DONT GET 2017 ACADIA DENALI - Several options DO NOT WORK !!!

I owned a 2014 Acadia Denali and for some strange reason decided to trade for 2017 model. New 2017 model sucks ! Lane departure warnings DO NOT WORK. NO BEEPS if you change lanes without turn signal - Regardless of your speed or which streets or freeways you are on - I tested this along with 2 people from dealership - we drove over 100 miles testing this !!!! ( 0f course after I leased it !!! ) - Never Worked . Front Collision does not work unless you are about to HIT the Vehicle ahead - beeps if you are about 10 feet away at 30 MPH - If you are parking behind a car, it will beep only if you come within 8 inches !!! DEFEATS the purpose of having this ! MY 2014 Acadia Denali worked fine - it would beep if I changed lane without turn signal and would also beep if I came close to another vehicle - depending on my setting - far,medium or near ( forward collision ) . Front Auto Braking does NOT WORK . I went to 3 other dealers to show me how it is supposed to work - They were all surprised to see it does NOT WORK !!!! I assumed that 2017 acadia denali would be better than 2014 I owned and assumed that everything that worked on it will work better or at least the same way - NO NO NO ! Big Disappointment !!!!! Also new 2017 Acadia is Way too Small !!!! Please TRUST ME - Before getting this , do ask the salesperson to show how all the features work - Trust me , you will be disappointed. The ONLY good thing is that I leased it and will get RID of this S*** in 2 years ! Have previously bought 2011 and 2014 Acadia Denalis - WILL NEVER BUY or Lease GMC again in my life.

And on top of that he is obviously a trool. No thinking person would find fault with a whole line of vehicles based on only one sample.

Or it could be that his reading ability matches his composition skills and he did not read that many of these features he mentioned have to first be turned on.

I don't know WTF he is talking about, everything he is complaining about works fine on ours. Scared the bejezzes out of the wife when the Forward Collision Alert activated the only time it needed to. Lane departure either beeps or vibrates when she drifts out of her lane.

I think you called it in your first sentence, George. (Though, the spelling is a bit off. ) The idiot showed his skill, or lack thereof, by posting the same thing twice last night. Thankfully, the mods removed one of the posts after a bit of strategic reporting.

Nice first post...
Sorry you have had "issues" with your new Acadia. We love our as it works like it is supposed to. I have never had the lane departure warning system beep or vibrate either (Maybe its in the settings) it will just guide the Acadia back into the lane (Which I am fine with). I have had the Front Collision warning lights pop up on the front windshield but never been close enough to have the vehicle need to stop itself.

About the size. wouldn't you have figured out it was too small on the first test drive?? We noticed the size was smaller than our 2008 Enclave but it still worked for our family so we purchased it. If size was an issue we wouldn't have purchased. The only regret I have is not being able to talk my wife into waiting a bit longer to get a better deal (17% off deal)

Just curious if these dealers you went to suggest that you leave your Acadia and try and fix your "issues"?


Again sorry you have issues with yours. Sounds like you are ranting because you are frustrated which I understand but to say that new buyers will be disappointed is not true.

Re: DONT GET 2017 ACADIA DENALI - Several options DO NOT WORK !!!

Can owners of 17's confirm or deny ANYTHING the OP stated? Does the Lane Departure beep when you drift? Front Collision, does it sound off and give you plenty of time to stop? And parking behind a car? Mine never beeps when I parking behind someone, I'd love for it to beep when I get 8" away from the front vehicle, maybe that's a setting. Mine only beeps when I'm backing up as I get close to the vehicle behind me...but I have that great rear camera to guide me too. And front Auto Braking, does it work as expected? Size is size, I know what I'm getting into...thank you!

Re: DONT GET 2017 ACADIA DENALI - Several options DO NOT WORK !!!

The wife is the driver on the 2017, so my reply is based on being a passenger. It seems the Lane Departure seems to work both ways, beeps and also nudges you back into your lane depending on how you cross over the line. Like I posted earlier Forward Collision Alert beeped and braked, it also beeps if a car is turning and if she doesn't slow down as she approaching it. With the Technology Pkg you get the front and side camera shots. I have to stop and finish posting on my desktop, battery low.

Continuing on.

Pulling forward and backing up it does beep when you get too close to an object. When she's pulling into the garage it shows a how close she is getting to the wall or items to the side of the car in stages. She really likes the rear camera and its grid lines.

Re: DONT GET 2017 ACADIA DENALI - Several options DO NOT WORK !!!


Some of you obviously did not get what I was trying to say..

Yes, all the setting are ON for the options that do not work - Some idiot thought otherwise !
Two Salespeople from same dealership took my Acadia for test drive and were surprised too that the options I mentioned did not work.

It was in with Service Department for 2 days and they could not fix it.
Service department updated software and soon after both Lane Departure and Front Collision worked ONCE ONLY!

I have given up on this and am glad that I will get rid of this in 2 years.

Yesterday, I went to another dealer to test drive. Yes, I did tell the salesperson that I only wanted to see if some options work or not as I already
leased it from another dealer.
This salesperson was also surprised to see that the options did not work on Acadia.
He then took me on a test drive on a Cadillac - IT WORKED EXACTLY LIKE IT IS SUPPOSED TO !!!!
And Yes, I did compensate this salesperson for his time.

Those who do not see issues may be the ones who never owned Acadia Denali before and probably were driving very old cars or Suvs and
are just too excited and not know how options are supposed to work.

About the size of new Acadia - I just wanted to let others who have older Acadias to know.
I am single and do not have an issue with it's size.
