I have a 2016 Crosstrek automatic and about two months ago I was driving home from a destination that's about 3 hours away. I was on the freeway and had been for over an hour when my car just went completely limp. The accelerator wouldn't work and I had to coast off to the side of the road where I restarted it.
I had no issues for several weeks so I began to think maybe I was losing my mind and that didn't really happen. But then it did it again. As I was on the freeway and had been for over an hour again it just goes limp. This time I was less panicked and paid close attention. Nothing was on the dash board saying something was wrong, my car still said it was in drive, and when I hit the gas pedal the engine didn't rev; like it wasn't even connected.
Once again I restarted it and I was fine the rest of the way home. I took it to the dealership and they can't find anything and told me "next time it breaks down to call them and don't turn off my car." But I don't want to go through that again it was stressful!
I saw on here someone else had experienced that but I can't get them to respond. Has anyone out there ever heard of this that can help me? Thanks!
