QuestionReverse gears(MT) in cars Pin

Does it work like a piece of cake in your car?

Reverse gear was a pain in my last car. (Manual transmission)
Just in few days of use, I noticed the reverse gear shift doesn't engage in one attempt.
I'd have to disengage, move the car by few inches and then try again then, it works.

When I raised this issue with the dealer, he said, shifting reverse gears need some "knack" Hmmm | :| and this is how it is!

After years of usage, at one point, it became so worse. Then I called to the service department and explained the problem. Well, they came to the point straight. It would need some minor replacement and it might cost $400. What the heck, I've been complaining this right from day one on a brand new car. & I had a different response.

I just totally dislike this pattern
Something looks like a problem for you from day one & the other party never recognizes it & when the problem gets severe, they suggest a solution straight without looking at the history of this complaints & responses. D'Oh! | :doh:

Okay, I took it easy, I did not go for the $400 replacement, I tweaked up my "knack" for reverse-gear shifts and ensured I live with it Long enough till I sold it back to the same manufacturer.
Yup they do exchange customers old cars for new ones.

Now, I have a brand new car. Got it after exchanging my old one. It's different model but from the same manufacturer. It's just few weeks old. And now I'm seeing the same problem again. OMG | :OMG: The reverse gear doesn't engage at first attempt. It takes me to rock the back and forth and try again. Cry | :(( Cry | :(( .

Does reverse gears in this universe work this way? Or I'm just alone here with my curse of the reverse gears?


I think I'll have to learn a new "knack" for this car now. WTH!! WTF | :WTF:
