I found the consumer reviews very helpful so I decided I should give my experience. I looked at Toyota Highlander(no 60/40 split 3rd row)and Acura MDX (2nd row of seats do not move adjust for back passagers). I kept coming back to the Buick. This crossover is so quiet, it is riding in your living room. We have already driven it on a long road trip and had no complaints. The dealership was wonderful to work with and gave us a great price.
XM, backup camera, quiet ride
Visibility is difficult without a backup camera so I would recommend it, 6 speed transmission does seem to "search" for gears but you get used to it and it is not distracting.
