My story is not a short one. Suffice to say I was excited about the amAscent when I began looking for three-row SUVs back in May of 2018. I was leasing a Crosstrek at the time, my sixth Subaru, and was unfortunately in an accident that totaled that car in August of 2018. I placed an order for my Touring trim Ascent and waited eight weeks until the delivery date on October 28th. Upon receiving the car it was everything I hoped it would be and more. That is until I had a flat fixed! Skip ahead five months and as of this moment I've had the car in front of three different mechanic shops, two of them dealerships, and I've engaged with Subaru customer support. I have never been treated so badly by any customer support office ever as I was by Subaru's! I was blown away that Subaru Loyalty means so little, and that issues not able to be identified by the dealership are not even taken as legitimate inquiries. So all this is to say, Buyer Beware! The new electronic steering that they're putting in these cars is not ready for wider adoption if a simple tire change can completely hork up the steering to the point where the car is bouncing off the sides of the lane and the even lane keep assist can't keep the car inside the lane. At this point driving my Subaru EVER DAY frustrates me to the point I want to drive it off of a cliff. I caution anyone against buying the Subaru Ascent until they have addressed this problem, but because they refuse to even acknowledge it it will probably be a few years before it's addressed. Right now mechanics are chalking it up to road crown, potholes, alignment, etc. I have had 5 alignments done on my car in the last 5 months and I know it's not that or the other any if the other excuses that they're trying to come up with. This is typical behavior from a dealership mechanic shop that cannot identify an issue-they refuse to even acknowledge that there is one! I am EXTREMELY disappointed in Subaru and will not be buying an eighth. Moreover I'm going to get rid of this POS as soon as I can. In the back of my mind I'm thinking, I'll go trade it in and they'll drive it and then come back and say it has some steering issue. LOL. I have to laugh about it right now because I would just go crazy owing $45,000 on a complete piece of s***. DO NOT BUT AN ASCENT!!!
