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.

2008 GMC Acadia Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 302009


  • 21,000 miles


I own 2008 GMC Acadia. On two occasions the weekend of Nov 28, 2009 once when I was driving, separately when wife driving, after the car was put in park and the ignition turned off, key removed, the car rolled backwards several feet until the brake was applied. Took the car to dealer service who could not replicate and expressed disbelief there was an issue. Surfed web and found NHTSA recall id# 09V073000 on 2009 Acadia. The recall is exactly what's happening with my 2008 Acadia. Just called GM 866# and they denied that the 2009 Acadia recall existed. Please help and get GM to recall the 2008 Acadia's with same issue as 2009.
