In your may issue, in the wrap up of the long term Acadia, you note that it's a replacement for GMs minivans.  How does it drive compared to an Odyssey or Sienna?

Good question...

I was impressed with the way our GMC Acadia drove when it was new but the ride and handling went downhill throughout the test. Our guess based upon driving impressions was that the rear dampers wore out. Our long-term Mazda CX-9 drove much better throughout the full test. That said, the Acadia is a bit bigger inside.

I still think the Odyssey is the best pick of the lot. It drives really well, gets better mpg, and has a ton of space inside. If you don't need all-wheel-drive, don't need to tow too much, and can handle the minivan image, it really is the best family hauler. I don't feel the Sienna is as nice as the Honda, either to drive or live with.
