My 2001 PT Cruiser would not go in reverse. I took it to a shop and he said it was the plastic piece at the end of the cable that attaches to the shift. He wanted to charge me $180. for the new cable and 3 hours labor - total over $450. My husband went on line and ordered the plastic piece only and had it sent to our house. It cost $20.00. Then he took it to another mechanic he knew and he charged him $70. labor to install it. Total $90.00 (savings - $360.00+) Send your brother/husband/mechanic savvy sister etc.
Mine is having the same problem. All the forward gears work fine, but I can't shift into reverse. If I play around with \it a bit, it will eventually work (so far)
