Re: Shifter Confusion killed Anton Yelchin!!!

Like it just fine in both my 14 Summit and 15 SRT...Like how it's a slap shifter...yes it does require some diligence for confirming gear but I have had no issues in 42k miles and 2.5 yrs using it.

Re: Shifter Confusion killed Anton Yelchin!!!

The reports state that his driveway is very steep. Even with a normal shifter, you should hit the park brake before jumping out on a steep hill. Obviously he didn't deserve to die, but that's a dumb mistake.

That doesn't mean it's designed well!! How many millions of other vehicles don't have this problem? Bottom line is that the shifter has zero tactical feel and most people aren't accustomed to looking at the shifter to confirm the gear it should be in. Poor design, period.
