Default Zombie Forester Attacks Apt Bldg in Portland

Details of the bizarre incident are at http://www.portlanddailysun.me/index...nto-apartments.

I suppose a Honda dealership will be the next target of a malevolent zombie Forester rampage.

Sounds pretty crazy, but if it was the 2014 forester there is actually a recall out for them on the floormats. Apparently the driver floormat tends to bend up in the corner and can push down the gas pedal. So if it was a2014 with the recalled mats still in it this maybe the case.

Hooligan Forester's on the loose! Between these and the packs of wild dogs controlling most of the major cities, we're not even safe in our own homes!

This Forester was locked, there was nobody in it, and the engine wasn't running.

Coincidentally, or not, there's another report today about a Subaru attacking a building. This incident in Maine, reported at http://www.timesrecord.com/news/2013...ck_office.html, claims the Outback's driver accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal, but I wonder.

There has been an issue with newer models that have factory remote starts installed but it looks like the Foresters weren't included in the recall.

Subies get depressed when they aren't driven off road. This poor forester decided to try and kill itself. At least it wasn't a forester xt.

Let's face it. Retard owner didn't put the park brake on. Because the likely hood of it failing is pretty low. Question is what kind of transmission is has...

EyeSight would have prevented that!!!

That's just turning on the car. Nothing to do with putting in gear(though this one wasn't) and rolling away without an occupant.

This manic Forester simply bounced off a Ford Focus and a UPS truck that tried to stop it. The UPS driver was shaken by how fast this driverless Forester was moving. Do you really think a measly 3" curb could have deterred this demon Forester from its diabolical destiny?
