Purchased As New
We purchased the the GMC Acadia about 6 months ago (base model with no extras) I LOVE IT.
Having 3 kids under 5 yrs old fitting 3 carseats was a big deal. We had mangaged to fit all 3 into the backseat of our 2003 VW Jetta but had to use skinnier carseats and modify the seat bottom with plywood.... needless to say not the safest solution.
Needing a bigger vehicle we found that the Acadia was the only mid-sized SUV that could fit us. We are now able to fit 2 toddler sized britax carseats in the third row, a graco convertable in the middle row and still flip down the other side of the middle row providing great access to the back seats and a spot to sit inside the vehicle to get everyone buckled-up. we can also flip it up and fit two more adults having a total of 4 adults and 3 kids in carseats. I could not be happier.
Balancing space with size and fuel economy is tough and the Acadia nailed it.
The it drives smooth and has plenty of muscle but also isn't bad on gas.
I've also used to move stuff like 1,200 lbs of concrete, renting a rototiller, 4'x8' sheets of plywood and sheetrock... The way the seats all flip down works nicely.
Lastly a nice supprise and delight thing was OnStar... I figured it was just a waste for us.. "hey i've got mapquest and a cell phone..."
But realizing that it is satilight based and works where there are no cell towers was a true value add plus being able to talk to a real person and have them find stuff and download the directions on the fly (I'm a country boy in the middle of NYC at 11pm and need coffee before the big trip home where's starbucks? Onstar got me there)... The Acadia came with 1 year free but we may plan to keep it...
I highly recommend the GMC Acadia! A+++
