What year? 2017+ with the dial shift? A year affected by the shifter grommit failing?

I would guess that if you are mildly mechanically able to look under the hood, I think no matter what year (2013+) and engine (except maybe the 2.7 GTDI) that the shift cable connection to the transmission is pretty easy to spot and see if it is disconnected/broken, and can be a $5 part. There are youtube videos that show it.

Your owners manual wouldn't help in this case, and you can download an electronic copy of it though.

Be sure you are using your parking brake when you think it is in park, and if you do work on it. Again, is probably a $1 part and 5 minutes work.
