2009 GMC Acadia

We were looking for a vehicle capable of taking trips with four adults, more room than our Subaru Outback and at a reasonable price. The 2009 Acadia with less than 40K miles fit the bill as it was within our budgit, bigger, had third row rear seat and individual seats in the front and second row. This makes for individual comfort on trips. With the 3rd row seat folded down, there is a large cargo area. Cargo capacity with 3rd row up is reduced but still enough for several suitcases. Very roomy interior. The rear A/C system gives back seat passangers comfort control. My wife likes the higher seaating position, although you do feel like you are climbing into a pick-up truck when entering. Controls are easy to reach and operate. Six speed auto trans is very smooth and offers some manual control in manual mode. 3.5 V6 has plenty of power (rated @ 288 hp.) for intended use Ride is firm but not harsh. Overall, it will be a pleasure on trips, especially with 4 adults, which was the intended purpose. Downside: Low gas mileage, averaging about 16 around town. Haven't got to track highway milage yet. The Acadia weighs about 5000 lb. It takes fuel to get that much mass rolling from a stop. It has the typical GM "driver isolation" feel. Not a lot of stearing feedback. Lots of torque steer under hard acceleration. Wheels easily break loose when starting up from stop on wet roads (2 wheel drive model) but this could be the fault of the tires, 39K miles on OEM tires. Slight lag in throtle response (common to new electronically controlled vehicles). Auto door locks that lock all doors when you shift out of park.

hard to work on, fun to drive.

too many little things that need to be repaired for a car with less than 100K/6yrs old. My Toyota Matrix is 11 yrs old and all I've done is change the oil, tires and put gas in it. I've had the 2009 Acadia 6 months and see that the DVD player is "picky" about what it plays, the rear hatch won't stay open without propping it up with a stick, and I just fixed a massive hole in the air conditioner line that was cause by 2 lines vibrating/rattling on each other until a hole was gauged. The more I work on this car, the more I see evidence of it being worked on by other people as well, like little plastic rivets missing here, a new bolt and nut there, etc. Thank goodness for YouTube and all the mechanics posting how to work on Acadias!

Great car, but beware of its size

We love this car, but I highly recommend equipping blind-spot sensors or purchasing blind-spot mirrors. Once you throw a couple baby-seats in this thing, it is VERY difficult to check your blind-spots before changing lanes. That aside, it's a great car. Very roomy and comfortable, and it doesn't look bad either.
