It's sort of interesting to note that several members who have posted here cited similar experiences and reasons for choosing the Acadia over other models. I was also a long time foreign vehicle owner (BMW), and a very satisfied one at that. The only reason I decided to leave my beloved BMW's was because they did not offer enough in the way of driver's leg room, passenger space, and at reasonable prices (I would have forgone the price issue - "you get what you pay for.")
But, when I really finally accepted that neither BMW or Mercedes offered what I needed, I came upon the Acadia. With all the appointments, options, electronics, room, handling - all the stuff that any car enthusiast would want, Acadia was the obvious choice. But, when you add in all the potential problems, TSB, complaints, etc. and you still
decide to give GM a chance . . . well, that says a lot about faith (in a company).
Now, out of the blue, with the potential for the GMC Acadia to help pull GM back into profitability, they decide to cut the division - how does that make sense?
Sorry . . . I'm just venting a little bit. Let's hope none of this is true. Wouldn't you think GM would do some sort of survey and see what their customer base wants?
The powers that be are definitely
