    Default Reverse lockout/ getting into reverse

    im having problems getting into reverse. i have to hold up the reverse lockout trigger go into 5th then go down in order to get it into reverse. i drove johns spec today so he can hear his exhaust and i went into reverse in his car with no problem pull up the trigger and it goes right into reverse. did anybody ever have this problem? im probably going to take it to smithtown nissan bc i have a 100,000 mi warranty but i figured id ask first...

    Loosen the knob slightly, and if you still continue to have this problem try putting it inot 1st the going for reverse, works every time on the non reverse lockout cars at least.

    it was like that when i bought the car in april but i didnt feel like taking it back to the dealer but now its just being such a pain im tired of it. i tried to loosin up my shift knob and it works fine that way but then every time i shift it twists because its so loose and its not supposed to be that way. and its annoying to tighten it after eevery time i go back in gear.
