    Update on buying new vehicle.

    I posted awhile back about what vehicle to buy. I got a lot of excellent suggestions and reviews. I went to a quilt retreat last week and found the perfect vehicle. LOL. A another retreater asked me to drive for her as she felt dizzy. I loved her SUV. It had everything I was looking for. I am now the proud owner of a new GMC Arcadia Denali.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Is it a Crossover or the full size SUV?

    It's listed as midsize luxury crossover. Mine has a fancy name for the color but it's just boring white. LOL

    Hope it works out for you since GM has had so many problems.

    What a perfect opportunity to test it out with no pressure. Glad it worked out for you!

    I checked and rechecked at Consumer Reports, reviews from owners, my insurance company, and the mechanic that we use. All said a great vehicle as far as they know and I trust the dealership owner. I know his mother and mother in law, they are in my guild. I got the quilter discount too. LOL No problem with financing, don't care about GMC money problems. I paid cash.

    Just to be clear, it is NOT called a GMC ACARDIA Denali ?? It is called an Acadia Denali. Just want GMC to finally get some credit. They are a very good looking vehicle & if I'm right, from what you say the colour may be that fancy white but with a "mother of pearl" finish. Very luxurious, rich colour & it cost much more than a regular paint colour. Good luck with your purchase. We wanted to buy one also but here in Canada they are very expensive & a little more vehicle than what we need.

    Mine has a big GMC logo on the front grill. There is another version of it called Terrain Denali, a smaller SUV.
