My 2015 Honda Odyssey was parked in a parking lot and rear-ended. It was in park, but it was pushed forward about 25 feet when hit.
After the collision, putting the vehicle in park works as it did before: the car doesn’t move. But I am concerned that some damage may have been done to the transmission in the collision. Is it likely that the transmission was damaged? I was wondering if perhaps there might be some protective mechanism that takes the vehicle out of park when something like this happens (although, when I got in the vehicle after the collision, the lever itself was still in the “park” position).
Unfortunately, I did not witness the accident, and I did not check to see if there were skid marks where the vehicle had moved. So I don’t know whether the vehicle slid forward or rolled. It collided with another vehicle in front of it, which I presume is what stopped it from moving.
