Greetings from E. TN, replaced my 2006 GMC YUKON XL and in the process of selling my 2014 Cadillac CTS. My new Touring will fit the bill, far less expensively. So far, good decision, we will see the first big snowfall.
New member here from Nashville and looking to buy my first Ascent in the coming weeks (maybe used, maybe new). Longtime Outback owner (bought in VA) but have had it serviced at Downtown Subaru (not impressed). Where do you get your Ascent serviced around Nashville? Thanks!Greeting to you from Nashville (Mt. Juliet). I know there is someone from Knoxville on this site also.
Thanks, Robert. A quick Google search reveals that they might still be only in Huntsville. That's still within driving distance to me, though. I'm in the market for an Ascent, so I might check them out (esp. if they honor the VIP program).Landers McLarty Subaru is one of my favorites. They're in Huntsville, Alabama, but, I think they opened up a dealership closer to you. If you stop in, tell them "Subaru Ambassador Robert from NY" said hi!
I used my Ascent this past week to knock down (created some tracks) the 3' of snow fall in my street for neighbors. I did not do this all at once but as it fell maybe about 1' at a time.You will absolutely love it in the snow. It'll easily handle half a foot to 3/4 of a foot. I never plow my driveway anymore, and never have to wait for the plows to finally make it to my dead end street (which could be near the end of the day when I'm 8-10 hours late for work).
This was my former 2010 Outback. Nothing behind the car, and much of the street is unplowed, and you can get an idea of how deep the snow is from me wading through it to the car. With a far more powerful engine, the Ascent will easily be able to surpass my former Outback.
Hoping you enjoy your Ascent as much as I've enjoyed my Outback and am enjoying my Ascent.
