My wife & I had always liked the look of the Acadia/Traverse/Enclave/Outlook siblings, and of the four we liked the GMC best. We took a short drive, and decided to buy this one. It has AWD, leather, and rear DVD (must-haves for our vehicle). HOWEVER, after living with this for a month or two, some glaring disappointments have surfaced. The six speed automatic cannot make up its mind on any road. It hunts for gears almost non-stop in light traffic on the highway. The 3.6L V6 (rated at 270+ hp) is always outclassed at stoplights as well as highway grades. Plus, the 24 mpg highway rating is nowhere near the 20.5 mpg observed highway. Couple these nuances with poor second and third row seating room, and I will strongly advise friends and family to stay away from the large GM crossover family.
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
My wife and I purchased our first GMC a little earlier this year. Used but it is still new even had the the new car smell inside. Only one other owner which was a car rental service. Everything checked out fine but the no accident or recall reports so we purchased the SUV. However, we experienced some very heavy rain in our area (22days of rain straight). We started getting eater flooding in the hatch back area. It was seeping through! Brand new off the lot not soon after there was leakage! No body could figure out why. I have come to the conclusion that it was water seals on top of the SUV. Did research prior and found out that GMC has a issues with water leakage in various parts of there vehicles. Took a chance anyway & fell victim
