2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV: Shifter Could Be Better
June 26, 2012
Maneuvering our long-term Mitsubishi i MiEV in parking lots is easy-peasy, but I do wish the shifter moved more fluidly between its gates. Whenever I try to go from E or D to Reverse, it invariably hangs up in Neutral, and then it takes another firm push to get it into R.
Certainly not the first time I've encountered this scenario in a car, but in an urban runabout with a single-speed transmission, I'd expect the transitions between going forward and backing up to require a bit less thought and effort.
