Reviews for 2008 GMC Acadia
We absolutely LOVE our 2008 Acadia! Handles great on the road. Love the heated seats. Very sharp looking. Our only complaint is that people keep stopping us and ask us if we like our Acadia because they are thinking about buying one. We tell them to stop thinking about it and go ahead and buy one.
Love my Acadia
I have wanted an Acadia for years. I had a Tahoe for 7 years and it did well for my family but I wanted something with more passenger room and a narrower wheel base, the Tahoe was just too big. The Acadia fit all my needs and looks great. We shopped for many weeks and tried many different models and brands until we decided that the Acadia was what we needed. While we could have spent less on the Traverse, I didn't like the styling; and The Mazda CX-9 was just not comfortable; the other options didn't have the passenger space and luxury options I was looking for. The Acadia fit all my requirements. Going from a V8 to a V6 has been a big adjustment for me, I am still wanting more power, but I am sure that as time goes on i will get used to it. With winter approaching I will see how it is to transition from 4WD to FWD, I did not get the AWD option, we have 4WD truck, so we felt that AWD was not needed. The navigation is not very user friendly, you can only use controls when the vehicle is not moving. I understand that this is a safety feature, but maybe if it was updated so that if there was someone in the passenger seat then the controls could be used, that would be better. The car is smart enough to know to turn the airbag on when someone is in the passenger seat, so this is not an unrealistic request. All in all, I highly recommend the Acadia for the family looking for comfort, luxury and passenger space.
Great car for a family without sacrificing storage space
I have two kids under two and this car is perfect for the two carseat life. The captains/bucket seats in the middle row are perfect for rear and front facing car seats and I can store all kiddie must-haves in the space between seats. One thing I was worried about was moving up from a MPV to a SUV but in this car I don't feel like I'm driving anything any bigger. When the third seat is flat I have more than enough room for luggage or groceries, and when it's up I can fit 2 more adults in my car easily
