WHAT I JUST TALKED ABOUT... THAT IT IS DESIGNED TO CUT OFF AT STOPLIGHTS, ETC. HAD I KNOWN ABOUT THAT BEFORE I PURCHASED IT, I NEVER WOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT.

I LIKE IT SINCE IT IS NEWER THAN ANY OF OUR OTHER VEHICLES, WHICH ARE A 2003, 1993, AND 1996. IT HAS A LOT OF NEW FEATURES THAT WEREN'T AVAILABLE ON OUR OLD CARS/TRUCKS. I DISLIKE THE ENERGY SAVER THING THAT CUTS THE VEHICLE OFF WHENEVER I STOP. AT EACH STOP LIGHT, ETC, THE VEHICLE SHUTS THE MOTOR OFF TO SAVE ENERGY, THEN WHEN I HIT THE GAS IT AUTOMATICALLY STARTS BACK UP. I WOULD THINK THAT OVER TIME, THIS WOULD BE VERY BAD FOR THE SUV'S STARTER, BATTERY, ETC.

Benefits to the GMC Acadia.

GMC Acadia is very reliable and I have not have any problems with it so far. It is extremely comfortable and very roomy in the backseat. The bucket seats are very helpful especially with small children. The additional sunroof in the back is a great addition although it does not open. There are two drawbacks with this car. The pickup on acceleration is slow and the headlights are extremely dim at night. But overall I am very happy with the vehicle.

- Nicole H

I love the connectivity of the vehicle with my phone and it shows on the screen.

I love the space that comes with 3 rows of seats. I love the control panel and the ability to hook my phone up to the screen for navigation. I love everything about my Acadia except for the seatbelt on the drivers side. It always ends up to high and I keep pulling it off of my neck. There is no way to adjust the height. I had to buy a strap to keep it in the proper position. I feel that if an accident happened it would injure my neck.
