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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: Ahh, the ole' sophomore slump. The 2008 Acadia suffers from widespread transmission failure around 75,000 miles.

Acadia SLE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles


No audible sounds at all inside the vehicle. Not hearing the radio is not so bad sometimes, but not being able to hear when your blinkers are operating, the back up warning signal, or when doors are open is a problem. Somewhat of a safety issue for sure. I figure it's just the sound system itself. Amplifier maybe. Everything else works. Radio comes on, blinkers do blink, back up warning lights work. Just no sound. Fuses to all components have been checked. All good. Haven't had time to take it to my dealer. I'm sure they'll be able to fix it, but at what cost not being under warranty. Have seen that multiple others like myself have experienced this also. Has anyone had this fixed? At what cost? Surprised there is no recall for this.
