Today while going on the motorway my children were switching their seats back and fourth. Result of which was that one of them got his feet tangled into the automatic gear and switched in into Reverse !
As i had my eyes on the road i hear a reverse warning sound (activated when reverse gear is activated) with R on the speed dial.
At that moment i kinda got confused as my car was doing nearly 130 Km and seeing the R on the speed dial was literally like having all the air out of my lungs. I quickly put it back into N and then D... and wola nothing happened...
After this incidence i realized that this is a big safety feature in modern cars which protect the car mechanics when they detect that a wrong action on part of the driver is ignored otherwise my gear box would have simply dropped on the road !
well hats off to the japs for designing such a feature... not sure if Civic has it... but advice not to try it
