Pros: What do you like about your 2007 GMC Acadia?
Looked at Toyotas, Hondas, Lexus, Mazda and couldn't find a vehicle that had everything we wanted. We wanted AWD, five star driver and passenger safety ratings, reasonable towing capacity, comfortable seating, room to stretch my legs out, 7 passenger carrying capability with at least two passenger captain's chairs, very quiet ride, sure, easy handling on mountain roads, a large cargo area, the ability to be towed all four down without a big preparation hassle, a lot of nice options, reasonable power and of course an automatic trans., and all this at a reasonable price.
We found the Acadia had all of our requirements and more.. The vehicle has AWD for our snowy clime, ten strategically placed air bags, a 4,500 # towing capacity, very comfortable and roomy seating to allow for my bad back (41.3 in. front leg room), 7 place seating with two captain's chairs, and excellent, very quiet, wind-noise free, ride. The Acadia handles very well on our winding, mountain roads, although with slight over-steer, and it has plenty of cargo space (117 cu ft.). The 275 hp V6 supplies 251 ft-lbs. of torque, which is fine for our needs. Best of all we were able to inter-net purchase for $200 over TRUE factory invoice, less $1,500.00 in rebates. The vehicle has more options than I would've thought of: two moonroofs, power rear liftgate,19" Ultra Bright alum. wheels, XM radio with navigation system, DVD entertainment pkg. with MP3, ultrasonic rear park assist, On Star, heads-up display, remote start, and more. All this with a five year/ 100.000 powertrain limited warranty. This is especially important because of the new six speed tranny.
The Acadia is a knock-out from its great eye catching looks, (we've got the Red Jewel Tintcoat), to it's excellent handling and quiet ride. What took GMC so long to come up with a winner????
Cons: How would you improve your 2007 GMC Acadia?
The vehicle has over-steer and the tranny does a lot of searching when in sixth gear.
