2007 GMC Acadia SLT-2 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Love the body style and interior room. Major problems with transmission, catalytic converter and timing chains. Multiple trips to dealerships and after warranty expired, all of the above did too.GM does not stand behind it's products. Too late for us, but read all of the transmission problems noted. Do not purchase.


Favorite Features

Body style and interior room is great


Suggested Improvements

working transmissions, catalytic converters, and timing chains. Should have already been a recall on transmissions. 100s of pages of complaints on web ignored by manufacturer

2007 GMC Acadia SLT-2 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The GMC Acadia is an engineering nightmare. The transmission has known issues that GM will not back up when it goes bad. The interior has these large holes in the floor that the seat should slide on but just end up filled with junk. A headlight out on this vehicle is an expensive trip to the dealer because it is not something an owner can change. Do not buy this vehicle or GM for that matter if this is how the stand behind their cars.


Favorite Features

Exterior Look.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission is junk. Sound system is junk. Headlights are junk. AC system is junk.

Review

We purchased an SLT2 FWD in April 2007. We have 47,000 miles on the vehicle. We did experience a water pump issue that was covered under the 100K mileage warranty. Other than that, the Acadia has been trouble free. We just returned from a 2,100 mile trip to Colorado from California and back through the Nevada and Utah deserts where the temperature was 105 degrees. The Acadia was great. I realize some owners have experienced issues that I'm sure GM is attempting to address. This vehicle is built by Americans for Americans as well as others. I only wish I'd ordered AWD and a tow package (for bikes). Our mileage was 18.52 mpg matching exactly what the DIC indicated. Buy and Acadia


Favorite Features

Our favorite features are the room. The middle and rear seats fold flat which is great for hauling. The automatic rear doors is wide enough to take a four foot sheet of plywood (the Enclave can't). The ride and styling feel like the vehicle is larger. The audio system is wonderful and the 120 volt inverter allows you to plug in a computer and, if you have a portable WiFi hot spot (like Verizon MiFi) you can hook to the internet along the way.


Suggested Improvements

Non reflective trim around the air conditioning vents and better rear side and rear window visibility. The transmission shift pattern is odd. I noticed going up moderate grades the RPM is over 5K, which sounds and feels like a strain

Review

I have a 2007 acadia with 66,900 miles and I had to replace waterpump at 50,000 miles and now the engine light has come on. I took it to the dealer and they said that the engine will need to be removed do to a bad camshaft. It seems to be a big issue with the 3.6 engine just google camshaft-timing chain problems.

Review

I loved this vehicle on sight. It drives like a dream and is very comfortable on long trips. Fuel economy is quite adequate for it's size. However, in the 3 1/2 years I have owned this vehicle, it has been in the shop 14 times! Problems have been mostly electrical,(running lights simply quit working, car wouldn't start, computer chip issues) but the sunroof also leaked due to a poor factory-designed drainage system. I would not in good conscience recommend this vehicle to anyone.


Favorite Features

Turning radius, seating comfort, cargo space, foul weather handling


Suggested Improvements

Electrical issues need to be addressed; better fuel economy
