Q: 2003 Honda Civic not moving in reverse

asked by on

My car is not moving in reverse when I shift into reverse.

Unfortunately there could be several reasons as to why your Honda Civic is unable to engage reverse gear when you shift the transmission into reverse. Knowing if your Civic is equipped with a manual or automatic transmission can greatly assist in determining what the root cause may be. Therefore I highly recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic to come by and have a look at your Honda. Once there they will be able to determine exactly why your Civic is not engaging reverse when you shift it and they will also be able to assist with the repairs necessary to get your Honda driving in both forward and reverse so you don’t have to push your car out of its parking spot.
