Bye bye, Tanner. Welcome Tanner 2.0!

I bought a 2017 XT touring September 1st. Pretty, fun car in Sepia Bronze metallic.
Was at a stop light; light turned green; I moved forward about 50 feet and all the airbags went off. Never saw anything.
Young driver in a black truck (headlights not on) turns on a red arrow with green 'straight-through' lights and boom. Pics attached

No injuries except my passenger's back issues were aggravated.
No witnesses, no buildings with cameras so it's one driver's word against the other.

Took 3 weeks to find another SBM XT Touring but with Eyesight this time.

I'm a happy Subaru owner!

Wow glad you are ok, sorry to see such a nice car destroyed, very solid cars to take a hit in. What are you replacing it with?

Glad everyone is ok! You won't regret the EyeSight. It has saved my butt a few times.
