I have a house in Colorado I use just about every long weekend or vacation I have. After years of renting a car and paying their fees, I decided to buy one. The idiot in me decided to buy a car over the internet and not test drive it. Unfortunately, it was the XL7. It had decent reviews online, a great warranty, it was cheap, and looked pretty good. But after 6,000, my thoughts have changed. The engine struggles around 65mph, and is full on panting at 70mph. The altitude may play a roll in this, but not that much. The car is put together well, but everything is a hard, hollow plastic. I get the MPG they say of around 17-19 Highway. Best Bet: if you are looking at a new car, get an Acadia
The Steering Wheel is Nice, Simple Radio, Warranty, It's Spacious, Price, It's put together well, The Dual Exhaust Looks Cool, Regular Gasoline, Keys Unlock From Long Distance, No Problems So Far
Though I like the Steering Wheel-this car cannot turn! Spin the wheel 1.5 Times and it is maxed out, Everything is a hard plastic, seats are fake leather, it's slow, a pain to get in third row, lack or storage, roof rack is crap, Lights are not very bright
