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.

problem #1

Jul 172008

Acadia 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 GMC Acadia xlt2. The contact stated the passenger air bag would intermittently shut off while the passenger seat was occupied. The contact stated the failure would occur most frequently in warmer temperatures and less frequently during winter months. The dealer advised the contact that the passenger would have to be over 100 pounds in order for the air bag sensor to register the seat as occupied and for the air bag to engage. The vehicle was taken to the dealer three times in regards to the failure yet the dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 3,000 and the current mileage was 25,000. Updated 09/27/10 updated 10/04/10
