2012 GMC Acadia SLT-1 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Size, features, extras all were a perfect match for me and my family. We have 2 kids, now entering grade school, so the extra seat for carpool and their stuff was great, yet the car drives more like a minivan than a large SUV. Unfortunately, I've had the car for 3 months, the transmission seems to slip and jerk constantly and now, the most scary part - while accelerating from stop, the car sometimes takes 5 seconds to engage. This is 5 seconds for another car to T-Bone you in an intersection. My good wife dealt with it for several months, I experienced it myself this last week. Working with the dealer to return now.
Captains chairs, 3rd row seats plus additional storage. Size is comfortable for me and my wife to drive.
Some interior components seem cheap. Too much plastic on the floor in the back of the car.
