Great car for a family without sacrificing storage space
2008 GMC AcadiaChelsi - Bryan, TX04/13/2015
I have two kids under two and this car is perfect for the two carseat life. The captains/bucket seats in the middle row are perfect for rear and front facing car seats and I can store all kiddie must-haves in the space between seats. One thing I was worried about was moving up from a MPV to a SUV but in this car I don't feel like I'm driving anything any bigger. When the third seat is flat I have more than enough room for luggage or groceries, and when it's up I can fit 2 more adults in my car easily
I fought every instinct in my body to purchase this Acadia. I had hoped my mother in law just got a "lemon" with her Acadia but I was wrong. I bought it because my wife and I both like the quad seats that it offers so the children would not have to climb over the second row to get to the third (yes I know the seats fold in the others but no kid will use them.) since I have bought this car I have discovered an oil leak on the front main seal, the sunroof cover "pops" open randomly while driving and the AC vent will not open and close the way it should. I should've spent the extra money and bought the TOYOTA 4Runner!!! Oh well, lesson learned
2012 GMC AcadiaMichael A - Easley, SC06/07/2016
This vehicle has room for (8). It is the perfect family vehicle. My son plays football--he is over 6 feet and 300 lbs--and we needed a vehicle with room for him, family and friends. Plus, we wanted awd, a movie player for our 10 year old and solid navigation for trips. Our vehicle has that and more. It rides like a dream, looks great, is well built, and handles fine in the snow and ice. We are constantly being told how nice our vehicle is by complete strangers. This adds to the fun of ownership. I have been told by several people that the smoothness of the ride is amazing for such a large vehicle. Before purchasing the Acadia/Denali, we test drove a Jeep, Lexus, Mercedes, Buick, Land Cruiser, and a few others. The GMC won.
