Introduction

I buy new and used vehicles for resale, projects, and personal and business use. My experience draws from over 80 vehicles that I have owned or worked on and driven.

Why the 2011 GMC Acadia?

Reliability & durability

Seats 8 people. I test drove a leather with DVD used vehicle prior to purchasing and it was decent. I purchased this in March 2011 with 5500 miles from Bob Moore in OKC. Seats were a little uncomfortable but not unbearable. at 30000 miles the rear strut had issues on the liftgate, noisy (really noisy at low speeds) power steering, tires wearing out, and gas tank showed half full when I ran out of gas. Today I found out there is a leak in the discharge hose of the Ac and possibly more issues because I have no ac at 90,800 miles. Seats are garbage, gas mileage never averaged over 21, wont tow much of a load, and small inside. I would never recommend a GMC, anything from Bob Moore or the Acadia. I have owned over 50 vehicles and this is the most problems for a new vehicle I have ever had.

Why Not the 2011 GMC Acadia?

Reliability & durability

Mileage, choices of tires that fit this vehicle, reliability, lack of interior space, lack of towing ability, comfortability, the list is quite long. For $32,000 MSRP, there are many vehicles that beat this car in every category.

Conclusion

I used to belive GMC was quality but I will be purchasing Ford, Dodge, Toyota, and Honda from now on.
