I was the first to preorder an ascent at my dealer the first day orders were open. Yesterday my dealer got 3 in, 2 touring 1 premium but none were Preordered. They are guessing july 7 for mine.
If I wanted black I could switch now but no way do I want a black suv. (ordered blue).
How unfair is that!
I am also on the fence about upgrading from the ltd to the touring. They said they would see about a dealer trade but boy I don't see another dealer giving up an ascent this early'
Thanks for letting me vent.

My dealership did the same. 2 came in that they are using for demos which is understandable. Mine won't be in until next week.

It is frustrating. You will find that pretty common here on the forum. The order in which people ordered has not resulted in those people being the first to receive cars at the dealerships.

Hang in there. LOL you have plenty of support here trust me

Man-o-man do I hear you. I keep telling myself 'Once I have it, all this waiting will be out of mind' but it is still pretty tough.

Its like turning 16. You can't wait to drive, but once it happens you almost forget about your anticipation.

I am having the same thoughts! I feel like I need a support group! Checking my email 20 times a day, stalking this message board, checking the dealer website to see any Ascent that resembles mine in transit. I feel like a little kid, waiting for their birthday, knowing that I’ll be getting what I wanted but I have to wait for the day of my birthday to open the gift in the hall closet. What makes it worse is that my birthday is the end of July so I keep telling my self that I just need to wait til then. But for real, I have no desire to wait!!! I know I’ll get what I want but when? Help!!!!!!

You are lucky. I have not been able to test drive one. Most likely won't be able to until my dealer gets my pre order in :(

They already bagged the sale with yours. They will make you wait.

The two Subaru dealers near me have a total of 21 Acents "in transit." Does that mean they will be available for sale or does that number include pre-orders? If I see one I like online, I might just offer $5,000 over MSRP even if it is a pre-order. That will challenge the ethics of the Sales Manager. Just kidding.

The VIN's are all over the board, lowest ends in 401717 - highest 408232. That's quite a spread for a vehicle without any presence on the lots of either of my two dealerships.

I thought that Subaru gave sold orders priority??I am pretty sure I read that in a article by or about Subaru...
I think people preorder cars to get exactly what they want & to get their car first/early..
When people that order in March,May,June(!?) get their car before people that order in February, that is just wrong....You can talk about batch production all you want....Subaru needs to balance that with the expectations/ wants of their customers...loyal customers.....
It’s somewhat like lining up at 2 am at Best Buy for the killer Black Friday deal on the big screen TV and someone just walks up to the front of the line and swoops it up....Most would not like that......

Whaaaaaa?!? I've only gotten the distinct impression from others here that this is sold out until 2019. You MUST pay what the dealers are now insisting you pay because demand so vastly exceeds supply.

Oh....not so much....

My dealer in MA just sent me an email to come test drive my model, which I'm going to do. Mine should be in on Monday. I was surprised there would be any for testing.
