My 2018 Forester has a rubber steering damper that causes vague steering at highway speeds, especially with full load. It is super annoying and tiring. I am planning to get a steering dampener lock out from Torque Solutions or Perrin. Does the Ascent have this also? I would like to recommend the Ascent to a good friend but cannot if a fix is unavailable. I have yet to order and install so I do not yet know the full result for me would be but just by feeling how soft the rubber is with my bare hands, I can see how it makes the steering so inaccurate. Because I felt how soft the rubber is, I am able to adjust my steering inputs to significantly improve. It is still really bad on tighter turns at higher speeds as it is impossible to carve a turn without having to significantly increase steering angle to hold line. Subaru should offer a choice or at minimum inform consumers of the trade offs as this can cause high speed steering inaccuracies that are not driver fault unless they have been informed and aware a semi rigid rubber is flexing your steering angle and get progressively worse at higher speeds and forces....
