Hi all, didnt know where else to look so here I am. I bought a 2010 with 176k miles, 2 weeks after I got it, I started having problems with reverse. Sometimes when I shift to reverse and start backing out, my car feels like what I can only explain as if the emergency brake was on. It starts shuddering and feels like it doesnt want to move. If I put it in neutral and let off the clutch when this happens, it starts to idle rough. I had the garage check the clutch and they said it was fine. I havent found this same type of issue in any forums so I'm hoping someone has some input!

Heyo, I have a similar problem with my 2013 hatchback with 100k miles on it, and I've also not seen anything about the problem. I think I've only noticed it happening when going uphill in reverse, with the clutch all the way out. I just avoid it by rolling down my driveway backwards in neutral, and driving back out in 1st.
