:ditto: If we still had our Odyssey and were looking to replace it, we would settle on the Acadia again. We got tired of the minivan thing but still needed the space and people hauling capabilities. A less fuel efficient body-on-frame SUV was not necessary since we don't do any off-roading and we have my truck for when we need to tow. Besides, $4 (or higher) gas is not a huge factor for us as we just don't have to cover that many miles living in a small town.Copperhead13 said:In short....no.
I still would buy the Acadia. Better all around vehicle than any current hybrid and from what I can see from some of the future car models coming out, I would rather have the Acadia than those tin cans.MtnBiker said:Also - if you answered "No" to this question, you might ask yourself how you will answer in a year or two when gas is $5, $6, or $7 a gallon.

No, in fact $4/gal gas reminds me that my Acadia gets 50% better mileage than my last ride (V8 Mountaineer, 12mpg). We got the first Acadia to hit the dealer lot last year, and we keep seeing more and more of them. There are and will always be people who need the capacity of a large vehicle, and right now lots of them seem to be getting into Acadias. In fact, directly across the street from the Buick/GMC dealer is a Saturn dealer, and none of the Acadia/Enclave/Outlook cousins sit on the lot very long.gmc4me said:Is $4 gas causing any potential Acadia buyers to reconsider? Or are buyers looking at the lambdas rather than other less-efficient vehicles?
