Good you are ok after that accident.
I hate to say so, but you better off ridding of that car. It will be nothing but trouble from now on.
1. No, there are no torque convertors or clutches.
2. It's almost like the E-Brake is on slightly and there might be some sand stuck between the pads and rotors, obviously that is not the case How do you know it is not? Or, stuck caliper? Double end collision will result in all kinds of body and structural components damage, no matter how much repaired. I am still wondering, how come air bags didn't deploy. That said, anything is possible now.
This is why you better off ridding of the car. As, after insurance settled, YOU will be the one to pay for follow up repairs and many will come.
Harsh as it may sound. True, unfortunately. I'd not own any rear ended hybrid to start with, because of where the traction battery is located. In the trunk.
