We've had this car for about a year and a half. It's been a very reliable vehicle. Our only trouble with it has been at 60,000 miles the power steering pump went out and we developed a knock in the steering which had us replacing rack and pinion. I don't believe this should be a problem with a vehicle with less than 100K on it, but it was a fleet vehicle before we bought it. I'm not a pro, but I choose to give the vehicle the benefit of the doubt and say that maybe it wasn't cared for as it should have been since it belonged to a fleet. Other than that, the car has been a dream to drive. We've taken it on trips half way across the US, and it's very comfortable. As long as we have no more major problems, I will buy another.
Great Styling. Disappointing Quality.
2007 GMC AcadiaFred Miller - Baltimore, MD02/07/2017
We loved the styling of the Acadia since it first came out in 2007. It is a very sharp looking vehicle, inside and out. However, GMC has failed to provide what I consider acceptable quality parts and craftsmanship. If you really love this vehicle, do some research before you commit. Don't be blinded by the styling beauty. Take heed of the criticism on the vehicle's engine, transmission, electrical components, etc. We have had our transmission replaced; the new one is failing.
Running out of room so here's the failures:
- Driver Door Hinge
- Left Rear Passenger Door Hinge
- Rear Lift Gate
- Both Read Door Lock Actuators
- Cruise Control
YouTube: "Acadia Headlight Replacement", then do "Battery".
Bad car car out of the lot
2015 GMC AcadiaKevin Rodriguez - Fort Worth, TX09/13/2015
My wife and I purchased our first GMC a little earlier this year. Used but it is still new even had the the new car smell inside. Only one other owner which was a car rental service. Everything checked out fine but the no accident or recall reports so we purchased the SUV.
However, we experienced some very heavy rain in our area (22days of rain straight). We started getting eater flooding in the hatch back area. It was seeping through! Brand new off the lot not soon after there was leakage! No body could figure out why. I have come to the conclusion that it was water seals on top of the SUV. Did research prior and found out that GMC has a issues with water leakage in various parts of there vehicles. Took a chance anyway & fell victim
