GMC Acadia Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr SUV 288-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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. full 2011 GMC Acadia review

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. full 2011 GMC Acadia review

Water leaks, so many the Dealer has a hard time repairing. Power steering pump wines so loud you can hear it in the interior. Dash rattles. Cruse control is useless due to the trans calibration, continuously down shifts the trans on hills and in a wind. full 2008 GMC Acadia review

whenever it rains hard, it makes weird noise from the tire/brakes, and the steering wheel gets locked up. one time, water was leaking/dripping under dash onto my foot(driver side) as well as the passenger side. full 2007 GMC Acadia review
