My car only drives forward not backwards what should I do
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Cinco. Thanks for contacting us today. In most cases, when you have forward gears working but no reverse in an automatic transmission, it’s an indication of a failed reverse gear. This will require an inspection from a professional transmission specialist to verify and to determine the correct repair solution.
