We've only had the vehicle for a few weeks now but we're loving it. We checked out the Pilot, Pathfinder and Edge. The pilot had the 2nd row leg room but few options at our price. The other 2 didn't have the 2nd row leg room. We need something that tows a 3500 lb pop up trailer and this does that without a problem. I can even see over trailer with rear view mirror. Took some time to get the hang of moving the 2nd row seat to get into the 3rd row. Once you get it it's easy.
Sporty look. Power when needed. 2nd row roominess for tall people.
More or better color options. Always better gas mileage. Just coming from a mini van rear storage. Fix forward roll in reverse.
This is our 4th GMC and first Acadia. So far I am very impressed with the vehicle. While the mileage is not great, you have to consider what you are getting and giving up in mileage. Performance is good for the v6. Interior space is outstanding compared to competitive models while it doesn't feel like a big ship when driving.
Interior space; seating; 3rd row folding flat; great ride; quite interior when driving; exterior design; back up camera.
excessive rolling when put in park; better mileage would be great, but not a show-stopper.
About 3,500 miles in 3 months on my AWD SLT 1 and am thus far quite happy with the purchase. Am getting just over the EPA rated gas mileage (mostly city driving) but mileage goes down quickly if running stop & go errands. Still, this is a large vehicle that gets far better mileage than many Crossovers and SUVs of similar size. Great interior design with exception of the complaint in suggested improvements. Biggest complaint is the shifting. Prior year models had issues, so 2010 was reprogrammed. It still needs improvement as it hunts at slow speeds. Engine braking is very noticeable when downshifting at slow speed. My prior GM vehicle did not have this issue.
Love the cargo space and fold flat rear seats! Well-designed storage compartments. Decent leg room in back, including 3rd row, even for a tall guy like me. Nice interior and exterior styling. Decent gas mileage for a large AWD vehicle.
Shiny chrome on dash vents reflects sunlight & can be distracting. Would be better if this was brushed nickel/steel finish. Transmission shifting still needs some work. Why no instant gas mileage monitor on the trip computer? Roof rack cross rails are sold separately. Front skirt a bit low.
So far so good very comfortable. Why would they build a car that rolls forward on a hill when car is In reverse? I noticed today vehicle does not roll free it is very noticeable then I read a posted review here that mentions the same observation.
I got the top of the line SLT2 and I'm very satisfied with it. I got 3500 miles on it.
