Does anyone flat tow an Acadia? Would like pros and cons before purchasing. Considering a 2012 model.

We tow a 2014 and all we do is pull a couple of fuses, make sure the emergancy brake is off, tranny is in neutral and for good measure I turn off the radio and AC no problems what so ever.

Mowermech, I come in and read once in a while. I have gotten tired of people picking on other people. Been staying home because of the virus and got bored, so, here I am! Doing e learning with my 6th grade grand daughter. Man, I dont think I could pass 6th or 7th grade again!

The owners manual is your go to source for accurate information. A quick review of the 2012 Dinghy Towing guides says it should be flat towable. But to be aware of your hitch ratings as the Acadia comes in close to 5,000#
