Pros

A multi-passenger vehicle with soft, car-like styling; roomy interior; comfortable ride; fuel efficiency; top safety ratings


Model Highlights

The 2012 Acadia is available in three trims: the base SL, the mid-range SLE, the uplevel SLT and the luxury Denali. Each is available with either front- or all-wheel drive.

All trims are powered by a 3.6L V6 engine with direct fuel injection, which delivers 288 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque at 3400 rpm. A 6-speed automatic transmission is the only transmission available.

The Acadia comes with variable-effort rack-and-pinion steering and a low center of mass for stable cornering. The 4-wheel independent suspension allows for a compliant ride and a maximum towing capacity of up to 5,200 pounds, comparable to some truck-based mid-size SUVs.

Safety was given priority in the Acadia's engineering and feature list. Stabilitrak electronic stability control with rollover mitigation technology, is standard, as is anti-lock brakes, panic brake assist and six airbags, including head-curtain side bags that cover all three rows of seating.

An extremely roomy interior is one of the Acadia's strengths. The three rows provide seating for up to seven or eight, depending on whether buyers opt for captain's chairs or 60/40-split bench seat for the second row. The bench slides fore and aft for easier access to the third row or added seating space. There are plenty of bins and cubbies all around, as well as ten cup holders.

The Acadia's look is quite different between trims, thanks to a wide range of wheel offerings. SL models get 18-inch wheels, the SLE upgrades to 18-inch machined aluminum wheels, SLT trims receive 19-inch machined aluminum wheels. Denali trims come with chrome 20-inch wheels. Denalis also get trim-specific fender flares, rocker moldings, sill plates plus a special grille.

The base SL models are well-appointed and include keyless entry, cruise control, front and rear air conditioning and MP3-compatible CD audio. The SLE trim adds an upgraded 6-speaker stereo, power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a rearview camera system. The SLT trim adds climate control, 3-zone air conditioning, premium Bose sound system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable and heated side mirrors and a power liftgate. The top-of-the-line Denali adds a heavy-duty cooling system and trailering equipment, dual panoramic sunroofs, quiet sound insulation, heads-up display and automatic up/down power windows.

Noteworthy options include a DVD entertainment system, leather upholstery and a navigation system.


Model News

For 2012, fog lamps are standard, even on the base model. Otherwise, the Acadia is back, largely unchanged.


Value Writeup

Style meets practicality with the GMC Acadia, which is closely related to the Buick Enclave and Chevy Traverse. At 205 inches long, the Acadia is larger than many crossover rivals, like the Ford Edge or Toyota Highlander.

The 2012 GMC Acadia has a smooth eye-catching exterior, highlighted by the big twin-port, chrome-rimmed front grille and projector-beam headlights -- a look intended to fit into the new corporate look of GM.

The Acadia is once again a Top Safety Pick from The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and it once again receives ?excellent' ratings in federal government crash tests. MSRP starts at just under $33,000. Mileage performance is 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with the front-wheel drivetrain and 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway in all-wheel drive form.

Summary
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2009-2014 Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured April 14, 2008, through May 14, 2014, Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured June 6, 2008, through May 14, 2014, and GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured April 9, 2008, through May 14, 2014, and 2009-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles manufactured April 14, 2008, through March 18, 2010. In the affected vehicles, the flexible steel steel cable that connects the seatbelt to the front outboard seating positions may fatigue and separate over time.

Consequence
If the steel cable becomes fatigued and separates, the seatbelt may not properly restrain the seat occupant increasing the risk of an injury in a crash.

General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, repair and replace the lap pretensioner, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-462-8782 (GMC), 1-800-553-6000 (Saturn). General Motors recall number for this campaign is 14187.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2008-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia and 2009-2013 Chevrolet Traverse and 2008-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles. In the affected vehicles, increased resistance in the driver and passenger seat mounted side impact air bag (SIAB) wiring harnesses may result in the SIAB and seat belt pretensioners not deploying in the event of a crash.

Consequence
Failure of the side impact air bags and seat belt pretensioners to deploy in a crash increase the risk of injury to the driver and front seat occupant.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected harness connections with soldered connections, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Buick owners may contact the owner center at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet owners at 1-866-694-6546, Saturn at 1-800-553-6000, and GMC owners at 1-866-996-9463. GM's number for this recall is 14030. Note: Vehicles repaired as part of Customer Satisfaction Campaign 10085 and special coverage 10335 have already had the subject condition repaired and therefore are not included in the safety recall.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured January 3, 2007, to February 29, 2012, 2009-2012 Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured July 6, 2008, to February 29, 2012, 2007-2012 GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured September 15, 2006, to February 29, 2012, and 2007-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles manufactured August 17, 2006, to March 18, 2010. The affected vehicles, equipped with the power liftgate option, have gas struts that hold the power liftgate up when open. These struts may prematurely wear and the open liftgate may suddenly fall.

Consequence
If the open liftgate unexpectedly falls, it may strike a person, increasing their risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the power liftgate actuator motor control unit so that the motor will prevent the rapid closing of the lift gate, free of charge. Owners were mailed interim notices on August 3, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782, and Saturn customer service at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 15240.
