Well, I just wanted to say HELLO! I'm a new Acadia owner (about 1 hr ago). It's sittin' pretty in my garage. I said goodbye to my 2004 Acura MDX (which I ABSOLUTELY loved...but it's a company car and I've left the company - so I had to get a new one).

I found this site about a week ago and have been lurking! So, just wanted to say hello and hope I'm able to have a wonderful ownership of the Acadia!!

Maria!

Oh OK, I got the silver w/ grey interior and bench seat 2nd row (needed it to be a 5 seater) b/c my dogs are always in the back of the truck ;D

We really only wanted a few things w/ the truck - sunroof, bench seats, heated seats and light colored interior (for my light colored dogs)..but we ended up w/ a lot more b/c they couldn't fine a truck w/ only those things..so we got remote start, backup camera and second row sunroof. I wish my dealership was a little better, they aggravated me a bit, but now it's mine at 0% interest, so I can't complain.

Now I have to read my manual and get to know my car. I already ordered the cargo plastic thingy and the all weather mats should be in tomorrow, just have to see how my dogs do in the back if I have to invest in the dog barrier.

Oh...quick question...for those that have bench seat....does your middle seat have a headrest? Mine doesn't. Seems like the pictures show a headrest.

Ok thanks for the warm welcome!!

Hi Maria,
Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your new Acadia. I also have the second row bench seat. It has no middle headrest? The third row doesn't have it either. Where did you see the pictures?

Hi Maria,

Welcome to THE place to find info on your new Acadia! Best of luck with your new vehicle. I have buckets, so I can't help with that question. What part of CT are you from? I'm from northeast part of Fairfield county, and bought my Acadia in Milford. I was happy with the dealership, but it has changed ownership since that time. So it has become a question mark again. The service department is pretty good and they are very willing to listen to the things I have learned on this forum.

Good luck & welcome,
tm59

Maria, Welcome to the forum. We have the bench in our 2008 and it does not have a center headrest.

Hi Maria, and welcome. :cheers: Oh and you didn't pay any more for the 2nd row sunroof, they are all like that. The front one opens and the back one is a fixed panel.

Ive had my Acadia for 2 weeks and one of the things I am wondering: Is the exhaust system stainless steel? My 2007 silverado (which I traded for the Acadia), listed stainless steel exhaust but the sticker for the Acadia does not say stainless steel, although the salesman told me they were.

Thanks

From what I know; factory installed exhaust is not stainless steel

Not stainless steel exhaust makes me unhappy.

Maria,

I'd like to hear about which Dealer....I'm in the market right this second and would like to know who to avoid!!

Is there a required down payment for 0% interest....

All of the exhaust systems are stainless - been that way for years. Good luck to the new Acadia owner. The vehicle will run circles around your MDX and will be much less costly to maintain.
