    New y62 Park to Reverse - resistance / difficulty moving to Reverse. Thud.

    hey finally picked up the y62. It's huge and very comfortable.
    It's about 500kms old

    My wife mentioned that the drive selector is difficult to go from P to R and thuds into Reverse. I wouldn't expect this from a new car.
    It also shifts roughly from time to time, but I haven't worked out the exact sequence that occurs in.

    Should I be concerned? Has anyone else noticed this?

    cheers,
    Rich

    If they parked on a bit of a slope some people have mentioned the hard to shit or making a clunk going from park to reverse,if so try putting the handbrake on then going into park,like you say it's a big car and alot of weight on the transmission especially if on a hill

    As Avo said, put the park brake on, let the car rest on the park brake , then select park, also don't forget its designed to be used with a leg/foot. so don't be afraid to give it a fair old shove toward the floor.

    Give your gear box some more time . it should settle in and may still be learning the way you drive, mine was the same but all good after a few thousand ks.
