  • Bought my SEL in April with the $3,000 'package' plus leather. Have about 5,000 miles on it including a round trip from Houston to Chicago. This is the first new car I have bought that has had NOTHING to 'fix'. I'm 78 and bought many new cars inclu…
  • My SEL is 6 months old with about 4,000 miles. No squeals. And no other issues.
  • Picked up an SEL on Tuesday (Conroe, Tx) with the $3,000 package and leather. Total MSRP--$32,390. Paid $29,794, plus the usual kickers. For anyone who hasn't seen it, check out http://www.truecar.com/index.html. The site claims to report real pric…
  • Drove to San Antonio and back from Houston over Christmas. 2008 Acadia had 22mpg going to SA and 28 coming back. Wind power rules!
  • Not to make you feel bad, but my Acadia gets 16-17 mpg in the city and 22-24 at 73 mph. (1,000 on the odometer) If I were you, I'd be howling at the dealer, area, and GM reps.
  • Drove from Houston to San Antonio and back this weekend. On the drive to S.A. the Acadia averaged 21.8 (strong head wind). On the return trip, the average was 23.8----calm winds. Speed was set at 73mph on both legs. The mileage on the vehicle is j…
  • Sorry to hear about the problems lately. Just a note-----my 2008 (16 months old, about 7k miles) Acadia has been flawless except for the missing pig tail antenna at delivery. Mileage in town (average speed about 20mph) is 16+. Highway is 23-26, depe…
  • On Sept 8 I posted about my panel lights going dark. Turned out my grandson had 'dialed' the dash lights down to 'minimum'. LOL
  • Yesterday and today,on starting, the panel went thru its check steps but after that the entire panel was dark. Restarting caused the problem to go away. Any body else seen this? This is a 2008 Acadia about a year old, 5,000 miles.
  • My SLT 1 has been flawless except for the pigtail missing on the XM antenna. Currently have 2,000+ miles at 4 months old. Still loving it.
  • As to light colored mats. My 2007 Lucerne had the 'ice cream' mats. Bought (on the net) a set of black mats with a Buick logo. Heavier than the factory mats. When I sell the car, the ice cream mats go back in.
  • I bought a black Impala for my granddaughter. That's the color she asked for-----------now regrets the choice----too hard to keep it looking clean.
  • Just to spoil the discussions----took my Lucerne in today to correct a slight 'bump' in the steering which could be felt in low speed turns. Replaced the steering shaft under warranty. Was told that safety was not involved. The car was delivered a…
  • My Acadia has the 'under steering wheel on the right' toggles for the radio volume. Other radio controls on the wheel are on the top right. I just bought a Lincoln MKZ with all radio controls on 'top'. The Acadia volume controls are much better as …
  • My wife and I took an Enclave test drive today---nice. Checked the sticker afterward----approx. $37K. But there was a hand written add-on for 'market conditions'---$4,000. This dealer is in Houston. No, thanks.
  • Can't comment on all of your concerns, but when parking on an incline: * First set the emergency brake * Put the trans. into N. * Take your foot off of the brake and let the car move so that the emerg. brake is holding the car. * Put the trans…
