Anyone know if it's possible....maybe hacking into the computer to do so.

Really dislike them....i have a legacy and these are not present and much better driving experience.

Not yet. :sad: But, perhaps you could email Subaru of America and suggest that option (I did). The more of us that do that, the more likely there's a chance there will be an update making it user selectable so we can disable them.

Do you have a direct email? Or do you need to go through their website to send it?

They both go to the same place, so, the form is generally easier as it goes right into their ticket system.

https://www.subaru.com/customer-support.html

Once you click "Email", don't click off the form until you're done and have submitted it (it'll erase what you put in the form).

Yeah, you can blame the generic American consumer for them.

Our first CVT transmissions didn't have them. So the engine would wind up and get loud as the car sped up, then when it reached speed, the engine noise would come down. Americans being used to shift points complained. So they programmed them in.

People suck sometimes:) Hopefully they'll offer the option to deprogram this, but i'm thinking not because then people who are aware of the shift points might get into an Ascent and think something is wrong with it

People will complain either way. Just like the radio coming on when you start the car. Some people want it always off when you start the car. You'll never please everyone... There will always be nitpickers.
