The issue may be a small screw inside the shift lever head. It should be replaced, lubricated, and will not a problem ever.

Hopefully, your fix will be easy.

    This is weird but my car is doing the same thing recently... How would I be able to get the shift lever head. Would I have to take it to a garage or could I do it myself?

This could be a known software bug. Mine had the same: the software fix is a replacement for the other (more expensive) option of replacing the clutch for the same symptoms.
It worked like a charm, and my car was still under warranty when they did it.

Go to a certified smart center or call them for certified smart repairs, they should know that error and help you before somebody replaces parts that don't need replacement.

Hi Steve. Your foot has to be firmly (pressure )on the break to engage reverse gear. It won't go into reverse gear doing so.Hope this helps.

Automatic 3 speed transmission wont shift out of first gear


that is what they consider safe mode for those transmissions, they are a very smart electronic transmission it does that so you dont ruin the trans.
It has detected a problem and you must take it to a tech and have the codes pulled, could be as simple as a sensor or solenoid pack
