This is an idea to share the best or worst deals we have gotten on our Acadias so that others may use them as either a benchmark to negotiate their own deal or to buy from the listed dealer. If done properly, this will save our fellow forum members a lot of time shopping dealers. Members can then search in their region forum for a dealer by name or by city.

Please utilize the following format when posting here:

1) City & State & date of purchase (month/year is fine)
2) Name of dealer & phone # or contact info (name of salesman or Internet manager)
3) Year, type (FWD or AWD), & model (SLE/SLT1/SLT2) of Acadia purchased & options.
4) Price paid as it relates to Edmunds.com invoice- include ALL dealer fees, but not tax or trade-in value. Please only list prices “anyone” can get. This EXCLUDES GM Employee, buying club, credit union, etc.
5) Other comments- got a good price on my trade in, the sales people were very knowledgeable, etc.

Examples:
1) Nonexistent, Nameofstate, July 2008
2) James Smith Pontiac-Buick-GMC, 888-555-1234, Internet Manager John Doe
3) 2009 FWD SLT2 with nav, rear DVD, remote start
4) Paid $39,999 with all fees. Edmunds invoice was $39,899, so I paid $100 over invoice.
5) The dealer was able to order right away. They gave me 1,000 less than average wholesale on my trade.


1) Nonexistent, Nameofstate, July 2008
2) James Smith Pontiac-Buick-GMC, 888-555-1234, Internet Manager John Doe
3) 2009 FWD SLT2 with nav, rear DVD, remote start
4) Did not buy. Dealer would not come off of MSRP of $42,123..
5) The salesperson was aloof and uninformed as to their product. They insisted I finance through them before they would do any negotiating.

For us in Ontario I would reccomend Brian Finch Pontiac Buick GMC and our salesperson Craig Stott he does everything he can to find you the vehicle you want at a price that works. HE gives you the details and info that most other salespeople cringe at giving.

I was thinking the mom bears a resemblance to someone here we all know & love... must be something with the headgear. :D

Odds are they are a true hockey family since no one is smiling with their mouth open due to missing teeth! j/k DSNY!

One of the funniest video games I ever saw was one called Blades of Steel. It was a hockey simulation (big surprise, eh?), and if you ran a couple of opposing players together, it said FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT and they went at it.

3rd, I'm figuring you are in the Pacific NW US, DSNY, you know there are two Canadian regions listed here also, right? Wouldn't want your wisdom wantonly wasted.
