This vehicle has an electronic gear selector. You move a lever forward or backward to select the gear.
There is a large display on the instrument cluster that tells you what gear you are in.
We've had this vehicle for 3 years with no issue. It took my wife and I approximately 1 trip to become comfortable with the new selector.
There is no problem with this design - drivers simply need to pay more attention to the act of driving instead of the million other things drivers do when they are behind the wheel.
