Sounds like the gearshift interlock is not working. I assume you know you have to hold your foot on the brake with the ignition switched on. Check all the fuses. If they're ok you may need to take it to an auto electrician unless you can find the fault in the interlock system yourself. It may be that the switch may be faulty or out of adjustment. It is located down on the brake pedal.
Your vehicle has a brake shift interlock which simply means that it will not move out of park unless the brake is pressed in. A common cause for this to cause your interlock to cause this problem is if your brake llights are out but there could be a number of reasons for this. It's most likely electrical and you may need to have it looked at but check your fuses before you take it somewhere. it may be that simple. Below are instructions on how to override this in order to be able to shift gears and be able to drive it as well. I hope this helps and good luck.
good morning and welcome to fixya
very nice car. dumb question for you, is the car still under any warranty that covers the drivetrain? it sounds like to me that the reverse shift solenoid has either one gone bad or two the wire harness going to it has an issue. are there any check engine lights on, if so have those been recovered and diagnosed yet? does the vehicle do fine in all other gears, no slipping or anything. does the auto stick work ok? let me know so i can try to help you out more. thank you
