2009 Honda Fit Sport: Reverse Issue Part II?

January 04, 2010

This seems to be a new development in our 2009 Honda Fit Sport but sometimes when shifting into Reverse, the gearshift doesn't snick into place all the way so no go. I've taken to putting it in Neutral and letting the car roll a bit until I can push the gear all the way into place. Another editor suggested putting the car in 1st gear then in Reverse.

I know this has happened in other cars but just figured it's worth mentioning considering our previous Fit had an issue with Reverse.
