GMC 2016 Acadia-Mild Performance Issues With Brakes and Blind spots

One thing I really don't like about this car is the sheer amount of blind spots it has. I have counted about five to six different blind spots and it makes me feel very unsafe when driving the car. I definitely think that it needs a lower dashboard which would help to lessen the blind spots. Overall the gas-per-mileage is decent. Not the best thing as normally I have to refill the tank every other day which takes it toll on my pockets. But other than that I haven't had any mechanical/engine/transmission issues that this car had to be taken into the shop for meaning that it is relatively easy to take care of. The leather seats are comfortable and look nice but if you have small to middle school aged children with restless hands, the material to the seats will easily wear down so BEWARE don't lease this car with kids unless you want to pay a fine. Also the arm of the back seat chairs are susceptible to damage too regardless of age. If you put too much pressure (which isn't a lot) onto the seat then arm will dip and dip and become looser to the point where it's better to just leave the arm up and not use it at all. So far the exterior of the car holds to weather conditions as I haven't had any issue with rusting or breakdown around the bottom of the car. But driving in Michigan winter weather is an absolute nightmare in itself. The wheels slip constantly on ice, snow, and bad rain which makes me hate driving out in that type of weather.

GMC Acadia, overall a great vehicle with plenty of room.

The only major problem I have had with my GMC Acadia 2016 (purchased Oct. 2015) is the air conditioning system went out at the end of the summer in 2017. There was a leak of some sort and to be fixed, it cost me over $2,000 on a $50,000 vehicle and the warranty had just expired. A minor issue I have is recently that the radio and XM radio service gets stuck on one certain channel that is programmed in. It is a hassle, but not a huge problem. I love my vehicle and would purchase it again. I especially love my automatic remote start, heated seats and rear view backup camera. I do not like the headrests on the seats aa well. I feel they do not slide back enough to comfortably rest my head and if a passenger leans on them they move very hard and quickly that it somewhat hurts.

Love My GMC Acadia! It's only FWD but does great in the snow!

This is my second GMC Acadia and I have loved both of them. They provide plenty of room for extra passengers which helps when I need to pick up extra friends of my kids. I have the captains seats in the middle and I love that those and the 3rd row all lay flat if I need to haul something larger. I haven't noticed any real issues with blind spots. The back up camera is wonderful as is the alert if you are getting close to hitting anything. The MPG are pretty good for the size of the vehicle. I like a bigger SUV because it's easier for me to get in and out of but it's not so big that I have to jump out of it. I also have the dual sunroof which my kids and their friends thing is cool even though it doesn't open. Overall the GMC Acadia is a great SUV!
