I went from a 2012 Camry to this 2013 Acadia. It works for me since I have 3 small children. With the split-bench 2nd row, my 5-year-old can get in and buckle himself. It's very good if I need extra cargo space with letting part of the 3rd row down. But I don't like the car seat latch for the 3rd row. It's in the middle of the seat, which means I have to rigid my 5-year-old's high-back booster seat. But other than that it works for me, for now!
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".
I purchased a 2015 GMC Acadia Denali (one owner prior to me owned it for 15 months) and the air conditioning went out two weeks after purchase. After repaired, it went out again two weeks later. A GMC dealership replaced the entire unit! Also, the weather stripping on top of the vehicle detaches after each car wash and flaps independently unless I manually press it securely in position. A GMC dealership informed me this is something that happens and provided no solution to make it more secure. The quality of the vehicle is not Denali (in other words, top of the line).

Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
