2008 GMC AcadiaVisitor, Minneapolis, MN, August 28, 2013 10:49My family and I bought this 2008 GMC Acadia when it had 34000 miles on it. It was and is one of the biggest purchase mistake we made. At 36,000-ish miles the daylight burned out twice. At 38,250 miles the brake started to make noises. Brake fluids were flushed but that did not make anything better. Some parts of the brake was not right and the dealership covered 50% of the parts cost at the time. Then when returning from the dealership after the brakes were fixed, the steering wheel started to make clicking noises when turning. Steering wheels were fixed at the customers expense. Around 42K, the passenger seat would not glide up and down and was fixed at $900. At 50K, the air conditioning worked only for the driver's side, the rest of the car vents blew hot air. At 62K the transmission failed and was replaced with a new one. Now at 63K, the air conditioning system has failed once again and is blowing out hot air in this very hot weather. So far, the reply I have been getting from the dealership on every complaint is that there has been no recall on anything for this car. This car definitely needs to have to be recalled completely and SHOULD be taken off the market. I'm stuck with this car and its payment. We had to bear all the responsibility of all the fixtures with the exception of that one time where the dealership paid only 50% of the parts cost.
2008 GMC AcadiaVisitor, Westport, CT, April 10, 2013 11:48This car is a piece of junk. I was stuck on the side of the road with my 3 children in the car with a broken 35R clutch wave plate. Had to have the transmission rebuilt at 48k miles. The car had been driven less than 10k miles a year for 5.5 years. It is just 6 months out of warranty and GM is not honoring it. I would not recommend this car to anyone. THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE. CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT???
