We just had a baby and with two dogs, needed more room for our frequent trips down to the Bay Area. The GMC is excellent as the quad seats allow my large elderly dog to access the back seat easily and there is enough room in the second row for him to jump up on the floor, instead of onto the seat like my previous vehicle. The front seats are very comfortable, the 2nd row seats are relatively comfortable, and we added a seating pad for the 3rd row seats. Some of the materials inside the vehicle are cheap plastic- the bottom of the 2nd row seats is cheap and breaks easily- also they do not slide back and forth without a little elbow grease. Quite a few of the buttons on the dashboard are also worn down, which I haven't ever had happen on any other vehicle. We also had to have the power liftgate motor replaced upon purchase. Besides that, it drives well and is very comfortable with lots of space. We have only had it for a week, but we are enjoying it quite a bit so far.
Love my Acadia

I truly am happy with every aspect of the vehicle. I would opt for a few more luxurious options of money allowed - like power lift gate and leather/heated seating. But those things are available. Only con for me has been expense of gas, luckily my commute to work is very short!
Great all around car!

The GMC Acadia was the perfect fit for us. We have 2 large dogs that travel with us often. All the seats lay flat for plenty of cargo room and room for our pups. We choose the AWD option because we drive in the mountains and snow a lot. So far, the car has been wonderful. The handling is amazing!
