I hate Subaru Outback 2011
This is a true story that happened Jan 7, 2014. I live on a a street with about a 15% incline. I pulled up into my driveway turned off my car put foot on brake, brake went all the way to the floor, I tried to brake over and over, nothing (the car was off) the electronic emergency brake never worked (I have a video of the police officer who was first into my car after it crashed and the emergency brake failed to work for him also) I have been driving stick shift since I was a teen I am 59 I know where the clutch is, I was hitting the foot brake. Anyways, my car rolled backwards gaining speed out of my control I had to wait til it hit something to make it stop. Thank God no one was hurt!!! It hit the power box which stopped my car!
The Subaru dealer said I should have turned my car on and used the brake, you don't think of that when you only have seconds. They also said I should have known that when there is no power on the car the emergency brake is not supposed to work? Did you all know that? I never got in the car again. I traded it in for a car with a manual emergency brake!
PS we found many others on the internet that this has happened to!!!
Also, the Subaru dealer said they did not want to watch the video of the police trying the emergency brake.
