- "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." -- AutoWeek
- "Maintenance: Not much. The engine uses timing chains instead of belts. ... Many Japanese models use belts, which are quieter but eventually need replacing." -- USA Today
- "And it's not that the Acadia is not a quality machine. Actually, after a week behind the wheel of one, I thought it was exceptional on several fronts. I understand the idea of wanting a roomy, well-equipped SUV with good handling characteristics, made by a GM division with a reputation for building sturdy light trucks." -- Sacramento Bee
- "Build quality has been good, but one test model suffered from a rattle in the rear seating area." -- Consumer Guide
