We are retired and bought this car for a comfortable ride when we travel. My husband is six foot three and has very long legs, so the roominess was really important. This car is such a pleasure to drive, and just the right size to afford plenty of room but not awkward to park or handle in traffic. Great car!

This vehicle is just what my wife and I wanted. A lot of space for passengers and cargo, three rows of seats (space for the bra kids), DVD player (also for the little ones), individual climate control - pretty much all the bells and whistles we wanted. Very smooth ride, classic comfort. Eats a bit of gas, but not overly thirsty. We're very happy with this SUV.
Good family car
2011 GMC AcadiaDavid Townsend - Cross City, FL12/10/2017
I am a family man- have 3 kids. It has the third row option. It seems that all of this model come with a V-6 which the fuel economy is found wanting, however it has the power to get up and moving rather quickly. I have a fwd and no trailer hitch (yet) however, I am sure it will pull a small trailer or U-haul if needed. When the passenger space is not used by my kids, all seats (with the exception of the front passenger seat) can be folded down for cargo. It also features dual Air conditioning. For a family man who isn't ready for the nickname "super-minivan" this crossover isn't a bad option for you.
