Subaru sued due to defects in carsMay 22, 2020
Japanese car owners are suing the manufacturer.
Subaru car owners have filed a class action lawsuit against the manufacturer, as brand cars have defects that result in unintended acceleration.
We are talking about the 2012-2018 Subaru Forester crossovers, Legacy sedans 2015-2019 and Outback station wagons 2015-2019. So, one of the owners reports that she suffered from unintentional acceleration in December 2019, when she slowly drove through the parking lot. As a result, the SUV crashed into another car.
It is noted that the manufacturer was aware of this problem back in 2011, as the first complaints from customers began to come in and it was noted that even though the pedal was depressed, the car’s brakes unintentionally accelerated.
The lawsuit says that cars have trouble detection systems that cannot foresee the problem. It is clarified that the throttle position sensor, the throttle body assembly, the transmission control module and the motherboard are malfunctioning.
