I realize I have hijacked my own thread with questions about the Ascent. After looking into documented cases the numbers are overwhelming for two huge problems and one deal killer. I haven't dove into issues because our purchase is still a ways off, but wow, didn't expect this.

CVT issues are by far the most prevalent, but seem to be improving (although would have to be better by 2022). It's the "rising oil level" problem that is caused by gas in the oil that is more concerning, because it seems to be something that SOA is not sure what to do about. On top of that, it's still happening for MY2021. The guess that it "resolves itself" because the rings finally seat, but what damage is done? No thanks.
