Let me start by saying this is my second Acadia. I LOVED the car that much that I went and bought another one. I currently own a 2010 GMC ACADIA WITH 85000 miles on it. I have always kept up on regular maintenance when needed. Recently my check engine light came on and would go off. So I took it to GMC and the code they came up with was P0008. I was told that more than likely it is a TIMING CHAIN? I said okay, is this covered up the Power Train Warrenty? No.. your 5 year mark was up last April. I was then informed the 2008, 2009 models have had these issues and GMC covered them but decided not to cover the 2010's. I asked how much is this going to cost me? He replied and said around $4,000. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Timing chain stretched. Leaks all over the place. Steering needs to be fixed. Back window won't go down . Air conditioner problems among many other problems. I would never buy GMC again!! Not under warranty any longer only 80000 miles in the car and the repairs will cost me 7000-8000$. I do not recommend !!

Completely unreliable and poorly designed.

After years of import ownership, we proudly decided to try American one more time. Detroit was back, everyone said. Fulfilling our patriotic duty, we purchased our 2010 Acadia used about 2-1/2 years ago for my wife. First, what sold us: REAR SEATS: No other SUV in its class made good use of space in the back. The availability of a 3rd row, 2nd-row bucket seats, and the easy, one-handed maneuverability of those seats was one of the biggest selling points to us (we had a kid on the way). It's a mid-size SUV that allocates space as if it's a large SUV or minivan. GENERAL STYLING/COMFORT: At a glance, and during a test drive, the look and feel of the vehicle struck us. It doesn't drive like a truck. It's a smooth, comfortable ride. And it's sharp. Why we'll never buy American again: UNRELIABILITY: I cannot overstate how a) unreliable the Acadia is, and b) how difficult and expensive it is to repair. It was engineered in such a way that routine maintenance is not at all routine, and minor to moderate repairs are major. For example, if you need to replace a headlamp (a 20-minute job on most vehicles), you must loosen the wheel well cover, the bumper cover, and the grill and surrounding trim before you can even access the headlamp. That's dozens of bolts that must be removed or loosened just to change a bulb. A peristent A/C leak plagued our vehicle for two summers until it was determined the coil needed to be replaced. A moderate repair on most vehicles, this one cost us about $1600 and two days in the shop (the coil inexplicably must be accessed by removing the dashboard). We've also had endless problems with the front suspension and linkages. The Acadia is in the shop every 2-3 months, on average, for problems big and small not counting routine maintenance like oil changes. For comparison, my German-made vehicle is in the shop 1-2 times A YEAR. We spend many hundreds (if not thousands) more maintaining the Acadia than our other car. The conventional wisdom that American cars are cheaper to maintain no longer applies. And then there are the recall notices stuffing our mailbox. But you already knew about those. In short, Detroit is not back.

Cannot comment or add to my original review, so I'm adding another one. I posted my review in October, 3 days after we got it back with a rebuilt engine, the motor was losing oil, bear in mind there was never an oil light, but we checked the oil every other day, we took a 2 hour trip, then had to drive another hour to help a friend, apparently that was just too much for the engine, in that time it had used up the oil and simply died on a random country road. Spun a bearing. Second motor in 6 months. No one will rebuild or sell this motor because they can't warranty it, it's such poor quality. I'd like to add that the traverse, escalade, Acadia, and enclave all have this motor. I won't be buying any of them either. When we get another motor in this car we will be taking it directly from the mechanic to be traded in. I'll have at least 6 grand added to the cost of a new vehicle, if I get the average trade in value for this hunk of junk.

I searched for an suv to fit our family, looked at 14 different models, Acadia had it all. However, a week after I bought mine, one owner used, 108k miles, the alternator went out at $300 bucks. Two days later, it left us stranded when the timing chain guide broke, another $1800 and a month at the shop. I got it back and drove it 2 months before the engine blew because oil was not getting to the top of the engine. Had to borrow $4k, 5 months in the shop, got it back a week ago and currently have a check engine light, we are 4 hours from home. In addition to a recurring tire pressure Guage light, stabilitrack, and abs lights. I'm beyond upside down in this ridiculous thing. And is not at all dependable. These are just the big things, the DVD player quit 3 days ago, among other little things. Do not buy this car.

Don't buy this car! I will say I love the look of the crossover and the capacity as we are a very active family. It is roomie and can fit a a lot of everything and that is where my love ends. I was just quoted over $5600 in repairs! I have had numerous repairs, water pump, airbags, seat belt were the only items covered under recalls. I now have my A/C out, steering rack gear leaking, timing cover gasket and rear main seal all needing repair and the vehicle is 5 years old! Name me one Toyota, Honda or Nissan that would need that much work 5 years? My VW didn't even need that much in 15 years! Customer care is a joke. They hook you up with your dealer that you have already become intimate with because you are ALWAYS there. Nothing else. I think the foreign cars to learn from the cargo design of the Acadia and they would have a best seller. I know that I would buy it. As for GMC, General Motors and buying American...my family can't afford a substandard product and therefore will never purchase again. I tried...

I bought this Acadia new off the dealer's lot at the end of 2010 and thought I got a great deal. It now has 70K miles. Between recalls and service bulletins it's been in the shop close to 15 times. Since December alone, it's been in 5 times. First, for a Service Bulletin to replace a timing chain, then every two weeks since for some other trouble code or fault. GM should be ashamed to have their logo on this car. I've asked for a full refund due to the failure of the engineering not living up to the "Professional Grade" motto, but been laughed at. I've been a GM fan for 40 years and am now selling everything GM I won because GM has failed to make this right. Never again.

I purchased used 8/2013. 25,000 miles. We have had two recalls and one power steering pump failure notice. My steering felt like manual steering like the gmc letter described. Dealership and gmc agreed that my power steering boot tips broke and all power steering fluid leaked which caused my pump to seized. They didn't pay for my repairs. Lastly my driver side power window doesn't work and dealership technician told us the motor sometimes jams and to slam the door but not to hard to fix the problem and it works to my disbelief. I regret buying this car and hate all the problems and money it has cost during my 14 month of owning. I have 50,000 miles.

Biggest car mistake of my life!

I bought a 2010 Acadia for my wife. It had 56,000 miles on it when purchased. Could have bought a Mercedes SUV for the price. The problems I've had with it have been unbelievable! Windshield leak damaged radio and A/C fan (window apparently always leaked), Power steering failed TWICE in 10k mi. $1600 to replace a power steering pump! A/C failed due to hose rubbing against chassis. Transmission shift issues. Brake issues. It gets 14 MPG (same as my old 6.0 liter Yukon XL), you need a mirror to see the fuses, and in order to replace a headlight bulb, you need to remove the inner fender (wheel well) skirt! Awful, Awful engineering design. Don't do it! Seriously, don't!

I do love my Acadia however just recently I had to move to Guam (military). Before I left I called my dealer & asked if my Acadias extended warranty was going to be good. They said yes & have a safe move. Since then my acadia has been having powersteering issues. I called the dealer & they didn't even bother calling the company to see if they would honor the warranty even though guam is a us territory. They haven't called me to see if they could do anything. Basically they took my extended warranty & ran with it. Now I'm going to have to pay out of pocket because GM hasn't come out with a recall even though lots of customers have been having the same issue. I won't purchase another GMC

Initially issues started out as minimal: back up camera malfunctioned. On day scheduled to be replaced sat in the waiting room for two hours to be told didnt have part; paint on hood started bubbling up b/c of rust. Fixed it no problem/complaint; Issue with brakes, waited over two hours (with infant) to be told they had to keep it; Service airbag light has been on 2x in last month. On 2nd attempt ordered part, but didn’t tell me without being questioned. At 35979 had full service check and told car was in full working order. At 36102 car seems to continue to run after key is out of ignition.

Unfortunately, one week after purchasing my GMC Acadia SLTII, one of the tires blew out and had to be replaced. It has gotten no better. This car gets the worse gas mileage of any vehicle I have ever owned. It gets less than 14 mpg, and is costing me an arm and a leg. The transmission constantly slips, and it has been in the shop for a broken water pump, non-cooling air conditioner and problems with the DVD player. The dealer has been very helpful upon each instance, however, I am sure they are getting tired of having to get me rental cars regularly since the car, still under warranty, is in the shop all of the time. I can't wait to get rid of this car, and will never buy GMC again.

I've owned two Acadias now. A 2008 and a 2010. The 2008 was nice but I did not like the drive train. The 2010 is flat out amazing in terms of being in the right gear under stressful conditions. In a word, the vehicle is snappy. My wife and I absolutely love it. I recently drove an AWD Cadalliac SRX for a week in Michigan and while it was nice, the drive train was like my 2008 Acadia... slow to respond to throttle inputs. Really frustrating when you are in a SITUATION that requires immediate attention. Our 2010 Acadia would smoke the 2010 SRX in drivability tests. Our MPG is 18-20 depending on our driving mix. We've had it for 6 months.

We bought this vehicle in February after my Jeep (which I also loved) finally died. I didn't want another Jeep because they made the cab smaller. I went to look at the Terrain and fell in love with this vehicle. It handles well, looks great and nothing beats it in the snow. We got the AWD. On a day when they should have closed schools due to a storm they didn't. I had to pick up my daughter and was going to have my hubby get her as I really don't like driving in the snow. My Acadia handled beautifully, never went off the road and I felt totally safe. This is the first time I wasn't afraid to drive in the snow and I have owned 6 vehicles. If you have kids and want to be safe,buy one.

Loving it so far!

When looking for a new vehicle for my new wife, we had a few requirements. 3 rows, towing capacity around 5000 lbs, and just good overall design and style. We looked at many different vehicles from all manufacturers, including 2 row suv's early in our search, and decided on the Acadia, and we are glad we did. The ride is incredible, it is very quiet. The fuel economy is good for a vehicle of this size powered by a small V6. When driving easy, mileage is very good. When driving aggressively, the mileage can drop quickly, and that's where a lot of people have problems. Visibility is good, unless the rear entertainment screen is down. Sunroofs are awesome. Bose sound could be better.

This vehicle is the best in its class. The power, handling, and comfort are top notch for such a large vehicle. I always get 20 mpg for mixed driving, and as high as 22+ for highway. Has anyone owned a vehicle that gets its rated MPG or better? Don't bother with the stupid reviews that people don't like it for access; didn't they try it at the dealer? If it hasn't been reliable, take it out on the dealer that's supposed to be fixing it. GM has the best buy back program around. Some people just like to complain. This is one of the most solid, best performing vehicles on the road, and it deserves a good long look.

Love the interior and exterior design. Plenty of room for 6 adults on long road trips. Can fit 8 people on moderate length trips. Smooth ride w/very good handling on twisty roads. Lots of creature comforts. Very quiet interior. Needed easy access 3rd row with room for adults, so no Q7, MDX, X5, Highlander, CX9, XC90, Touareg, Tribeca, RX350 Came down to the Acadia and Pilot Honda Pilot's handling was less precise, had more body roll, and much more road noise. Access to third row was more difficult in the Pilot as tested by my 70+ yr old dad. Mileage, Best: 21.5 mpg(hilly highway driving) Worst:16 mpg (mostly city) 7k miles, only issue has been with cord to get the middle seat to lie flat.

Experience has not been good. Gas mileage is low. About 5-7 mpg less than bragged about. Dealer said that it is within range. Other brands have not lied as much as GM has. I drive for mileage, all it does is get worse. Access for one who runs around with disabled veterans plates is terrible. I would not recommend the Acadia to anyone who is disabled. God help us if this is considered to be a good product.

We've only had the vehicle for a few weeks now but we're loving it. We checked out the Pilot, Pathfinder and Edge. The pilot had the 2nd row leg room but few options at our price. The other 2 didn't have the 2nd row leg room. We need something that tows a 3500 lb pop up trailer and this does that without a problem. I can even see over trailer with rear view mirror. Took some time to get the hang of moving the 2nd row seat to get into the 3rd row. Once you get it it's easy.

This is our 4th GMC and first Acadia. So far I am very impressed with the vehicle. While the mileage is not great, you have to consider what you are getting and giving up in mileage. Performance is good for the v6. Interior space is outstanding compared to competitive models while it doesn't feel like a big ship when driving.

About 3,500 miles in 3 months on my AWD SLT 1 and am thus far quite happy with the purchase. Am getting just over the EPA rated gas mileage (mostly city driving) but mileage goes down quickly if running stop & go errands. Still, this is a large vehicle that gets far better mileage than many Crossovers and SUVs of similar size. Great interior design with exception of the complaint in suggested improvements. Biggest complaint is the shifting. Prior year models had issues, so 2010 was reprogrammed. It still needs improvement as it hunts at slow speeds. Engine braking is very noticeable when downshifting at slow speed. My prior GM vehicle did not have this issue.

I've had this car for 4 months and 3500 miles. So far everything is just outstanding. The power, the handling,the comfort and -let's not forget- it's also a looker on red. I was so ready to buy the new Sienna and then my wife asked me to also test drive the Acadia. We were immediately hooked. Features like the navigation with Onstar, traffic,DVD, heated memory seats, dual moonroof, remote starter, etc. just make me feel like I'm on a spaceship. It has completely changed my mind about American cars. Awesome job GM! PD: Why do so many praise minivans and crossovers that have such a low ground clearance that they hit the front bumper on everything? Just check a loaded Odyssey or Flex.

I have read several reviews related to the vehicle rolling while in gear and this seems to be an issue with many reviewers. I grew up driving a stick, so I can deal with it, but it doesn't seem right that an automatic should roll free while in gear, even on a slight incline. The vehicle also rolls forward or backward up to 12 inches when removing your foot from the brake after putting the vehicle in park when on an incline. The driver has to be sure to ease off the brake until the vehicle comes to rest before passengers exit to void being knocked off balance when the vehicle rolls back hard. My dealer has told me "that's normal." Doesn't seem right to me.

Excellent Vehicle

This is a very nice car. It looks way better than any other crossover that I test drove, but that's a different case on the inside, which is dull and ugly. Despite that, it is one of the best vehicles available. Driving American gives me a sense of pride to.

I have only had my Acadia for a short time. I really like everything about the Acadia. The ride is great and the gas mileage is better (about 20 in mixed driving) than expected. The Acadia is very confortable with loads of space inside. Handles great and does about everything short of driving itself and almost does that. At this point I would recomend the Acadia to anyone.

So Far, So Good

Great ride - smooth and quiet. Seats, Bose stereo, access to controls, all the bells bells and whistles on our SLE are great. Lots of room. Great safety features! Got 19 mpg on the first tank. Feels solid. Transmission shifts smoothly. Limited view out the back windows may be a challenge for towing our boat and backing it up. Maybe GM has finally turned the corner on quality cars and trucks? Overall, we are very happy!

Love all but seats/headrests

My wife and I traded our 2000 4Runner for the 2010 Acadia. 2nd row captain's chairs for our kids as well as easy access to the 3rd row were two of the main selling points. We like everything about the vehicle other than the gas mileage (16.5 MPG overall with much highway driving) and the front seats. The curve of the seat along with the forward angle of the headrest make it impossible to sit comfortably. I've tried every adjustment possible and can't get my upper back and neck to stop hurting. Kids love it. Friends love the look. The seats are the only problem.

I have been absolutely thrilled will this vehicle. GMC really paid attention to style, feature, function and all around usability. The engine is nothing short of awesome. The power and pickup would lead you to believe you were driving a bigger V8, but without the sluggishness and bulky feel. The vehicle is very responsive, nicely and thoughtfully featured without being overstated. I buy new cars every 2-3 years and as my first GMC all I can say is that I'm very pleased and impressed. Good job GMC!

Window sticker mileage is not factual. It is way too high. Even with cruise I am lucky to get 22 MPG. If there were ADA requirements for cars this one would fail. The traffic reporting is tied into the XM radio at a stiff renewal fee. I will hate to see what the On Star renewal fees are. There are hand held GPS providers that include traffic for free.

Very little good to say. Interior needs a handle at the drivers door for those of us that are mobility impaired and way to many little buttons to be pushing while driving. Dash is very distracting and confusing. Interior size is the best feature. I would not buy another one!

Love my Acadia

We stumbled across the Acadia on a whim after an Audi salesman was not forth right about the models on his car lot. The Acadia is a great choice for a family SUV. My daughter loves the second row captains seats because they are cozy and they even recline, I love the comfort and my husband loves the style. The ride is comfortable. We recently took it on a road trip that included going on some uneven dirt roads. It did an awesome job. When driving it feels bigger than it is. The safety ratings are also great. We traded our 10 year old Suburban for this car so I feel good about the longevity of a GMC product and I feel alot better about buying an American Car.

gas mileage is killing me

I have a new 2010 GMC acadia. It has 2000 miles on it. I get 10 mpg!!!! The wheels have no free roll. They always feel bound. The tranny down shifts hard and slows the vehicle from rolling. Try coasting at 60 mph and it winds down hard to 50 mph in 4 seconds. It causes you to constantly ride the gas pedal. IT STINKS

LUV THIS CAR!!!

I purchased this car after trading in my Honda CRV. I drive 50,000 miles a year for my job. I wanted something that was a bit bigger then the CRV and more comfortable. These Acadia's are sharp! I have only once been able to get 20mpg but it has been so cold out it is hard to get the good mileage so I am waiting for the warm to see what I get. This is really comfortable and I love this car!!! I've noticed that when I put the car in Park out of drive it seems to roll forward a bit far after you take your foot off the break, I just have to get used to that. I have been recommending this car to lots of people.

Love it!

My Highlander became too small and the Acadia is a great upgrade. I like the lines on the vehicle and it is a very practical people mover. I considered the Enclave but was turned off by too much chrome.

2010 Acadia bought brand new 12/31/2009 with only 108 miles on it. Exactly 2 weeks from the date of purchase and I watched it leave on a tow truck last night! I picked up school kids and then got a low oil pressure alarm (stop engine) on the display! The alarm would not stop and I pulled over in the nearest parking lot and phoned the dealership! Stranded for 3 hours with 3 small school kids because of my BRAND NEW CAR is not OK! I have wanted this car for over 2 years, and now I dont want it at all. Dealer says it is 'probably just a sensor". Guess what, I dont care if it is a sensor, or a gasket or a loose belt. New car on tow truck = me NOT HAPPY

My 2010 acadia is the best vehicle I have ever owned. Handling is excellent. It is very quiet. I love driving it. My only complaint is I wish I got better than 22 miles per gallon. My previous vehicle was getting 24 mpg.

I like most everything about this vehicle. The one complaint I would have is the headrest does not adjust as much as I would like, but it is my wife's car. Had a Toyota Highlander LTD. for her which I rarely drove, I thought it looked like a station wagon or a grocery getter not exactly a man's car. Now I drive her's almost any time we go together it has a great look! On a 75 mile trip we had 6 adults riding very comfortably. In the snow it is amazing it just doesn't move off track. Like the interior very much just macho enough. The ride of this vehicle is fantastic. You can see for miles with the headlamps. 3500 miles no complaints yet. MPG ok observed 24 highway but it is big.

Great Crossover

I got my Acadia in December, traded in a Yukon Denali. I find this vehicle superior in every way for my usage. It is very quiet inside, smooth and powerful. This is a much more compact package than the Yukon with better MPG, better performance, better ride quality, and on.

The best choice, but not perfect

When looking for a AWD SUV that can tow a boat, has enough height to get through the snow storms, a nice ride, 7 seats and easy access to the 3rd row, the choices are limited. We need captains chairs in the 2nd row. The traditional truck SUVs have this, but the 3rd row is either too small or doesn't fold flat. I also wasn't interested in getting 12 MPG or a truck-like ride. The only other SUV that compares to the Acadia is the Flex, but it has a small 3rd row, something we could be regretting when traveling with the inlaws. As you can see from my ratings, performance is ho-hum, but adequate. I haven't loaded it up and attached the trailer yet. Best marks for style, utility and quality.

pricey compared to foreign models with all the bells and whisles(4 runner, pilot). little things at $44k, like memory seats, tilt mirrors in reverse, anti hill roll, trailer tow, and navigation. I bought it because I did get good pricing and I liked the look. outward rear visability poor. I traded in a 2003 suburban I averaged 14.2 mpg. I am a shocked,7 model yrs later mpg is only slightly better. It doesn't sound solid when you close the front doors. close the front doors on a honda pilot, wow. I have only 400 miles so far so we'll see if it grows on me.

Just bought the Acadia

I wanted to be sure to comment because one reviewer stated the problem with the Acadia rolling backwards while "DRIVE" only occurs in FWD version-- that is INCORRECT-- the Acadia DOES ROLL BACKWARDS WHILE IN "DRIVE" IN THE AWD VERSION, AS WELL-- I know, because I have the AWD and it rolls backwards on a hill while in "DRIVE" (just like a stickshift car) Other than this strange little quirk, I love this car. I test-drove many of it's competitors and kept coming back to the GMC. The very best asset: it's VERY comfortable 3rd-row seating. In my opinion, it is the only SUV that has a comfortable, roomy 3rd-row where you don't feel cramped.

Acadia can archive 30-35 MPG under certain conditions, but in city driving it gets 10-15 MPG only. In 1st week of owning I found it has 2 driving modes: power and efficiency. Efficiency is activated only when cruse control is ON, otherwise it is in hungry power mode with loud engine noise, feels like driving a truck, but after a week you stop noticing noise. In cruse control transmission shifts into higher gear to keep engine at 1500RPM (2000RPM at 65mph), and ODBII scanner shows instant MPG 35+ at 40mph, 30MPG at 65mph and slightly less at higher speed. With cruse control off on the same road it shifts into lower gear, RPM increases to 2000, engine noise gets louder and MPG drops 50%.

Great

Ok 1st; The whole thing about it rolling back only happens on the FWD version. this is not a defect. I test drover the fwd and loved it. 2nd; i got awd because i have a cabin in the mountains nearby. the vehicle is really roomy and has a great powertrain. The Bose system is great. The display panels look great. very decent acceleration when needed. 288 HP pushes 3196lbs easily. If you are looking for something roomy and made with quality workmanship this would be a great family vehicle. This vehicle will grow with your growing family. seats 8 ot 7 if you opt for captains chairs in the second row. Enjoy.
