Had a Toyota Highlander Limted AWD for 4 years and was very happy with it. Was not looking for a new vehicle but as a lark I test drove the Ascent and loved it. The dealer discounted the Ascent $3500 and offered me the equivalent of $30,400 for my Highlander. After some haggling I could not resist. So far I have not been sorry. All the controls on the Ascent are much easier to access and use including the infotainment center. Plus I love their dog commercials.
