We currently own a GMC Acadia 2007. It is a great car and fits our family well. We have had several set backs while owning this vehicle. There has been several recalls on not only our 2007 but on other years as well. We also had to have our transmission replaced two years ago. We have almost finished paying it off. We have our fingers crossed that this will be the last vehicle for us for a while. Praying for no more recalls.
We use Hotwire for our last minute get out of town "getaways". We have always received a great deal on a 4 star hotel. You don't know exactly the hotel you are staying at until after you have "booked" but anything with a 3 or 4 star has always been excellent for us.
