    reverse gears can get hard to shift into sometimes, is it a rough grind? because mine does from time to time (not too rough) , but I don't think you should worry much...

    in manuel cars you must be at a complete stop before shifting into reverse.

    Your clutch probably isn't disengaging all the way. Try adjusting your pedal.

    Maybe your tranny is just bad because of abuse. Either way, when you reverse, make sure you stop all the way and have your clutch all the way down. If it doesnt go in (don't force it) and/or if it grinds, try putting it in first (or any other gear) and then go down to reverse. I have the same problem because my syncros are bad so you just gotta baby it.
