Powerful Family Car. — We kept the car about two years. Would be happier with better MPG out of the engine this size, but never lacked in power. The DVD and Navigation are nice to have and the Bose Speakers are phenomenal. Nice leathers.

Sleek And Safe — I have loved Acadia's since the first time I laid eyes on them! I looked for a very long time for mine and it is absolutely everything I wanted. I love the way it handles and just grips the road. It is a very heavy vehicle so that is good and bad. Good because it is safe and doesn't have a high rollover rate. Bad because the acceleration isn't super but it's nothing near the worst. The Acadia is very spacious especially with the second row captains and there is a ton of head room.

Great Family Suv — Loved the options that are available on the vehicle. The power is excellent for a SUV V6. Style of the Acadia is also nice. Over all comfort of the vehicle is very good especially on long road trips. Over all a very nice vehicle.

Acadia Review — We have had this vehicle only a week and I love it. It is easy to drive, roomy, and looks GREAT. There are only a couple things we don't like; adjusting the seats to tilt is difficult because we only have 2 way power seats, and there is a "rattle" on the dash when driving on gravel roads that I am going to have the dealer look at. Otherwise I have researched this vehicle for 2 years and I love it. (A lot of money...but I love it so far.) The real test will come this winter!!
