Q: Low rpms can't reverse

asked by on

My Versa Note had been running great until it had 60,000 miles on it. I had it regularly serviced, too. All of a sudden my car started to act up while driving on the freeway. I drove it at a constant speed but the revs were going insane! I pulled over and the revs didn't move at all. They didn't go over 1000 rpms in drive even after pushing all the way down on the gas. It was almost impossible to park in reverse. I had it towed to the nearest dealership. Do you have any ideas about what could be wrong?
