I’m a first time Subaru owner, 2019 Ascent Touring model. Two issues make me crazy. 1) when I press the gas to move forward, after a full stop, there is a delay in power with RPM increase then drop.
2) Third row headrest is awful. Has one adjustment. The design is uncomfortable. My eight yr old complaint.

Hi, two tricks.

  1. Someone dremel'd slots into it so it becomes multi-position, like the front ones.

  2. I've found pillows or cushions like these work as well...

IIRC, they pulled a first or second row headrest, and made matching notches in the third row headrest bars, using the cutting wheel. The tool looks like this...
