I love my ride but when I got it home and after driving it a week or two, there are rattles from the left front windshield molding area and the mid right side. When the sound system is off, I can definitely hear the rattles. I stuck a small pience of weather stripping between the dash and the windshield left molding and it stopped the rattle but it doesn't look real good. Other than these minor things...I love it.
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".
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

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.
