I've been told its bad when you're backing up to shift into drive from reverse while the car is still rolling backwards. Is this bad for the car? Should I come to a complete stop before shifting? (automatic transmission)
Shifting into drive while the car is still moving in reverse damages
the internal moving parts. Come to a complete stop, or you could find
yourself staring at a $1,000 repair bill. If you do enough damage, you
might need a new transmission, which could run $3,000 or more.
