"I knew I needed the capability to run my family's life out of this car. Family of 4 (2 kiddos), work, school, activities, friends, vacations, 1 year of a driving-territory sales job, weekend travel to family, seats fold down to haul Craigslist furniture purchases, etc... there's nothing it can't do/hasn't done. My Acadia allows me to NOT drive a mini-van and allows me to NOT drive a big, clunky truck (Yukon, Suburban, etc.). I LOVE my 2nd row bucket seats that allows for easy access to 3rd row. With a big group, we can always ALL ride TOGETHER. Seats fold down effortlessly for big grocery trips and big items. It will be paid off soon, I'm almost at 100K miles with almost ZERO problems. I will con't to drive another year or so, then take my down payment to the dealership to pick myself up ANOTHER Acadia that will carry our family through the next season of life. Going to get a few bells and whistles this time- leather, sunroof, Bose! :) I LOVE MY ACADIA and can't imagine life without it!"
"Overall love the interior for smaller kids. We bought it 3 years ago with 4 children under 6 years old and it's easy for them to get in/out/buckled. Very comfortable driving, have the SLT so a few extras were convenient. I am looking at trading it in for the Denali. A few drawbacks with kids: any spills, dirt, snow ect. is difficult to clean tracks that the baucket seats are in. We don't slide the seat forward very often so not a huge deal, but I'm a clean freak. Cargo space with third row in use is not great but comparable to our previous Expedition. On the great side, cargo space without the 3rd row in use is amazing! Love that there are many things that will amazingly fit in the back especially height-wise."
"We have owned this vehicle since Feb and have logged 8K miles, so far, great. The city mileage could be better and after a trans re-flash, the shifting is much improved. Best first year vehicle I have ever owned. The styling is great and it is not a mini van! Only other issue is that the '07's did not have a back-up camera, solved in 08. A great alternative to a mini van, great job GM and GMC."
Pros: "Easy to drive.Reliable.Good on gas for its size"
Cons: "Other cars same price range have more features"

"When I was making the decision to buy a new car, this is the last one I tested. That was it. My husband and I both drove this car and knew immediately that this was "the one". We did not have to talk ourselves into it, or make compromises on features. This car is great for families, but is also very stylish, I like being seen in it. My grandkids ride in comfort, are entertained with their DVD's, and they think I'm cool for buying this car. Adults are equally pleased and commonly remark on the smooth ride. It is easy to drive, and handles well in all types of weather. It has plenty of power so I feel safe when having to make quick driving decisions. I am a bit displeased with the number of recalls on this vehicle. They have all been taken care of promptly, but I was very upset when they removed the heated windshield washer feature."
