Consumer Reports gave the label “Never Buy” to 30 used cars. Today, we’re going to caution you about:The GMC Acadia.
Every GMC vehicle in existence turned up on the list of unreliable cars of the past decade. GMC Acadia SUVs from model years 2007 to 2014 took the dishonor of being worst of the bunch.
