Warranty

The Acadia comes with GM's three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty. In addition to the basic warranty, the Acadia comes with a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, five-year/100,000-mile roadside assistance, and six-year/100,000-mile rust/corrosion warranty.

Reviewers' experiences attest to the quality of the SUV's build. Says AutoWeek: "The biggest feeling I came away with from this truck was that it's substantial. No rattles, nothing felt loose--in fact, everything felt pretty tight." USA TODAY comments on the fact that the Acadia probably won't require much maintenance: "Spark plugs are good for 105,000 miles. Transmission fluid and engine coolant shouldn't need attention for 100,000 miles. Check around. You'll be surprised how many vehicles still recommend spark-plug changes and fluid replacement sooner."
