2017 Acadia SLT with no rear air and heat.

I hope someone at GM picks this up. According to all sources, all 2017 Acadias have rear air and heat. My main requirement was that option. The dealer in Dearborn suggested an upgrade interior calld ALL TERRAIN. I am handicapped and when they found the car, it was surrounded with snow. I took it home a few days later and a couple of days later I discovered that it does not have rear air and heat. I went in to the dealer and told them that and they said they would get back to me. I had maybe 50 miles on it. After no results, I wrote GM when I had 71 miles on it. Again wrote with maybe 120 miles on it. I called customer assistance and talked to a guy that knows nothing. Kept calling my car an Arcadia. The sales brochures show all Acadia's have rear air and heat. He insists that all have it except the SLT. WRONG. I have a listing for one locally that is a SLT1, that shows rear air and heat. I feel this is fraud. Please GM, contact me.
The brochure show that ALL 2017 Acadia's have rear air and heat.

Read the manual. You have to turn it on for it to work.

Re: 2017 Acadia SLT with no rear air and heat.

All 2017 Acadia models have rear air heat / Air conditioning.

NOT all 2017 Acadia models have manual controls for the rear heat / Air conditioning.

You control the rear heat and air conditioning from your main touch screen (some models have ADDITIONAL controls located in the back seat)

The All Terrain is a 'package' available on several trim levels, what trim level do you own? SLE1 / SLE2/ SLT1 / SLT2

Re: 2017 Acadia SLT with no rear air and heat.

Here is some text from the manual which is posted online.
Rear Climate Control
System...
If equipped, the rear climate control
system is on the rear of the center
console storage. The rear climate
settings can be adjusted with this
system.
1. Fan Control
2. AUTO (Automatic Operation)
3. MODE (Air Delivery Mode
Control)
4. TEMP (Temperature Control)
5. Heated Rear Seats (If
Equipped)

206 Climate Controls
Rear Climate Touch Screen
Controls
1. Outside Temperature Display
2. Rear Climate Temperature
Control
3. Fan Control
4. SYNC (Synchronized
Temperatures)
5. REAR O (On/Off)
6. Rear AUTO (Automatic
Operation)
7. Rear Control Lockout
8. Air Delivery Mode Control
REAR O : Press REAR O to turn
the rear climate control on or off.
If the rear climate control is turned
off using REAR O on the touch
screen.
SYNC : Press SYNC on the touch
screen to match the rear climate
control temperature to the front
climate control driver temperature.
The SYNC button will be lit. Adjust
the rear climate control temperature
to change the linked temperature.
The SYNC button turns off.
Rear Control Lockout : Press Rear
Control Lockout on the touch screen
to lock or unlock control of the rear
climate control system from the front
seat. When locked the rear climate
control cannot be adjusted from the
rear climate control faceplate.

My questions are how can you purchase a vehicle with a specific requirement and not make sure it that it is there and in working order before taking delivery?
If it states in the manual "If Equipped" How can you be sure all Acadias have this feature?
I believe that there are always rear vents in the Acadias, but there is an option to have the rear HVAC controls there in the rear. The rear settings would mimic the passenger setting if there is not a separate rear control panel.

Re: 2017 Acadia SLT with no rear air and heat.

There's a big difference between having climate control with separate 'zones' in the vehicle, or an HVAC system where one controller sets the temperature throughout the car.

If the OP wanted zoned climate control, he should have done some homework to make sure he got the right option. The implication of 'fraud' is itself fraudulent.

Re: 2017 Acadia SLT with no rear air and heat.

Agree with both above posts, however the 2017 models are a little different then the previous models....

ALL have tri-zone climate controls now, but not all have the rear mounted controls (that is listed "if equipped") in the manual. The rear zone is now controlled from the touch screen, and it is independent of the front two zones. Some models have additional controls on the back of the center armrest (just like before) and those controls need to be authorized / enabled by the touch screen. Without the controls, only the touchscreen can control the rear zone.

Just went through the manual and see exactly what you're talking about. I think the OP is just ticked he didn't get a car with the optional rear controller and wants to blame his faux pas on GM. Guess his back seat drivers lose.

In the new 2017 brochure, all Acadia's have tri-zone air and heat. ALL. Even the cheapest model. I have the SLT1 If you go to build the car on the GM website, it lists the trizone air on all models starting from the cheapest.

Re: 2017 Acadia SLT with no rear air and heat.

By the way, I went back to the dealer and looked at their cheapest Acadia. I had no options. I did have tri zone rear air and heat with the rear touchscreen and controls on the rear of the console. This car had no options and was an SLE1. Mine is an SLT1 and has no controls and no way to control it on the front touchscreen. This is the new smaller Acadia.

OK so do you have vents in the back or not?
