Oh a whim I bought a 2012 Acadia Denali AWD for $3900. It was rough., Had 176K miles on it. Amazingly, after sorting through a lot of problems, it has turned out to be a great SUV. Runs absolutely perfect, but had a lot of little nagging problems the previous owner ignored. Fortunately, they were mostly items I could get from Amazon, like hood and hatch struts, etc. It was mainly just trim, and had to replace the sides on each seat. That plastic is poorly designed and the wear and tear of getting in and out broke both of them. But everything works, except the rear TV. Bought a nice Kenwood for it because I have had GM turn by turn before and it is crap. Now I can load my Google and Spotify and it's like having a newer version. Found a set of used Continentals for $300. Had brakes and rotors done. Changed the oil in the motor and tranny, and presto, it runs like a new vehicle. A joy to drive. When I ran the VIN, I found out it was over $50K new. I was shocked. Now the only small issue are the folding mirrors, one works the other quit. Always something. Hope you enjoy yours.Yes, quite a bit. Regular oil changes were done and some service done at GMC dealerships. Not sure about the original timing chain but I could have it done for about $1500. Not sure how preventative that is or just throwing money at a time bomb. I don't think, kow, that it is or I wouldn't have bought it. It seems to be in great shape, exterior and interior are impressive considering the miles and age.
