 Description of the problemOn saturday, april 30th, i was turning around in a driveway, when all of the sudden my car took off. I had no time to react, except to try to use my brake. What stopped me was hitting a tree. My car is a 2008 subaru legacy with over $5,000 in damages. The police investigated and i was not cited. When i returned home, i looked on the internet to see if acceleration problems were common in subaru's. I did find that foresters has problems; but i also found that some legacy's also has acceleration problems, in particular i found a 2008 subaru legacy with this problem. I reported my findings to my insurance company and to subaru. Subaru did not get back to me; my insurance company gave me your website to file a complaint. My logic is, why should i or my insurance company pay for something that was out of my control and was the fault of the car. Evidently, there are no recalls for subaru's for this problem. I just hope it does not happen again - next time i might not be as lucky.
