*Low milage so far is due to being at my cabin in Michigan's upper peninsula for a week and the Ascent being at home.

This is my 3rd Subaru. My first was a new 2009 Outback followed by a new 2011 Outback.

Reasons for purchase:
I like the look, driving feel and safety features offered by the new 2018 Ascent, and it was 'time' for a new car.
Upsizing from the Outback allows more, or larger, radio controlled model aircraft to be loaded into the back to take to the radio control flying field on a given day.
The all-wheel drive allows me to access my 'hunting' camp in the western wilderness of Michigan's upper peninsula.
At this time I am looking into returning to pulling a travel trailer, if possible, with my new Ascent. That is mainly why I joined this forum. When the family was young I pulled bunk house type travel trailers with Chevy Suburbans. I am looking into travel trailers that are now often called "couple's coaches".

I look forward to reading about others Ascent experiences and sharing my thoughts and concerns.

Hi Ken - Nice to hear from another Michigander and RC guy! I've had my Accent for a month and have about 600 miles on it. I bought it from Williams in Lansing and it's my 3rd Subaru also but my last one I bought in 1984 so it's been a while.

Welcome, lots of great info and tips here. Hope you enjoy your Ascent!
