The gear stick actually tipped to the front and didn't lock, but I didn't really check if the gear changed to R
before stopping. I would expect it to tip slightly to N
eutral, but it went all the way to R
So If, for example, I was travelling at 80km/h and tip the gear stick forward, would it go to N
then LOCK itself from tipping all the way to the front ? Or would it go forward all the way but display N
as the current gear ?
