    Yes, we do! A key ring with 2 keys, one biggish, fell down the back and then dropped to a great depth by the sound! Toyota Canada and our local dealer where car was bought were not interested; will take about 40 minutes to retrieve we were told. Pretty expensive keys?!

This is a known failure item. Take it to a dealer & have them replace it under warranty. I personally have changed 20 or so. The replacement boxes seem to have been upgraded, and do not display this issue any longer.

My 2009 manual subaru forrester will not shift in reverse

Assuming you can press the clutch and EASILY select fwd gears, then I'd suspect either
* the linkage from the gear stick to the transmission is being jammed / obstructed by something under the car.
* something in the center console is jamming the stick getting in to reverse.

If you can't easily select fwd gears, check the clutch slave and master cylinders.
