First of all thanks to everyone that contributes to this forum. Here's my purchase experience.

My wife purchased the family's first Subaru, 2017 Outback a couple years ago. She loves the car. I've really liked it the few times I have been able to drive it! About a year ago I started thinking about replacing my Dodge Durango. At that point there was some hype about the Ascent. So I started watching it and researching all the current close competitors.

A few months ago I finally decided on the Ascent. That lead to a lot of time spent on these forums reading about every detail and opinion. Nothing I came across made me change my mind, so I started looking at local dealers and the inventories over the past several weeks. Finally came across one that made me pull the trigger and purchase.

I felt I was well prepared with all the advice, hints, tricks, and tips I found on these forums.

I was able to quickly and cheaply get the VIP discount by following the advice in this thread:

Get a $500 loyalty coupon from the advice in this thread:

Then save $650 from my local dealer's price on an extended warranty using what I learned in this thread:

We ended up with a limited in Tungsten, hitch, moonroof, and a few other items. Love it so far.

Again, thanks to all of you for contributing to help others out. I appreciate it.

When I bought my WRX in 2009 I fell in love with Subarus. 2 years later my wife traded her car in for an Outback.

The Ascent is my 5th Subaru.

It's common once there's one Subaru in the house for them to multiply like Tribbles! :D
