Hi,
I have owned a older Outback and am now considering making the purchase of an Ascent. While I am not crazy enough to jump off of the cliff with a purchase of a car that I have not driven yet I want to gather much more info.

I am pretty sure everyone on here that pre-ordered, myself included, only had to put a refundable deposit down. I am 95% sure we will be buying it when it arrives, but we will definitely test drive it first.

Exactly. I wanted to place my order now to ensure that I have the option to purchase the exact trim/color/options that I prefer a few months after release at a pre-determined price.

I am pretty certain that the Ascent is what I will eventually buy, but if I test drive one and don't like it I can simply cancel my order.

Otherwise, if I wait to test drive one first and then place my order, I am probably going to be looking at November/December/January before I could get the trim/color/options of my choice unless I get extremely lucky and find an unsold one somewhere in my preferred configuration and can agree on an acceptable price.

Same boat have a outback want more room, ordered ascent its a Subaru they can't mess is up right. Hopefully not excited to drive it and see but if its crap (which I highly doubt it is) then we are able to get a refund and just walk away.

Same boat as you except my current vehicle might not last till next year (Catalytic converter) which is why I ordered. I saw it in person and really liked the layout but driving it will be the determining factor. I'm hoping they have Demo vehicles in May so I can test it out because if I don't like it I'll cancel and get my second choice vehicle (Explorer) and if I do like it I might talk to the dealer about trading in my vehicle early and taking a loaner until it arrives.


They said they could do that if my car breaks down which is a worry of mine right now.
