Got my SLT-2 today

Got it! Took delivery today on my 2009 SLT-2 (details in my sig., below).

Order date: 8/29/08. The vehicle arrived at the dealership on 10/7/08.

My wife and I (she had to co-sign some of the papers) went to the dealer this morning and left there this afternoon. Lots of stuff to sign and even more for the salesman to explain and demonstrate. An employee drove it to a nearby gas station to fill up the gas tank. When he returned, the odometer showed a grand total of 8 miles on it. I just got home after driving around a bit and then stopping in a parking lot to fool with some knobs and buttons. There are a lot! I'll be reading and re-reading the manual(s) a bunch in the next few days. One nice break -- I got the benefit of a $500 rebate. No explanation, no special name for it, just got it.

So far today has been a very good day.

Re: Got my SLT-2 today

Congrats Bobbo! I'm glad you're happy with your new car! I can't wait to get my hands on my own. The $500 discount was put into place by GM as an incentive for the '09s as of Oct. 1st, so your timing was opportune!

Have a fun weekend getting to know all the knobs & buttons. If you can, post a picture for us, too!

Congrats here also, link/attach some pictures! Those knobs and buttons are a two year degree worth of study! Fortunately, many here have fought those battles & can help.

Life lesson: The two best days owning an Acadia are the day you buy it and the day you sell it. Our $42K Acadia lasted less than 6 years and began to fall apart: radio, hatch, water pump, power steering, TPMS, and now the transmission all within a year.

8 miles? I'd be p*ssed (lol). I had around 330 and I was happy. 8 Wow.

It's a great color, and great vehicle. Enjoy proud new parent.

Re: Got my SLT-2 today

Thanks to all of you for your encouraging replies. I do appreciate them.

Adamdc, the salesmen at the dealership where I picked up my Acadia were all surprised it arrived so quickly. They weren't expecting it for another 2 weeks. Whether they were giving me a snowjob, I don't know. I've gathered that different dealerships are on different allotment schedules, and of course their distance from Lansing would also make a difference. Maybe some other members here will chip in with their wait times.
