Odor smell can be fixed easily. The problem is that the in-coming air vents are designed under the hood in front of windshield. While most (old) cars have these vents visible outside, so air is usually dried. However, Acadia, may include its other siblings like Buick Enclave, Chevrolete Traverse, and Saturn Outlook, have these vents under the hood. When using re-circlulating air conditioner, there may have some air water still remain in there. After some times, it causes smelling like mildew. So, if you open the hood, spray some water into these vents to flush out. Then turn the a/c fan (without a/c on), you should notice that mostly smell are gone. To even make it better, wait util vents are dried, then spray just little air refreshment into these vents. Hope this trick will fix your odor smell problem

Traded in my 07 Acadia for a 2011 Acadia with the trailer hitch. My 07 had a cover on the bumper that you removed to reveal the receiver,on the2011 there was no cover. Did they do away with the cover? Anyone out there own a 2011 with the towing package? Does it have the cover?

I bought a 2011 Acadia Denali with Nav and Rear entertainment. I love the car with the exception of gas mileage. Last week i ended up renting a minivan for a trip and was able to appreciate the guidelines on the rear camera. The guidelines on the screen gives perspective with how far you are as well as if you are parking straight or no. I was surprised that many cars have that feature and fully loaded Acadia lacks that. Blindspot indicators are yet another new features in the car i think are very useful.
Anyhow, I have heard that 2012 has those but am not able to confirm it. Does anyone know if some software upgrade is possible that would allow guidelines to be on the rear camera?
For those who don't know what i am referring. Please click the URL below to see the picture. Even a hyundai has it...here is a p

What gives with all these Captain's Chairs? Dealer's lots are inundated with these things. Alas, you'd be hard pressed (if at all) to find a 60/40 SmartSlide 2nd-row back seat amongst them. Some of us tire kickers are actually traditionalists who could give a hoot for Captain's Chairs, preferring a full-across SmartSlide back seat. Access to the 3rd row is excellent. And with a bonus: You've now got an 8 seater -- a freebee option. But GM has made Captain's Chairs the default seating -- a 7 seater. For the dealers to order the 8 seater -- the no-charge SmartSlide option -- requires a check in the box. We traditionalists extend our thanks.
