Why Did I Get An Achievement?

I have not purchased the Crash Course DLC, but as I pressed start on the main menu of the game, the 20 Car Pile-up achievement popped up. I haven't even played Left 4 Dead in a couple years.

I thought this was strange too. Happened a little more than a month ago. There was a new update, and as soon as you got it, the achievement popped. I asked my friend, and he got it too. Curious, I checked the achievements of everyone I played with that day, and their most recent achievement was the same.

Just a major glitch, one of L4D's countless ones. Really, Valve, you think with your experience there wouldn't be so many. Oh well, one less difficult achievement to get.

I was really happy when I got this! Although I think it kinda makes me look like I'm better at the game than I actually am! Haha!

Just got this myself, wasn't aware of the glitch, but just noticed this thread. Fun to get a free achievement, but I also don't like getting achievements that I didn't earn. Oh, well, not much that I can do about it.

Question and i got it

just loaded the game up and before i could select the storage device it popped up??? WTF I thought I've only got 3 cars on my count, so I checked this site and it's happening to allot of gamers. cool if your having trouble getting it, but now i have it, it's taken the fun out of throwing cars at other gamers to get this achievement.
