Question about 2002 Dodge Neon
There is a number of possible reasons for the car jerking when you put in reverse. Things are also different depending if you have auto or manual tranny.
As first thing check the tranny fluid and eventually replace the fluid. This will rule out a common reason for troubles of this kind (or eventually fix the problem).
If that does not help, go to a local garage and have the motor mounts checked. This is the most typical reason for this problem, at least on manual transmission.
On Auto trans, after checking mounts, also have the torque converter clutch tested. A bad shift solenoid in the solenoid pack (in the valve body) may cause the reverse shifting roughly.
Also ensure that the problem is not linked to high idle.

Hi i have an automatic audi a5. Sometimes when i use the reverse it kicks. The overall drive is fine. What is the problem?

First, check your transmission fluid level. Next, check your front and rear motor mount bushings, the rubber around it has gone bad. If your motor and transmission mounts are ok then look for a internal transmission problem or badly worn drive shaft joints
