Without pulling the trigger on the shifter:

With my foot on the accelerator the shifter often slips all the way from L to N.

With my foot off the accelerator it will only go from L to D, unless I pull the trigger.

When in D, with my foot on or off the accelerator, it will not slip into N, unless I pull the trigger.

Anyone else??

From l I can go back to d without pushing the button. From d to n I need to push the button.

This is on my Cmax.

Yea, it goes from L to D without the button every time. That's not what I'm talking about. With my foot on accelerator it will go from L, straight through D, into N without pulling the trigger. Without my foot on the accelerator it stops at D.

Interesting.  I'm going to plug my car in to charge it up a little bit so I can try it.  Its empty now (hybrid battery only) -- already used it today to go to Cambridge and back.

Ok, I went and drove up and down my street for 1.1 miles.  Its not consistent, but I did manage to make it happen going from L all the way back to D but in my case only when my foot was OFF the accelerator.  I don't know the condition that makes it happen, but I tried several times and 2 times I was able to go all the way back to N.  I never do this anyways I usually go 1 click at a time from D to L and back but I tested for you to see what happens.

 

At the end of the day its not really an issue and you should be pushing it 1 click at a time not shoving the shifter forward to the stop.  Just do that, call it a bug, and don't lose sleep over it :)

Thanks for testing but I could have done without the arrogance and condescension. Of course I'm not trying to put it into N. Of course I'm trying to move it one click at a time but it slips into N with little to no difference in number or sound of click(s). Unless I'm extremely careful and push it very slowly it does what it wants.

When shifting from L to D, without the trigger, there is significant resistance to over come. There is no such resistance from D to N when it wants to go all the way from L to N. So I have to first push hard enough to over come this resistance, then know the exact point I will over this resistance so that I can suddenly stop before it actually makes the click noise. As the noise occurs when it has reached D or N. Not before.

This is not correct. The behaviour should not change whether my foot is on the accelerator or not and at the very least there should be equal resistance between D and N as between D and L. Otherwise I have to take my eyes off the road to avoid accidentally putting it in N and the added wear of the sudden torque of putting it back into D from N at highway speeds.
