9. GMC Acadia
The GMC Acadia SUV first hit the market in America in 2006 and is still in its first generation of production. It is GMC’s first crossover SUV and is the first unibody vehicle from the automaker. Last year at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show, GMC unveiled its updated 2013 Acadia with a redesigned front end, rear lift gate, and improved interior.
One of the major issues Consumer Reports found on the GMC Acadia in its 2009 testing was the transmission’s reluctance to downshift at certain times. As for its reliability, the Acadia was vastly improved in the 2011-2012 model years, though from 2007-2010 it ranked worse in the following categories: Engine Major, Engine Minor, Engine Cooling, Transmission Major, Transmission Minor, Drive System, Electrical System, Climate System, Suspension, Squeaks and Rattles, Power Equipment, and Audio System.
