I am a new member to this forum ... have been active on the Outback forum for a few years. We have had a bunch of Subies over the years for our family, pretty sure we are over 10 now. Anyway, I just gave my 2017 Outback Touring to my MIL who needed a car and she like mine. Since she let me marry her daughter, almost 40 years ago, I gave her my Outback. Truth be told, I wanted something a little bigger and giving my Outback to her was a legit way to shop for new wheels. So now I am in the market for a new SUV, and I am considering either an Ascent or a Traverse. I was wondering if anyone has any first hand experience with either vehicle and can shed insight into my decision. As a final note, I will use the car for long road trips, for very light towing, fishing, and other honey-do projects as they arise. Thanks in advance.
