Several Acadia owners are getting around 10 -12 city and about 16-18 Hwy. That's really bad.

When I read the Acadia.net location, you will see some common issues mention here (Water leak, headlight wiring harness and Transmission issues.

A better site I would look at is the acadiaforum.net and the sister sites enclaveforum.net, traverseforum.net, and saturnoutlookforum.net. funkar is right that the problems were across the board on all the Lambdas. Gas mileage is a touchy subject as most of the problems depend on the driving habits of the owner. In town I get 13 to 14 because there is not a lot of highway driving in town here, lots of stop and go, so on... On the highway I get 22 to 28 depending on the conditions. This is what I get on my 09 Acadia with the 3.6 DI engine that I got on my non DI engine in the Outlook. I have been trouble free except for the steering shaft noise on my 09, which I also had on my 07 Outlook.
