The 2017 GMC Acadia will introduce a rear seat reminder feature that helps drivers retrieve objects from the back of their vehicle, GM announced.

The Rear Seat Reminder works by monitoring the Acadia’s rear doors. The feature is intended to activate when either rear door is opened and closed within 10 minutes before the vehicle is started, or if they are opened and closed while the vehicle is running.

Under these circumstances, the next time the vehicle is turned off after a door activation, the Acadia is designed to sound five audible chimes and display a message in the driver information center that reads, “Rear Seat Reminder / Look in Rear Seat.”

The feature can't detect items in the backseat, so it is always important to check the rear seat prior to exiting the vehicle. The feature is standard on the 2017 Acadia.
