Car reverses for about a foot, then stops abruptly

Asked by Jun 22, 2017 at 09:38 AM about the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went to my car today, and started it. I put the car in reverse. The car backed
up for about a foot or so, then came to an abrupt stop. I could not get the car
to move any further backwards. I was able to put in drive and it went forward
back into parking stall.
