My 2010 VW Passat occasionally will not go into reverse. I have to turn car off restart and then put into reverse and it is fine.

Sounds like your PRNDL switch is going bad - PRNDL is short for Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Low - probably best to have a professional replace that one

Is your car an automatic or manual transmission? If it is a manual, I would suspect the hydraulic clutch cylinder. Trouble with any other gear?
