I fought every instinct in my body to purchase this Acadia. I had hoped my mother in law just got a "lemon" with her Acadia but I was wrong. I bought it because my wife and I both like the quad seats that it offers so the children would not have to climb over the second row to get to the third (yes I know the seats fold in the others but no kid will use them.) since I have bought this car I have discovered an oil leak on the front main seal, the sunroof cover "pops" open randomly while driving and the AC vent will not open and close the way it should. I should've spent the extra money and bought the TOYOTA 4Runner!!! Oh well, lesson learned
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!
Perfect car to haul my kids around.
2011 GMC AcadiaAnonymous - Omaha, NE01/08/2015
It has the captain seats for the 2nd row so my older kids can get to the back seat and I can put the car seats in the front two so they don't have to move or climb over the 2nd row.
Took it on a 8 hour road trip with me, my husband, and 3 kids and it was very comfortable. The DVD player was a plus, not to mention it has a regular plug in so my husband could plug in the computer and work along the way. So far so good.
