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
Love my car!

It feels secure and it's a comfortable ride. I love the middle captain's chairs because it makes the 3rd row easily accessible and it gives the middle row riders more rooms to relax. The leg room can be a little tight if you have a tall driver, but it's not terrible. Love the heated seats!
Comfortable / Sturdy Ride
2014 GMC AcadiaRobert Schlick - Fort Mill, SC07/20/2017
This Denali was designed with passengers in mind. It is easy to get in/out of,
the rear seats are comfortable along with good leg room. The car has a comfortable ride and with the 3rd row collapsed it has a lot of cargo space. The car also has a surprisingly tight turning radius and I was also impressed with the "pep" provided by its six (6) cylinder engine.
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.
Some of the best compact SUVs today are efficient, with good power and handy features like a turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive, and even third-row seats. Check out this top 10 list, based on CarMax sales data from January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.
