Just wanted to add info on my ascent. I’ve had several issues with my car. Transmission was replaced at 6k miles and is bad in the shop for creaking sounds from the front. I was just told that I have a leaking ball joint in the front passenger side. Dealership has contacted Subaru since the joint is damaged. Been dealing with this issue for months. Glad the problem has been found but I’ve been in a loaner for almost two months for various issues. Giving up on this car. If anyone else is having problems going over bumps or creaking/knocking when coming to a stop and turning, it could be the ball joints.
