My car won't go into reverse.
I will assume the transmission does transfer power in the other drive gears. The electronically controlled transmission may have a failed solenoid that directs fluid pressure to the reverse gear assembly. In most cases, the transmission is removed and overhauled to correct the problem and prevent others. Have an experienced technician inspect the transmission internals for damage and diagnose the cause of your shifting issue. They will be able to let you know what repairs are needed to allow your car to move in reverse again.
