nice looking car, drives smooth, ride is comfortable and handles well for an SUV however, damn near every major component has been replaced and a couple of them left us stranded, e.g. transmission failure requiring new tranny. It's in today for an A/C issue and has had water pump, alternator, A/C, power steering failure, brake system, and many more.... make sure to have the best warranty you can buy if you go GMC
Pros: The folding second row seats are the best in the industry.
Cons: Heating controls should be positional (rotary or slider), not buttons.With over 44,000 miles this vehicle has been trouble free. The Acadia with optional chrome wheels, pearlesent white paint and brick and black interior as beautiful as it has been reliable. Mileage is good for such a big vehicle, but I hope full hybrid version comes out soon.
LONG ENOUGH TO EVALUATE

Cons: PROGRAMMING NAVIGATION SYSTEMWE HAD A 2000 MERCURY FOR 8YEARS HAVETHIS ACADIA LONG ENOUGH TO VALUE THE REAL DIFFRENCE SEATS ARE VERY COMFORTABLE FOR AND ADULT OVER THE AGE OF FIFTY REALLY GREAT ON OPEN INTERSTATES AVG. 19 MPG WITH A AWD IN WESTERN KS.
Style, comfort, utility, plus...
Pros: great styling
