Fix for the 2015 Subaru Forester "jack rabbit start" accelerator

#1

Is there an aftermarket fix for the “jack rabbit start” accelerator on my Subaru Forester. It is dangerous to parallel park because I do not know how far the car is going to go when I touch the accelerator. Thanks.

I have the same year and model, and have no problem as you describe. Take it to a good mechanic.

Why would you want an aftermarket fix? just get it repaired.

Maybe the problem is that the throttle body should be cleaned due to a sticking throttle plate.

I’ve mostly recalibrated my right foot to avoid the jack rabbit starts with my 2015 Forester. I’t did take some practice but I’ve found that just a little pressure on the pedal is enough to start moving. Makes driving in traffic and parallel parking a snap.

Do you have to switch between cars? I have some of that problem when I drive my wife’s car, the throttle is more sensitive. But after a while I adjust.
