In regards to you consideration of an Ascent - I wouldn't. The above philosophy and poor QC is rampant in that vehicle. Subaru is not the same vehicle it was when I started working on them 10 years ago. Glad I quit in 2019.
Thanks again. I have looked for known Ascent issues and saw the open tailgate, crappy windshield (which they said about my '17 Outback as well) and more, but these seem to be MY2019 which I was not considering. I am thinking about a 2022, maybe '23 and was hoping these things are worked out.

Especially missing welds on B-pillars...agreed that is bad QC.
