Shifting into reverse at that speed will do nothing. Too many safeties built in. It'* supposed to kill the ignition like that.

Everything is fine.

Even on my vacuum operated 440T4, it just killed the engine like it was supposed to. In fact, I've accidentally knocked our Montana into reverse. Nothing'* wrong. This isn't a 125-c..

On the 4T60E <-------note the "E" or the 4T65E, it can't engage. It'* protected electronically by watching the VSS.

It will be on an electronic tranny [one that has an electronic shifter, not a manual one. Not sure if that includes the '60-E, but I know it includes the 440t4]. It'll lock up real nice.. and screw up some major ****. Don't do it, period.

More seriously, I don't how old your nephew is but why wasn't he belted in the back seat?
My nephew is a big kid at the age of 10 which is well within the ride in the front seat range. 5'8" 155 pounds, and I also had three younger kids in the back seat. He is also well within the age to know better. I honestly do not think he new what would happen he was just playing around and never thought the shifter would actually move so easy. And being that it is my car and we've been married 27 years I really was not two worried about my husband after all I can always buy a new car. I just thought I would ask here, it'* been a couple of days the car seems to be fine and I did tell my husband the same day I made the original post. I do appreciate the responses I received, they alll helped.
