We purchased the Acadia fully loaded in August of '08 and now have almost 4,000 miles on it. We get an average of 17 mpg which is dissapointing considering that a good percentage of the driving is highway. However mpg has improved since we've had it. The quality of the intererior could be better - especially for a vehicle that has an MSRP over $45,000. Glove box on dash doesn't open like it should and there is no light in the larger glove box. The driver seat automatic setting controls on the drivers door panel seem to be an afterthought - a hole cut out of the panel exposes the three buttons...
The biggest complaint I have is the constant shifting of the transmission. When the vehicle is moving around 20 mph and you want to accelerate (slowly) you really have to press the gas peddle which unfortunately makes the car shift into a really low gear as if you are passing someone. Probably one of the issues affecting the mpg problem.
Overall we like the styling and fit/finish so far although I might be hearing some rattles - but it may also be the child seat. It does have lots of room and has a good amount of accessories.
