"We have had the Ascent for one year, about 10,000 miles, and have had no problems except for two factory recalls. One for CVT chain slippage and one for ECU reprogramming. Really like the adaptive cruise control. Love the heated leather seats and heated steering wheel. Access to third row is easy for grand kids through the second row captain's chairs. With almost all short trips and in town driving, fuel economy is disappointing at about 17MPG, but it is a big vehicle. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking at three row SUV. We also drove Enclave, Atlas, and Pilot but liked the Ascent's safety features and driving feel. The other vehicles were nice and would have been fine, just personal preferences made the Ascent our choice."
