I am looking now to buy another. Fuel economy 19.7 in town 24.3 on highway. Simply a pleasure to drive and not afraid to move 6/7 people. Have not had one problem with Acadia. Would suggest staying with front wheel drive after driving first winter, no traction problems and better mileage. Quiet ride and have to watch the speed as it likes to get down the highway very good responsiveness.
Handling on wet/ice covered/snow packed roads. First, second and third seats very comfortable for a 250 lb person. The auto rear hatch allowing you to walk up and put bags in back. Very happy with performance. Excellent braking, quality build
Back up camera, larger back up lights, did not get skylights and glad after all the ice this winter, get convenience group when ordering and 18" wheels for the better ride

I really like this SUV because of the size and special features. We did have the power steering pump replaced within the frist three months, Which wasn;t really a big deal. In the fourth month of ownership, this SUV became demon posessed. Brake light comes on with a very loud beeping that does not stop and the park assist light flashes that the park assist is off. Three trips to the dealership and they still can't fix this problem! The only way to stop this is to pull off the road, set and release the park brake. the plus side to this is that it only happens when it rains. four resets in one trip from NJ to NC. There is also water in the passenger floorboard when it rains.
Sunroofs, console features, Seats are comfortable for trips less than 2 hours! Overall size of the SUV is great! MPG is around 21 to 22, not to bad! Good overall SUV!
Chrome around AC vents in the front need to be redesigned, too bright and glares in bright sun. Lots of little quirks that need to be addressed. Seats need a little more cushion.

I bought this car in June of '07. I transport my own three kids to and from school every day and often take a few extra to sporting events, music lessons etc. The kids love the space, the lift gate, radio/AC controls. I love the way it drives. It looks and feels sporty. The extra gadgets/gauges are convieniently placed. The road noise is low. Long road trips are actually fun with this car.
Steering wheel controls, auto lift gate. Second row bucket seats, gadgets/gauges. I basically love every feature of this car!
I purchased my Acadia 3 mo. ago and love it. We drove a 2 day trip from Texas to NYC with 4 kids was a little cramped. Do wish it came standard with hitch and luggage bars. Most people travel and this would be helpful. Paint does tend to chip easier than my old Envoy XL but, overall I am very happy with my new car. Had to make emergency trip for medical reasons and must say we got up to 125mph and was smooth as could be and handles like a dream. If your thinking on buying jump on it. I love mine.
Heated washer fluid, rear backup sensors, OnStar is a must and of course heated seats. So, many options on this car.
Little more room in the back for groceries. Better paint job. Small led lights for the back instead of big lights other than that perfect. Did a woman with kids design this car?
After driving Volvos for the past 5 yrs, came back to GMC, worried about reliability, but the Volvo was also unreliable and expensive to repair, so here goes. Enjoying it so far. Opted for the 60/40 second row bench and am happy about that. Unless you are carrying a bunch of folks, the back seat goes unused anyway, so I either fold it or leave it up. The kids can't run between the seats either! Daughter is enjoying the DVD option and the rear controls are easy enough for a 4 year old to operate!
Drives like a much smaller car, DVD, satellite radio and OnStar, iPod connections (even the Mercedes had this optional...it's standard here), very roomy and easy for tall people to get in and out of, even in the back seats! Can't wait for a long trip in this one!
Dome light switch quit working about 1 week after purchase (on my husbands new 2008 GMC truck too. Switch came unplugged in the headlilner, but was a quick fix. More interior leather colors, and if we are to pay for leather, please make the whole seat leather, not a combination of materials.
