It would be frightening if your car engine suddenly stalled or lost power while you were behind the wheel. If you were travelling on a freeway at a high speed, this scenario could be quite dangerous, and you’d have to act quickly to avoid disaster. For many drivers of the 2017 Subaru Forester SUV, faulty engines that either stall or completely shut off have been reported, and consumers are waiting for a formal explanation as to why these incidents are occurring.
One driver described repeated instances where the 2017 Subaru Forester SUV begins to stall, prompting the driver to depress the gas pedal all the way to the floor in order for the car to begin accelerating. Another individual reported driving on a crowded freeway at around 30 mph, when she attempted to change lanes. As soon as the move was complete, the car lost power and decelerated to a speed of 1 mile per hour, and pressing the accelerator did nothing. After pulling the car to the side of the road and turning it off for a full 15 minutes, the car started and the accelerator responded normally once more. Other reports of engines that either lose power or cause sudden acceleration have been reported as well.
