Gear lever moves but wont shift out of reverse

Asked by Jul 28, 2015 at 07:58 PM about the 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had the vehicle in reverse and it moved and operated fine. Once I moved the lever to change gears the lever moved but the vehicle stayed in reverse. Are there any ideas on what the issue may be and possible options to fix it? Probably obvious to say but it is an automatic transmission.
