A great family vehicle, that doesn't feel like you are driving a bus.

I love how smooth the vehicle runs. It is hard to tell it is even on at times. It has 3rd row seating which is a must for me. Seats fold down to allow for more cargo room if needed. It is a very reliable vehicle that has never left me stranded. Have only owned the vehicle for a little over a year, but have had no major issues with it. Did have to get new tires this spring but that was just from normal wear and tear on the tires. It is very roomy inside yet feels like you are driving a car. The Bluetooth feature is great, I use to never answer calls while driving but now I can without ever taking my eyes off the road or my hands off the wheel. There are many great features besides the Bluetooth, if you like XM radio the vehicle is equipped with it, you just need to get the subscription. Driver and passenger controls allow everyone in the vehicle to adjust the temp so they are comfortable. No more one kid yelling they are cold, they can all adjust for their area. I get about 22 miles to the gallon on the highway but only around 17 in town. This again is not too bad. I was driving a truck that I was lucky to get 17 mpg on the highway, so for me this is good. I enjoy all the extras for the kids to plug in their electronics when we go places. The only thing missing from mine is a DVD Player and a moonroof! I enjoy this vehicle and when I am in the market for another vehicle I will be looking at an Acadia again, that is for sure. Love the vehicle.

2009 GMC Acadia -Spacious but Leary of mechanical faults

This vehicle has been wonderful for transporting kids and offers a spacious ride for both driver and passenger. I am disappointed in some of the mechanics on the car as my tire pressure warning light is on most of the time and is on everyday throughout the winter. Sensors were changed with new tires and for whatever reason the light still is on. I also frequently get a check engine light that will go on and then not be lit the next day. This particular year of the Acadia has an oil consumption problem. Unfortunately this was not caught by the dealership I purchased the vehicle from used and therefore by the time we discovered the problem it was out of manufacturers warranty. In order to fix this problem I need a new transmission and the car is not worth replacing the transmission at this point.

This vehicle is very family friendly, easy to drive, and nice to ride in.

This car is very nice. It is large enough that you can fit a good-sized family in it (or friends) but not too large that it takes up a lot of room and is difficult to drive. It has wonderful features including a dashboard that has the speed projected on it using light technology so that you can Focus on the road while also checking your speed. It is comfortable to sit in, with leather seats that are adjustable in many ways. Heated seats are also a bonus for cold weather. In the summer, the sun roof comes in handy for a greater feeling of freedom and fun. However, my car has had a few problems with tire pressure. It continually decreases and I have to fill the tires almost twice a week in the winter.
