 slipping out of gear

Hey guys, I was hoping someone might be able to shed a little light on a problem I have. My girlfriend has a 01 ZX2, and it slips out of gear. The Ford shop around here said it needs a new tranny...but I don't think thats the case. Some days it drives and shifts fine, but other times it will try to shift, but fall into neutral. Also, when it is acting up, if you leave it in drive, it won't take off...it just stays in neutral. But you can put it in first and shift through the gears just fine, which leads me to think the tranny is alright. Has anyone ever heard of this or have any insight on what it may be? Thanks in advance for the help.
