GMC Acadia- The ultimate family car!

This car has truly been wonderful for me and my family. It has plenty of room, the seats fold down to give you more trunk space when you don't need the extra row. We added a car carrier on top for even added storage for long trips. It is very comfortable, drives well, and feels very sturdy. I love the option for captain seats for the second row. It allows my oldest to get into the 3rd very easily, or a great space for our dog to sit between the seats! The captain seats fold down or slide up to accommodate getting into the back seat with ease. There is plenty of legroom in the second row and the seats are adjustable to allow more room in back row should you need it. My biggest complaint is, at least with the 2013 model, the headrests in the back seats do not slide up and down. It makes it extremely difficult for the tether strap for car seats and makes removing them a pain (which I do often!) my Acadia came with navigation system, backup camera, and Bluetooth. I love the ease of the blue tooth with buttons on the steering wheel as well as the option to pick up the call on the touch screen. My car comes with a sunroof and moonroof in first and second rows which allows for tons of light but both have darkening screens when it is too bright. Overall, this car has been great for me and I would buy another one in the future!

Basic mom-mobile- happy but will want more in the future.

I drive a 2013 GMC Acadia. I called it my mom mobile. I love that my vehicle has 3 rows of seats. I can comfortably put my two in children in car seats in the second row and still have the third row for extra seating. Or I can lay the third row down for extra room for groceries. It performs very well and uses less mpg than a full sized SUV. I do wish though that I wouldn't have gotten the basic model. The headrests do not move which is really a pain when moving car seats to clean. It takes forever and good bit of energy to pull the car seat buckle through a tiny hole between the head rest and top of the back part of the seat. I also wish I would have gotten the model with the automatic tailgate. I am a very short petite lady and that rear door is heavy and hard to reach. Sometimes I have to jump and use all my body weight to close it. If I were to buy another vehicle, I would definitely be interested the market for another Acadia. I would however get some with bells and whistles so I could be more comfortable and might go for a slightly larger model as well. My husband is tall and when he sits in the front seat, he pushes his seat all the way back so he has more leg room. But then my kids have no leg room in the he back seat.

Enough space leftover after 3 car seats are installed in the car. Very roomy!

My Acadia is used as our primary vehicle in the house for transporting kids. We have 3 car seats in the car, 2 in the back and one in the middle row and I love that the two in the back still have plenty of legroom. My husband is 6�3� so he requires a lot of legroom and he can have ample room in the front and middle rows without being uncomfortable. My kids love the option of being able to control their own level of heat/air to the back rows. One negative is the limited trunk space when the back seat is up. With having two car seats in the back I can't lay the seats down when going grocery shopping and the trunk is very limited on space. It would be nice to have the trunk sunken down at least for a little more room. The car drives and handles excellent and we've had very few problems. We had to replace the a/c unit last year but otherwise mechanically it has been amazing and very reliable. I love the Bluetooth feature and hands free radio and Bluetooth options from the steering wheel.
