Nice Driver — Overall, it's a nice vehicle if you need an 8 passenger vehicle. Has flexible seating and handles well even when fully loaded. My wife likes the power lumbar support for the passenger front seat. Usually, you only get that on premium level vehicles. Heavier on gas than I thought it would be but it can go over 400 miles between fill-ups on the highway.

Pros: Good looks, Quick turning radius for the vehicle size, Movable 2nd row seats, Nice Bose radio, Passenger power seat WITH power lumbar support, Comfortable ride.

Cons: No bluetooth, under powered, always down shifting at the slightest grade on the highway. Engine needs MORE torque. Only gets only 20 mpg on highway driving 65-72 mph.  Gets only 15-16 combined driving.

Pretty Awesome Suv — This is on heck of an SUV. It looks very impressive and rides very smoothly. The driving position is excellent and there are hardly any blind spots. This vehicle is loaded with features. Amazing overall, however one has to wonder about GMC and the reason why it's already leaking oil after only 100,000 kms...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Luxurious ride, classy interior, smooth. Very quiet, great suspension.  Front and rear torsion bars make cornering better than with most cars. The 6 speed transmission is very smooth, the shifter has a button  on the driver's side to manually shift up or down, very convenient. The engine delivers the right amount of power, however it does have to shift down from 6th gear when going uphill. Comfort for everyone, even the rear bench is big enough for 3 adults, wich is a lot better than with other SUV's. This one has the Heads Up Display.

Cons: The Onstar system does not allow to pair a cell phone. After 100,000 kms there are two small oil leaks, one from the power steering.

Love The Acadia — Definitely luxurious and multi-purpose! Heated leather seats, DVD Entertainment system with wireless headphones, Heads-up display, auto-climate control - all make for a comfortable and safe ride! Easily seats 7 and room for storage too! The second row moon roof is a great plus for making it feel spacious and roomy in the back too! It includes an electronic screen if you want to keep the sun and light out too! The sunroof up front is controlled entirely separate and can be opened entirely, tilted for airflow, or close the moon roof cover to keep out sun and light.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great looking, luxurious, extremely comfortable, reliable, multi-purpose, ability to take lots of gear or luggage, great audio system

Cons: Somewhat big for a family of 3

Excellent American Made Product — Acceleration times are hindered by the mass of the vehicle. Overall quality is excellent, have not had any issues. Ownership costs are low, except when paying for personal tax. Fun to drive factor is adequate for a crossover utility vehicle.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: utility

Cons: Drivers'  seat can get uncomfortable on long hauls

My Sweet Acadia — This is the most amazing cross over EVER! awesome ride, perfect amount of space and seating. features you can use! Priced right, but you get more than you pay for! So far I have 8k miles on it and its just like the day I got it. For only 30k dollars, its incredible.
