2021 Ascent Limited Black/Black
Hello everyone! We're the happy owners of a new (bought about 2 months ago) 2021 Ascent Limited, black w/ black, 8 seater. We absolutely love it, and have been dreaming about getting one since they first came out. This is Subaru #3 for me. My first was an '82 GL wagon that I bought back in '91 up in Alaska (live in Oregon now), and I absolutely LOVED that car and became hooked on Subarus for life. So great in the snow up there, and such a great camping car, that when it was time for something newer I bought a '95 Outback brand new back in "95, and absolutely LOVED that one as well, happily driving it until last year (24 years, I'd say I got my money's worth!) when it was stolen and too badly damaged to be worth fixing after it was found. But finally got the new Ascent and it is PERFECT! Well, as close to perfect as anything out there. My only minor quibbles to far are the stupid dim little light in the cargo area (switching to for an LED soon), the moonroof not closing all the way with one press of the button (makes NO sense), and the 3rd row windows being so small (not very good visibility for backing up or checking blind spot, and I'm not used to technology helping with those things yet, this being my first car built this century). But the things we love FAR outweigh any nitpick complaints. We've got a big family, with a toddler (and her giant carseat), teen girls, grown children, and our first grand baby (and her big carseat), so on any given day we might have anywhere from 3 to 7 or 8 of us riding along, so finally having this much room is fabulous, as is the ability to fold down that 3rd row and make room for a ton of whatever the heck we want to throw back there. And in addition to all the space and versatility, we love how this car drives, rides, and all the fun and useful tech features, safety features, and pretty much everything else. In short, this is the perfect car for us, and we are totally happy! (at least until last week when some idiot decided to key the driver's door of our beautiful new friend. Sigh...
