I have been reading this forum for a long time in my rasearch for a new vehicle. To make a story short we ordered the car without test driving it just based on your reviews. We looked for a vehicle that will carry 7 people comfortable in long rides. We saw the Acadia first at San Fransisco car show and liked it. After that we heard more about the Buick flagship and we were pleasantly surprised by the pricing, not to mention that it is lot better looking than a minivan.
