Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

We have had water leaking in through our third row lights, and through the 3rd row seat belts, and under the dash when it rains. The car is usually in a tilt when this happens (front up), and it gets worse as I drive. I can usually hear the water sloshing around. I took it to our local dealership and they stated the drain tubes were clogged, so they unclogged them. I spent $350, and 2 days later, when we had a big rain, it was leaking even more than ever. It is currently back at the dealership where they are water testing yet again (this makes the 3rd time I have taken it for this issue). I received a phone call this morning, and they stated it was the back moonroof that is not properly sealed, so they are taking it out, and going to reseal everything. This is costing me another $900.

Acadia 6-cyl

  • miles
I purchased my 2007 GMC Acadia in April 2011 used from carmax. On May 6, 2011, I had in bring it in because I noticed water and loud wind noise. They had told me that the gasket seal on the sunroof had to be replaced because that is where the water was leaking from into the headliner and into my car. After that I still had the same issues but had no time to bring it to get fixed. The water has leaked from the moonroof area, from the reading light on the third row, from front diver and passenger door airbags, from the passenger seatbelt area, and from the headliner above the middle row. On July 7, 2012 the leaking happened again so I called GM. They said that the recall or customer satisfaction drain tube extenders were done on 2-9-09 at 26,139 miles and that the tubes may be clogged. I was told I should take it in to a GMC dealership to see what the problem was. I took it in on July 12, 2012 and was told that it was the sunroof gasket that needed to be changed and that the tubes were not clogged. They could see where it was coming from the seal. So it cost me $240 to have that fixed and GM said they would not help pay because the issue had been resolved with the drain tube extenders. I got my vehicle back on July 16, 2012 the GM district specialist asked me if I was satisfied with the work and I told him I was not sure because it had not rained again yet. Well, on July 19, 2012 it rain and the $240 I paid to the have problem fixed by replacing the sunroof gasket seal still has not fixed the problem.this is very disappointing and not safe because of the electrical and airbags that are getting wet with water. Will my airbags work in an accident since they have had water coming from where it says airbag!

2008 Saturn outlook (same as GMC Acadia, Buick enclave and Chevy traverse) the headlamp wiring harness as designed is likely and does got so hot that the wiring clip to the bulb burns/scorches. It renders the headlamp very intermittent and then fails. The GM P/N is 20858015. It is a $49 part... and a $200+ install due to the ridiculous complexity of getting to the headlamp and that it goes back into the car. Recall is very much necessary.
