I have already 10K on my Ascent, and I am think is not strong enough, 6 cylinder engine from Outback what I had before should be better for big vehicle as is Ascent, Subaru should make also the options like Mazda is doing to give you the choice for the size. I will prefer a little shorter about 8 " with 5 pass, and larger cargo area, something like bigger Outback, is pretty tall and wide. Left arm rest on the door is to, to to low. I am not left handed but driving by left hand-hanged in the air-WOW, very uncomfortable for long ride. Suspension should be firmer, car is floating like a boat on waves. Windshield should to be a little more vertical, driving in southern states is not a fun during all day sun. In my wife 2019 Forester sun visors are bigger , and have extensions, but Ascent not!!!. Car for almost 50k should to be better equipped- period. Any way have nice driving.
