Here's my new member introduction. About 2 weeks ago I was driving to work at about 5 AM. At 60 MPH I blacked out-seems I have developed an arrhythmia. My Forester veered right crossing 2 lanes and left the highway. It then travelled about 100 feet down a 15 foot embankment through trees and bushes before coming to rest on a log near the edge of Sinclair Inlet near Gorst, Wa.. I regained consciousness maybe 30 seconds to a minute later. Amazingly enough other than the cardiac issue I didn't have a scratch on me. The right A-pillar had some damage and several panels were dented. I found out later that there was pretty extensive damage underneath and that along with the A-pillar resulted in the car being unrepairable.
Due to the fact that the arrhythmia could cause me to blackout at any time, I'm not able to drive for now. Once I get that problem taken care of I'll be buying a 2019 Forester Limited.

That's a helluva way to have to buy a new car. Glad to hear you are otherwise OK.

Wow, it sounds like you were extremely fortunate! Things can be replaced. Good luck dealing with the ticker. Sending good energy to you.

Wow, glad you're alright, and the Forester did her job. Also, welcome to the boards.
