What he said. It's only in Automatic Transmissions...I haven't heard of this happening in manual transmission cars.

There is a how-to by Wolfman in the help section to help you diagnose if you indeed have this issue.

It does only happen in automatic cars. The end nut on the output shaft tends to loosen up. It entails of removing the end cover, replacing the nut and torqueing it to spec. If not repaired, it can actually cut a hole in the trans case. It causes low pressure problems in the trans, and since reverse takes full pressure you get the "slamming" into reverse after pressure builds up.

slamming is when you insult someone in a humous way....

Never argue with an idiot, they will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

If you have it, you'd know. Simple as that.

Mine has done it one time. People here make it seem like you can just sit there, shift into reverse, and while still sitting, it will slam into gear. Mine doesn't do that. The only time it did it was when I was still rolling forward, put it in reverse, and gave it gas before it finished shifting. Then it just bucked into reverse but it wasn't very violent.
