My car has 25000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi. The transmission in your car is failing and eventually it will stop working completely. The reverse gears have completely failed that is reason it will not go in reverse. The shaking and going slow is caused by the valve body or shift solenoids being clogged or just not working at all. Another reason why this could be happening is the transmission module going bad and causing the transmission not to shift or not go into gear properly. I suggest taking your car to your transmission shop and having them diagnose your transmission issues.
