Could just be a solenoid, or stuck valve, may be worth taking to a reputable automatic transmission specialist before you write the auto off.

May also be worth checking analogue values of the gearbox with inpa/dis, etc, to see what is and isn't showing values.

Reverse clutch drum has broken/sheared off. Part costs probaly $500 but the labour will be easily over $1500.

Fair call. I didn't realise this was a common issue with these cars. I've never seen this happen on other makes, normally a reverse issue would be in the valve body/ solenoids. That's really bad

Was just thinking that he does actually get reverse how ever when under load thats when he's going nowhere,plus the cars not in limp mode,usually if something goes with the mechatronics you'll go straight into limp mode.
Selein best bet is to do what Davew said,get codes read first,coud be an issue that may be an easier fix,keep us updated

Seems reverse came back yesterday and was going back under load, sign that it might be the solenoid?
