  1. After market parts

    2019+ Subaru Ascent General Discussion Forum
    Touring does not include any such thing, sorry. A dealer may include to add it for customers though.
  2. Tire Compatibility

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    245/65R17 is the matching 17" tire size. Finding rims that both fit over the front calipers and are also rated at 1,850 pounds load rating is the tough part.
  3. speakers fade off and on

    Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    Please keep me posted. I know Android has that issue. It would be good to know if an iPhone doesn't or does too.
  4. Navigation failure, must replace Harmon Kardon head unit

    Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    Those are earlier generations of the head unit.
  5. Navigation failure, must replace Harmon Kardon head unit

    Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    They're pretty much the same version. Upgrading wasn't necessary but shouldn't have hurt. Please keep me posted. I've never heard of all three screens shutting down.
  6. CVT a bit jerky at low speeds

    2019+ Subaru Ascent General Discussion Forum
    The torque converters have done this for ages. The only torque converter issue I am aware of is regarding a bad seal, which was redesigned years ago. As for raising a complaint, or anything else, go to the contact page on Subaru.com and choose your method of communication (eg: email, phone...
  7. Hitch cover grommets fall out

    Subaru Ascent Complaints, Issues And Problems
    They're identical to the originals. I think some of the originals were initially installed incorrectly. šŸ˜•
  8. one tire blew out, only 9K miles, should I replace all four?

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Don't worry, Subaru thought of that too. It's literally one of the first things in that section (spare tire section) of the instructions. They expect people will pull off the road before trying to change a tire, and recommend such. ;) I should have included it. Thanks for pointing out the...
  9. Fog light output (photos?)

    Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    I do find they light up the car's corner areas nicely for ultra-close-up lane marker visibility, but, I also find people think that I have my brights on, I guess because of how bright the LEDs are and they also see a second set of lights on at the same time. :sneaky: But yeah, I also don't...
  10. one tire blew out, only 9K miles, should I replace all four?

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Not just should it be used for a very limited time, but the manual implies the warning of how driving on it affects our always on AWD... here's some of the places from the manual that discuss using a donut wheel (aka "temporary spare tire") - I'm bored on lunch break, so, I went a little...
  11. OEM steel rims ?

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    That honestly baffles me. But, I've experienced it personally. I can get things shipped from China, most of Asia, and parts of Europe for less than getting the same item shipped from Canada. There's times I feel like shipping stuff to someone on the other side of the border and drive across to...
  12. one tire blew out, only 9K miles, should I replace all four?

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Fortunately, Subaru has been listening. Certain Outback trims now once again come with a full sized spare. I expect that the Ascent will need some design mods to fit one properly, but, with enough owner feedback, I expect we'll either see a full spare option, or at least the ability to fit one...

    Subaru AWD is different than part time systems, and the tread difference is below the limit. Subaru specs are: 1/4" total circumference difference or less or 2/32" tread difference or less. A differential is far more expensive than a set of tires, and then there's the labor.
  14. Front View Camera

    2019+ Subaru Ascent General Discussion Forum
    Most manufacturers have a top level trim with exclusive features. Apparently, that actually works better in the end, which is why most do that. There's no differentiator if one can buy a Limited or Premium and turn it into a Touring.
  15. That's it for me, anyone else giving up?

  16. Problem with bugs in under hood airflow

    DIY And How To
    I think we are a little luckier in that regard, because of the way our ducting is arranged. I also think the hood scoop duct looks really cool. Someone mocked up one on an Ascent a while back, but I can't find it.

    For those not local to a Discount Tire store, simply take any discounttire URL and add "direct" to it, like this: https://www.discounttiredirect.com/buy-wheels/vision-cross-ii Their site geolocates you, and won't show you the product at the store site (DiscountTire dot com).
  18. Watch an Outback Being Assembled

    2019+ Subaru Ascent General Discussion Forum
    Side note. The Ascent is made on one of the same lines, by the same people who make the Outback. They alternate cars, never with two Ascents back to back, but sometimes with two Outbacks back to back. I highly recommend the factory tour, btw.
  19. Unrepairable tire, any good 20" recommendations?

    Oh, FYI, they're noisy and less street friendly than the Continental TerrainContacts or the Yokohama AT G015s.
