Push the lever up, not down. Not intuitive, but that's the way it works.

I've had the car go into park from reverse if I didn't go back forcefully enough. No idea why it does that. I am assuming operator error at this point while I get used to the controls.

If you are light on your sit (ie looking back and lift your behind), the car think that it is a run away car. It will put back to park.

Push the lever all the way up, there are two clicks - first click is for neutral, second click is for reverse. The same is true when you go from reverse to drive, just push down all the way. If you don't go all the way, you will get neutral.

@hungry yes I do go in reverse "old school" that is to say: I turn completely around, look out the back window and then go, turned around the whole time. (I am trying to train myself to use the camera. It is much better than what I can see turned around.) Now what you wrote makes perfect sense. Thanks! :)

In my car (software v4.5), there is a slight time delay between the time the brake pedal is pressed, and the time the the car will change from Park.

This seems to be while the graphic speedometer is flipping over.
