Benefits of Driving a 2008 GMC Acadia Sport Utility Crossover

The 2008 GMC Acadia is an attractive alternative to a variety of traditional people-haulers, ranging from minivans to full-size truck-based SUVs. It has a quiet, refined ride, a very carlike interior, and a full array of luxury-oriented options. It also boasts better fuel economy than other full-size sport utility vehicles, along with a better roster of safety features on board. The Acadia can also provide seating for up to eight.

What's new for 2008?

The GMC Acadia was an all-new model for 2007, and thus receives no major changes for the 2008 model year. There is now a rearview camera system available on SLT trim.

Model Strengths

  • Ride and refinement
  • roomy interior
  • ample cargo capacity
  • safety features.

Model Review

The GMC Acadia pairs carlike driving behavior, including a smooth ride and sharp handling, with SUV hauling capability. Although the Acadia has a lower, sleeker profile, it borrows design cues from GMC's larger Yukon SUV family, including the prominent polished aluminum roof rails and projector-beam headlamps.

2008 GMC Acadia: What's New

Source: The Car Connection

The Acadia crossover returns for its second model year with a few changes.

The lineup of GMC crossovers includes SLE and SLT trims. All Acadias comes standard with a new, 275-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic, and is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive system has been updated for the 2008 model year; it's now dubbed Active On Demand.

Third-row seating and room for up to eight passengers is available. GM's Smart Slide second-row seating system aids passenger access to the third-row seats. This vehicle offers 116.9 cubic feet of cargo space when the second- and third-row seats are folded and 19.7 cubic feet behind the third-row seat when it's in the upright position.

Standard and optional equipment includes heated outside mirrors, intermittent rear wiper, ultrasonic parking assist, power liftgate, extended-range remote vehicle starting system, heated windshield washer fluid, a power-operated tilt-and-slide sunroof with rear skylight, DVD entertainment system, DVD-based navigation system, and Bose 5.1 Surround Sound Audio system. The Acadia also offers an exclusive heads-up display (HUD) that projects instrument readouts and other features onto the windshield for easy, eyes-on-the-road reference.

All Acadias come standard with seat-mounted side-impact airbags for front seat passengers, full-row curtain airbags, and GM's StabiliTrak traction/stability control system with rollover mitigation technology, as well as a tire-pressure monitoring system. New for 2008 is a Panic Brake Assist feature, which puts maximum brake pressure when it senses an emergency stop.

Other minor changes for 2008 include a new second-row console and captain's chairs option; standard XM satellite radio; and refined traction and stability control. A back-up camera is also available with the navigation system.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

GMC Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

2-year/24,000-Mile¹ CPO Scheduled Maintenance Plan.

12-Month/12,000-Mile² Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty.

5-year/100,000-Mile³ Powertrain Limited Warranty for model years up to 2014.
