Great site!

I'm 31 married with a 3.5 year old and one due in early June. I am turning in my Montero Sport because it is too small and has 112,000 miles on it. Ordered an SLT-1 Charcoal with Ebony interior last Friday and can't wait until it arrives.

I was about to purchase either pathfinder or Acura MDX. Acura remake is horrid and the Pathfinder is too truckie. Never thought I would say this, but this is the first domestic vehicle I will own!

Good job GM!

30/male/NW Alabama...

1 5 year old and 1 due in April....we need more room for the latest bundle of joy and the grandparents if they want to tag along....

We sold the Montero Sport and purchased a Deep Blue Metallic/Titanium SLE. After looking at Tahoes, Odysseys, and Siennas, we came very close to getting an Odyssey, but then we test drove the Acadia. We originally wanted a SLT-1 with options, but our local dealer had this one, which was the color my wife wanted, during the 0% financing promotion. So, we took it....:)

Just the 2 of us + dog


Selected an Acadia that local dealer had already ordered for stock, but not sure when it would be in. Actually only had to wait one week. Love the car! Traded an '04 Caddy SRX for the Acadia. I think the Acadia is a MUCH better car than the SRX---and less $. New car delivered on Jan. 31 and so far, it is wonderful! Still learning about all the "toys"!

Married (Kids out of the nest and better off than we are!)

We love to play outdoors and need room to haul our toys around, bikes, skis, etc.
Have had minivans, but want something sportier. Hope to retire later this year and need a vehicle that can be our home away from home, and still get good mileage.
We were running out of options till the Acadia came on the scene. Now it looks like just the ticket! :)

Excellent forum--esp as a new start up!

Chuck (forum name is my license plate number past 30 years)
Yorktown, Va

56 - retired 13 wonderful months!

I drive a 2003 BMW Sterling Gray M5 and a 05 Silver Harley Road King Classic

1-4-2007 Ordered an 2007 SLT-2, Deep Blue, Titanium, MSRP $41K--(Paying $37 after discounts)

Replacing my wife's 2002 Silver Acura MDX Touring/Nav (looked at 07 [email protected] $47K--no discounts)

Dealer said 10 weeks (Mar 15)--called last week and said will be here approx 15 Feb (4 weeks early)
I assume GM is inserting some "pre-sold" orders in front of the the dealer "speculative inventory" orders.

My wife's only complaint was the "Bright Red GMC" on nose is too masculine--
I told her it means " G[/color]rand-M[/color]a's-C[/color]ar"
-- Problem solved! (we have 4 grand children)

Looking forward to using Acadia to tow Harley to Florida this winter, and out West this summer.

This busts the demographics posted so far....

Bob, 47
Falls Church, VA & Lost River, WV on weekends
Partnered 15 years to Steve, 48
No kids, 2 dogs (Captain's chairs would give them each private seats!)

Replacing an aging Audi Allroad almost 7 years old and upcoming maintenance costs = new car payments. Love the car, but can't justify expense anymore. Keeping the 02 VW Cabrio GLX 5 speed manual...way too much fun.

Want SLT-2 AWD, NAV, HID, HUD, ... almost loaded but not sure we need rear DVD...what will the dogs watch?
Really want iPod full integration!!

Hi Everyone. My name is Linda and I'm a mid 40's homemaker heavily involved with son's school activities. New to forums but son got me into this one. (Son 1, Anthony) So most of the posting on here will probably be his.

Live in the hills of Roanoke, VA, originally from MI. Have 2 sons, 20 & 18. We don't need as much room as the Eddie has and fell in love with the Acadia and the "just right" feel. Had my eye on a SLT 2, nicely equipped but reality of 2 college tuitions put an end to that! We ordered a SLE AWD blue-gold, Preferred pkg., cargo pkg., trailering, 6 cd. Just enough. Ordered this on 1/13 and still have no word on production week. Bummer :( We will post more when we hear more and pictures when we are proud "parents".

Hi everyone....this is a great and friendly forum. I love how everyone is so helpful here. I recently joined the old forum and moved over here when this one opened.

I'm Louise...single, forty-something, no kids except for my dog. ;D
I live in a suburb of the Motor City...and there seems to be a shortage of Acadias
on the road here too! I have yet to see one other than on dealer lots.
I currently drive a silver 2004 Bonneville (previously drove a Gran Prix).
I was looking for a crossover SUV for my next car...originally was looking at
the Equinox or Torrent. But I didn't like the looks of them on the inside.
Then I read about the Acadia and I was hooked! So much classier looking!
My lease expires in May so I've got a few months to go. Hope to get out to the
dealer for a test drive soon. I was interested in the Blue-Gold (loved the way it looked in Motor Trend). But will wait until a few members get theirs so I can see what it really looks like! ;)
