I ordered them with our vehicle, but it may be the dealer was hoping they would be available by the time the vehicle is delivered.

Sounds like the person who should have the maker have them available at least a month after first delivery after all they had the specks over a year before making themmm

I got that too, the front underguard was the big thing that I thought had just disappeared.

Hopefully my next accessory. I have added them to most of the cars I've owned. On my 13wrx they were a combination tape and clips. On my 15 legacy it was only tape.

I know that WeatherTech hasn't released anything for the Ascent yet but has anyone done any comparison for other Subaru models - OEM widow deflectors vs WeatherTech?

As I've never been in a car with them, what benefit to they provide? Rain isn't a big issue where I live. Wind at speed? I rarely open my windows - long hair and windows get problematic. I had the moon roof deflector on my Outback and it really cut down on the air movement within the car. Only negative was washing the car, the deflector caught the water and it made keeping the area clean a bit tougher. Just curious as to what the main benefit of these deflectors are???

I always wondered how effective these were.

They look identical to the ones on my 15 legacy. Quality wise they're probably the best oem ive seen across the market. Cant say much about weather tech specifically but im not a fan of in channel. Functionally they allowed you to keep the windows open during rain and even keep your windows cracked in heat or whatever to let the cabin breath (with tinted windows you wouldn't even notice) when parked. Some people definitely like the look aesthetically and oem kept the chrome trim so it blends into the actually window trim subtly. Heres a couple pictures from the 15 legacy's

I've been using all makes and "models" for at least 30 years and have never, ever had any rain come in while parked or driving. I love leaving them cracked while parked in the hot sun to help with the heat buildup in a parked car. A crook can't tell that the window is cracked open.


I have purchased the cheapest ones and more expensive ones. I've never had one come off.

These are great for when your car is parked in the sun all day long. Leave the windows cracked and if a random storm pops up you don't have to worry about the rain getting in. They easily drop the temp inside the car by 10 degrees as opposed to keeping your windows closed all day. I think they add a nice look to the vehicle as well. The Subaru ones are nicer looking than some of the other brands out there.
