2011 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

I was pulling into a parking space when my vehicle suddenly accelerated forward 20 feet into a brick wall and plateglass window. My foot was on the brake the entire time but the vehicle increased acceleration until it hit the wall. I replaced this vehicle with a 2014 Subaru Legacy and found, on this site, that there is one acceleration complaint for that vehicle as well. This really upsets me! My research has discovered that there are many complaints about this problem with Subaru Foresters but I didn't realize there was the same problem with the Legacy. My experience was upsetting enough that I may just get rid of the Legacy.
