So made a pre order for the new Ascent Premium about a month ago with my local dealer up here in Alaska. Having AWD is top on my list and really liking what the Ascent has to offer in a 8 passenger SUV. My wife's current vehicle is a 2013 Mazda CX-9 AWD touring that we bought brand new in 2013. We now have just about 92k miles on it and has been good rig for the most part. Its only been to the dealer three times so far in its life: once at 10k for a dust cover that was rubbing on one of the CV axles, second time was for a lower control arm recall, and then finally a leaking PTU at 60k miles. Really have nothing else to the car other than oil changes, tires, and front brakes at 85k. Looking for the same reliability out the Subaru, if not better!
