    I have a 2017 Honda civic hatchback sport CVT. I was driving onto coming traffic at 30km/h or 19mph when my girlfriend nudged the gearshift to neutral. I was on the accelerator so it revved up to 4000rpm for 2 seconds. I had to shift into drive from neutral right away because of oncoming traffic so I'm not sure what rpm I had at the time. I would never neutral drop on purpose but would doing it moving by accident like I did cause any damage to the tranny? What should I look for? I really love this car even it being CVT pls help.

    Does this car have a safety feature to prevent neutral dropping? I'm more worried about how I went from neutral to drive while moving and with high ish rpms

    I would not worry about it. Hopefully there is no trouble. If there is, there is probably not much to do about it at this point.

    Your girlfriend needs wrist restraints when you drive now , have you noticed anything different from driving it right after that incident or a couple days after? It should be fine it just went into neutral not P

    Keep an ear open for any excessive whining from the cvt. Since you were already moving I think you'll be fine.

    I got cuffs LOL. Yeah going into neutral was not too worrying for me it was having to get back into drive from neutral while unsure how high the rpm was. This is essentially neutral dropping but moving I guess. Haven't noticed anything yet i think it's just my brain but feels like I'm guzzling gas now. Doesnt feel sluggish really.

    I've done something similar when i shifted from S to N accidentally instead of D and then gave it gas and was hitting the rev limiter and looked down and noticed it was in N so I shifted back into D while the rpms were still moderately high without thinking. The car didn't lunge at all so i'm thinking there is some sort of protection that waited until the rpms dropped to safe range before it actually went into drive. Didn't notice anything that was off since then:drive:

    Can’t see any damage occurring.
    All modern cars will normally kill any excess RPM by cutting fuel if RPM doesn’t coincide with reasonable vehicle speed.

    I have cuffs LOL honestly I dont hear or feel much different doesnt feel extremely sluggish. Might just be my head but feels like gas is going down faster? Might just be a placebo effect.
