Reviews for 2009 GMC Acadia
Spacious and Comfortable
We just had a baby and with two dogs, needed more room for our frequent trips down to the Bay Area. The GMC is excellent as the quad seats allow my large elderly dog to access the back seat easily and there is enough room in the second row for him to jump up on the floor, instead of onto the seat like my previous vehicle. The front seats are very comfortable, the 2nd row seats are relatively comfortable, and we added a seating pad for the 3rd row seats. Some of the materials inside the vehicle are cheap plastic- the bottom of the 2nd row seats is cheap and breaks easily- also they do not slide back and forth without a little elbow grease. Quite a few of the buttons on the dashboard are also worn down, which I haven't ever had happen on any other vehicle. We also had to have the power liftgate motor replaced upon purchase. Besides that, it drives well and is very comfortable with lots of space. We have only had it for a week, but we are enjoying it quite a bit so far.
2009 GMC Acadia
We were looking for a vehicle capable of taking trips with four adults, more room than our Subaru Outback and at a reasonable price. The 2009 Acadia with less than 40K miles fit the bill as it was within our budgit, bigger, had third row rear seat and individual seats in the front and second row. This makes for individual comfort on trips. With the 3rd row seat folded down, there is a large cargo area. Cargo capacity with 3rd row up is reduced but still enough for several suitcases. Very roomy interior. The rear A/C system gives back seat passangers comfort control. My wife likes the higher seaating position, although you do feel like you are climbing into a pick-up truck when entering. Controls are easy to reach and operate. Six speed auto trans is very smooth and offers some manual control in manual mode. 3.5 V6 has plenty of power (rated @ 288 hp.) for intended use Ride is firm but not harsh. Overall, it will be a pleasure on trips, especially with 4 adults, which was the intended purpose. Downside: Low gas mileage, averaging about 16 around town. Haven't got to track highway milage yet. The Acadia weighs about 5000 lb. It takes fuel to get that much mass rolling from a stop. It has the typical GM "driver isolation" feel. Not a lot of stearing feedback. Lots of torque steer under hard acceleration. Wheels easily break loose when starting up from stop on wet roads (2 wheel drive model) but this could be the fault of the tires, 39K miles on OEM tires. Slight lag in throtle response (common to new electronically controlled vehicles). Auto door locks that lock all doors when you shift out of park.
2009 gmc acadia review
This car is great! It is very spacious. There is literally nothing we don't love about this car, except that the gas mileage is poor....avg about 17mpg. We are willing to put up with that though, due to the fact that the car is so large and has been such an asset when traveling, or purchasing larger items. I would buy this car over and over again. Fantastic:)
