Kid #3 means sayonara to the Volvo XC 70. A bit underpowered, but it's been a nice vehicle. Wife is dying for a Mercedes R350, but man is that a lot of coin. We've looked at most 7 seat crossovers, and the Acadia is the first one she's actually enthused about (Taurus X didn't exactly thrill her... most others didn't have the room we're looking for). I'll be looking to buy an Acadia early summer 2008, and was just wondering if there's been any detail or rumor on Acadia changes for 2009. Great forum by the way... very helpful.
