I can't recall reading of any 09 owners having leak issues. You should be OK.. :thumb:

Please tell us how you managed to get that much of a discount AND 0%. From all of my research, I don't see anybody getting that much off. I have $2500 in GM Card earnings and still wouldn't come down to your price.

I think the color may have contributed to this deal; not many like medium brown; CT likes it and he was in the right place at the right time; good deal :thumb:

I don't believe the sunroof design has been changed so I would watch it carefully. I've had no issues with my 08 but it seems to be a widespread problem.

For what it's worth; the leak is not as prevalent in late build 08's and 09's; I do know of an 09 Enclave that leaked

Not saying there wasn't a design issue, but wasn't part of the problem that a drainage tube not getting connected properly at the factory? And I believe it was isolated to 07 and some early 08 productions models. IMO it's silly to warn people about the 09 sunroof.

Issue according to GM was that the drainage tubes were not long enough - but there are numerous leaks even after the recall service was performed.

Mikemu, are you trying to drip on my parade? J/k...I'll make sure the recall, connections have been inspected or completed.

Holy cow - congrats on the deal and the new vehicle!

That's a huge deal; dealers in my area won't touch anything near 10% off MSRP, let alone 14-15%; which is why I'm still searching - I've walked away from a number of them already

CT - hopefully no drips at all but best to be aware there could be an issue. You'll love cruising the Merritt with the new ride - I do it frequesntly to visit children in college up your way.

Hey folks, I don't have sunroof leaks, shifting issues, HVAC problems or anything else like that with my '07. The only thing I ever griped about is a 6-disk cd changer that doesn't automatically advance toi the next cd. And that subject got snubbed in this forum and discarded as picayune.

I learned how to deal effectively with the new technology in this vehicle and thoroughly enjoy driving the Acadia in the mountains, across the plains, in the rain, through the snow and so on!

It seems that too many of you wouldn't enjoy ANY vehicle you bought, regardless of price or manufacturer. You just like to ***** for the sake of bitching.

My advice to you? Join the lemmings and get the hell out of the human gene pool!
