2022 Subaru Ascent Touring
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
November of 2021 I received my ordered 2022 Subaru Ascent Touring. I was on the Ohio turnpike last Friday (Good Friday, 4pm, near Cleveland) when all of the sudden my rpm’s started bouncing back and forth between 3-4, my mpg gauge was sliding back and forth between yellow and green, and pressing the accelerator while the engine revved and the car lost speed. I was in the far left lane of the turnpike and had to dodge traffic to get to safety. My radio was up so I’m not sure about any odd noises. I turned the car off for about 10 minutes and ended up making it to my destination. Monday I took my car to the dealership where they kept it a few days, but no issues were found! They drove it 35 miles over three days. This car is less than 5 months old with under 6,000 miles! This was extremely scary situation that no matter how great the safety standards are could have been VERY bad. It sounds a lot like the stories I have heard about the 2019 transmission issues. Has anyone else had this happen?
