The well rounded GMC Acadia.

The Acadia is a super comfortable car to drive. It gets good gas mileage, about 18. 5 mpg on country roads. It is loaded with every amenity you can imagine. It is large and roomy but not too big to be uncomfortable parking or driving in busy areas. The rear view camera is a nice feature when backing up the car. It helps ensure after looking around that nothing is behind the car. The lift back is handy to stand under when it is raining when loading the car. The third row of seats makes fitting a lot of people in the car comfortable and there is plenty of room in each row. All the seats fold down flat allowing you to load big items in the back. The cars also drives like a tank in the winter snow. Overall it is good all around SUV for anyone!

This is an ideal vehicle for a medium to large size family.

When I found my Acadia I was looking for something that was stylish, had lots of room for kids and luggage and was comfortable for traveling. I always like the style of the Acadia. It was big enough for a large family but didn't look anything like a van. My Acadia has tons of room. It can fit up to 7 people. The bucket seats in the middle are awesome. My kids do not need to climb over seats to get into the back. The back seats fold down easy if I need more storage space in the back. My model is a 2008. I love my Acadia so much I do not plan to change. I plan to upgrade in 5-10 years to a newer style Acadia because I am racking up the miles on mine right now. As far as mechanical stuff; I have not really had any major problems.

Love this vehicle! Not happy with the service from dealership.

This vehicle is very spacious & comfortable. 3rd row seat can fold down to expand trunk capacity. It drives nicely. We are experiencing some problems. Tire pressure sensor is not reading correctly. Rear driver side passenger window is not working properly. Radio screen is faded & sometimes doesn't work at all, it needs to be replaced. There is a stutter when accelerating at low speeds, this indicates the vehicle needs an entirely brand new transmission. The driver side door locking mechanism gets stuck. Our biggest issue with these problems is getting the dealership that sold us this vehicle to address & fix these problems in a timely fashion. As of now, it's been a month since we informed them of these problems.
