I believe you are the first member here who rode in a Ascent...congratulations :smile:Hello,
Can't wait for the Ascent to land! I've got six kids and this will provide a great alternative to our Ford Transit. Oh, and I got to ride in a Ascent just yesterday! :grin:
Yes we need more details especially on ride, engine power, and cabin noise!!I believe you are the first member here who rode in a Ascent...congratulations :smile:
How was the ride, engine power, cabin noise, seat comfort, material quality etc?
I never owned any Subaru's before, but already preordered mine and love to know more about the Ascent.
Forgot to ask was it a Touring did you get to try the ventilated seats?
It's not the front but this might give you a better idea of what the arm rest looks like. Not sure why this pic goes sideways when I upload it. I've rotated 90 degrees before it's uploaded and it's 180 degrees off!Looking at the picture of the front passenger door, it doesn't look like there is any place to rest your arm...or am I just not seeing it?
Good to hear that it worked well. My wife has it in her Sonata and since I have to get leather I wanted that feature and it was the reason I ordered the Touring model.Yes, it was a touring and that's the first thing I turned on! Felt nice. I've got 6 kids and the 8 passenger model on order. Really wish I could have those and the rain sensing wipers on the 8. Oh well...
I also activated the rear view camera in the mirror. Pretty neat idea. I was so overwhelmed that I didn't try the front facing camera.
I wish I did, sorry. Actually one of the salesman took those 2 comparison pictures to tease me before I made it up there. Really puts in perspective...Thanks for the photos. Gives a good idea on the size of the Ascent compared to the Outback.
Would you happen to also have a comparison photo of the sides? /forum/images/smilies/smile.gif
Agreed on the usefulness of the 2nd rear camera. I do see a case when you're towing and have a car full of gear in the back. Sometimes our Ford Transit 150 is packed to the top on family vacations. I could imagine it might be nice to check out back sometimes. Or see how close someone's riding your bumper!Good to hear that it worked well.

I checked out a rear view camera in the Traverse and it is neat but I'm not sure how much I would really use it. Front facing camera is should be nice especially for pulling into tight spaces!
