I live in the Houston area and we are in the middle of a week long heavy rain. Sometimes several inches in an hour. I must say I am very impressed with the Ascent’s AWD and handling in the extremely wet roads. I hit flooded streets without warning going a bit faster than I wanted to and the Ascent did not flinch. Most cars when they hit a flooded area yank the wheel one way or the other. My Ascent keep straight as an arrow. The harder it rained the more impressed I got with the AWD system. Never a hint of hydroplaning.

Even the stock tires seem to do good on the really wet roads when it is coming down so fast that you can hardly see the tires just seem to grip.

Subaru really does shine in bad weather.
