2022 Ascent Touring
I know this has been discussed to the point of overkill but I felt it needed a new thread due to some new information. I have many contacts at Subaru and I talked with one who had gone to the training for the new 2020 Ascents. They were told the new 2020 has the technology for Lane Centering but it is not activated. I took possesion of my 2020 Ascent Touring two weeks ago. I purchased it, and waited, because they had advertised Lane Centering and I was told at the dealership that it would have lane centering. Subaru employees were told, at the training, that the software would not be unlocked/updated for lane centering and that a new vehicle would have to be purchased in the coming years. I am fine with companies making decisions like this if they want, I am not ok with something being advertised, even if it is a mistake, and then taking it away if the technology is there. I would like to know how others think. I believe it is worth calling Subaru out on this since they had marketed it this way originally. I don't know if it will change anything, but maybe it would put pressure on them to update the software for the new 2020 owners.
