We were looking for a car that the whole family of six could ride comfortably, and stop having to take two cars or lease a car to go someplace. This GMC fits the bill. Wish it had a little more storage for kids, but we can manage.
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".
I purchased a 2015 GMC Acadia Denali (one owner prior to me owned it for 15 months) and the air conditioning went out two weeks after purchase. After repaired, it went out again two weeks later. A GMC dealership replaced the entire unit! Also, the weather stripping on top of the vehicle detaches after each car wash and flaps independently unless I manually press it securely in position. A GMC dealership informed me this is something that happens and provided no solution to make it more secure. The quality of the vehicle is not Denali (in other words, top of the line).
For those in the market for a compact hatchback, the Chevrolet Spark is a top contender. With sleek styling and easy maneuverability, the Chevrolet Spark packs a lot into a small package. Check out our review of the Chevrolet Spark to learn more.
