Gave our son our 2007 Subaru Impreza years ago to get to work and college. Had a 2019 Ascent on order since feb/march. They kept moving up the delivery date...we had our car sold and the people needed it before the august 17th date. We got cold feet reading blogs and forums as the new ascent had various troubles, and we needed to not loose this sale of our car. So called costco and got a dealer 2 hours away from us. Called got costco pricing and packed up the 2 dogs and drove 2 hours up and spent the day up there and 2 hours home last night with a 2018 Subaru Outback touring in a beautiful white pearl color. Hubby loves it as he got to drive it home. I think we will be happy with our decision (we got the 6 cyl)....can always upgrade later to the ascent but I have a feeling we won't need to. Saved a lot of money this way.
