Bought a used 2016 SLE2 with 10K miles on it last week. Been looking for a while and finally found one we love at what we thought was a decent price. Has everything we were looking for, including the tow package so we can pull our camper. Happy with the purchase so far, although I'm jealous because its mainly my wife's car so she can haul the kids around.  She seems to think its way bigger than her previous car (2007 Odyssey), but I just compared the dimensions on both and they are almost identical (exact same length, Acadia is an inch taller, Acadia has bigger wheels).

Can't wait to see how this thing tows!  Cheers

Bought a used 2016 SLE2 ...


Didn't you post in another thread that you bought a car advertised as an SLT2 and found papers saying it was an SLT1? Then, you said you ran a VIN check and found it to be an SL2. You're saying now that it's an SLE2. Care to clarify the confusion?  shrug

(It would help if you put some info about the car in the signature block of your profile. No one will ever have to ask you what you're driving ever again.)

Thanks for that!  thumbs up It really makes a difference in discussions about standard and option packages of the various builds.

Will look forward to your comments about towing with your new car. Good luck.

 Welcome to the forum, BTW.

Its a 99 Palomino Fily Popup GVWR 2200 lbs.  I know the Acadia can handle that with no problem, it will just be nice to not worry about how much extra gear I can bring.....Maybe now I can even get a roof rack for the bikes.  I just wasn't comfortable going too far with our van, it wasn't really meant for towing and I never felt quite right once the 5 of us and are stuff were in it.
