Great family car! Plenty of space for the whole family plus gear. Even with the third row up, there is still plenty of room for strollers, backpacks, and any other gear you might need. Most third row vehicles only provide a few inches between the third row and back door. But not the Acadia
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.
I started to have problems with this vehicle after having it for 3 days. Air bag light keeps coming on, car has a vibration. There is a clicking noise when turning the steering wheel. Back seat a/c / blower went out already. Stereo volume goes up and down, it doesn't even get loud. I have only had this vehicle since may 2016 and it has been back and forth to the dealership. All items each time were fixed but continue to have the same problems. DON'T PURCHASE THIS VEHICLE!!!!
