    The"9txx" series transmission have been out for a while and are used in a wide array of GM cars. The 18-20 traverse and enclave use the 9t65, i've heard nothing bad...yet. Thats is what they would put in the 2020 acadia. Most manufactures have gone to 8, 9, 10 speed autos and have been fairing...

    I guess you would have to jump over to the traverse forum to see what actual numbers they are getting. The'19 FWD traverse we test drove had 350 miles on it, of what i assume are city test drives, and the avg mpg showed 20.1 Both my 09 and 14 awd acadias were rated at 16/22 and we pretty much...

    I understand that, out of my 6 cars, 3 are manual trans. I think the 9 speed will give the 2020 a 2mpg bump in economy.When looking for a car, we test drive a 19 traverse FWD and a 19 acadia awd. I was surprised to find much heavier traverse was rated at like 18/27mpg while the acadia was only...

    I actually prefer the 17-19 front end, looks like they just took the nose off the current GMC canyon. The interior looks the same, they just deleted the shifter, and used button that look like the radio buttons for D P N etc. The main thing its got going for it is the 9 speed trans, I real with...
  9. Driving with no key.

    GMC Acadia
    Reference a 2017 denali. I've had a few cars in the past that have the key in the pocket, pushbutton start, but none have seem to function like the Acadia. The other day my wife and I drove to a restaurant, I let her out of the car and went to go park. I probably drove about 400 yards away...
  10. Upgraded my Acadia

    GMC Acadia
    Hope they get that liftgate sorted out for you. That is a lot of miles to put on a 2018 wow. It wasn't a rental was it? I was pretty current on all the issues with the 07 through 14 Acadia, and when we got a new, small Acadia, I was wondering the same thing. Basically I have not seen very many...

    Awesome thanks.
  12. Return of GMC's Full-sized CUV

    Automaker News
    I read this article the other day and the first thing i thought was, Why? this car already exists, its called a traverse/enclave. The current "small" Acadia was the void they were missing IMO. I guess most people dont realize that the acadia/traverse/enclave/outlook are all the same car from...

  14. Acadia Appreciation Post

    GMC Acadia
    I've owned several acadias since 2009, and have always thought it would be cool to take it up there. We just upgraded to the new body style and so far, we are loving it.

    Haha, I actually do live just a few miles away from where they hold the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance and I've actually had cars entered in the show previously. I'll check if there's an Acadia category, and I'll hook you up LOL
  16. '17 Acadia paint correction

    Washing & Detailing
    A clay bar is very good at removing contaminants from on top of the paint, but does nothing for the quality of the paint. Factory clear coat is about 50 mils thick, most scratches and swirls are in the first few mils. The goal is to remove just enough paint, say 5mils, so that the paint is...

    There was a tiny bit of factory orange peel. Yes, you sand some of the clear coat. In reality you're only taking away a very small percentage of the clear coat, literally microns... in fact, most of the time Orange Peel is retained. (As in my case) I generally do a paint correction on all my...

    I purchased a 2017 Acadia Denali for the family. I actually got it from carvana, so i wasn't able to inspect it before purchase, but figured it would be nice having only 10k miles. While they had it all cleaned up, it was obvious the previous owner had taken it through automatic car washes :( Im...

    Thats not a little sub lol. thats a big boom. I remember when i was a teen i had 2 12s, then in my 20s i went to 1 12,and then later, one 10". IMO 1one 10" is great, provides nice clean bass, a little punch in the back etc.On my wifes yukon, I tried something smaller, I yanked out the crappy 6"...
