Yeah...welcome to the 'no reverse' club.

You have two options.

1. Replace the transmission, or have the one in there rebuilt. Cost? $1,500-$2,500, depending on who you see.

2. Get in touch with your inner topographical analyst. I've not had reverse for two years, and it's rare I get myself into a situation when anything more than a couple of pushes with my left foot outside the driver's door, doesn't do it.

You get exceptionally good at seeing the slightest inclines, and whether they benefit you or not.

I don't have plans to fix mine until forward is a problem....
