Reviews for 2012 GMC Acadia
First GMC we've owned, I'd heard they're quite strongly built. So far I'd agree, this Acadia is mechanically solid. For being as large as it is, its quite nimble. Two weeks after purchasing it we had our first emergency situation, driver in front of us had to avoid an "invisible" ladder at freeway speed. While he jammed on the brakes and swerved erratically nearly getting his pickup sideways on two wheels, our Acadia handled the situation with no problem,no excessive pitch or roll, very solid. The power plant is a little lacking at times and if you use more than 1/4 throttle you'll never see advertised mileage. The 6 speed transmission shifts smoothly, nearly impossible to feel at times. Cabin noise is very low, even at freeway speed. The Bose sound system is good, though being an audiophile I really expected more from Bose. Also the audio systems USB port will slow charge your devices, but it only works with Apple devices or flash drive type devices for music play. You can use internet radio or the like with your Apple devices, not Android. Also, Bluetooth only has phone function, sadly not audio pairing for music. The triple zone climate control is cute, but dysfunctional. Subtle differences in temp are easy to control, but more than a few degrees and the system begins fighting for control over zone temp settings. The seating and accommodations are very nice, recent 2,000 mile road trip tested that and passed with flying colors. Plenty of cup holders and places to store your goods. I'm 6'4" and sitting anywhere was comfortable, though the 3rd row I wouldn't sit there for extended trips. Overall cargo capacity is excellent. One area I wasn't impressed with was the interior plastic trim as its easily removed or broken. Also, though the seats are said to be leather they feel plastic, almost vinyl. All in all I'm very pleased with this car.
Love My Acadia!!
A dream to drive. Very comfortable and good visibility with the adjustable seat and steering wheel. Back up camera already paid for itself. It stopped me from backing up when pedestrians were walking by.
One of the things I have found I don't like is how difficult it is to connect the seatbelt in the driver's seat. The front passenger seat is also a tight fit for connecting the belt but not quite as tight as the driver's seatbelt. This is something they could definitely change to improve. Also, the console where the cupholders are in front of, if not slid back isn't very usesful for putting stuff in, and if you slide it all the way back, it makes the center seat for leg room less.
