Fatigue Related Shifter Concern.

Tue Mar 30, 2021 7:07 pm

I admit I was tired. MAYBE I was just confused, could have had the gear in R thinking it was D, but I looked down to check...

I had just finished filling up the gas at a gas station and I was set to drive off (forward). Selected D, released the brake, not sure if I stepped on the gas but I felt like the car was lurching backwards! I slammed the brake, look down at the D button and it is properly highlighted. Proceeded to notice this issue once or twice more! (It didn't help that someone was at the pump behind me).

I was very scared to say the least. (Maybe just fatigue)?

It's been maybe a week or two since the incident but thought I'd see if anyone might have had the same?

Thanks in advance.
