While this is not a big deal, does it seem odd to anyone that the to put the car in Drive you pull the lever backwards and to put the car in Reverse you push the lever forwards? Doesn't that seem opposite of what it should be?:rolleyes:

It's probably to prevent accidental selection of Reverse mode. Even though it does seem to switch into N when you're going fast enough. It takes more effort to push it into R than to pull into D. I think the way the knob is designed, it makes me just wanna pull it like a parachute pull.
