We have driven Japanese vehicles for the last 15 years, we have a 2010 pilot right now as the wife's car, and they have all been stellar.
I have been admiring the Acadia for some time.
We really like the way that it drives and looks.
The build quality seems on pr with the Hondas, the material quality is a step below the pilot.
We like the smooth ride and quietness of it. The pilot is louder by far.
The space is also very nice.
We have had it one month and 1500 miles, so time will tell on the reliability front.
The only real gripe I have so far is the transmission behaves oddly in 6th gear at a light cruise.
Most other 6 speed AT s I have driven seem to have some quirks as well.
Power and quiet highway ride
Usb port should be standard and we got the tow package.
The plastic snap on cover consisting of .85 cents worth of plastic shouldn't be an extra 50 bucks thru the dealer when the tow package was 625 including the spare tire!
