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.

2011 GMC Acadia Owner Comments

problem #2

My 2011 GMC Acadia (denali) has now been taken into the dealership 3 times (and likely an upcoming 4th) due to the right front power door lock and window (and rear hatch) working intermittently over the past year. They have tried to replaced the door module and reprogrammed it. The next time, they replaced both the male and female terminals in the connector and applied some grease. Not exactly sure what they did the third time. My concern is that it just happened again although after 24 hours it was fine. I understand GM currently has a recall out for SUVS but for more older vehicles = fire, smoke, other are linked to electrical problems with the door unit. Just wondering if my vehicle is having the same issue even though its 5 years newer. There has been no recall on my vehicle as of yet.

The contact owns a 2011 GMC Acadia. The contact stated whenever the gear was shifted into the park position, the four automatic doors would unlock without intent. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer four times for the similar failure and they stated that the doors operated normally. In addition, the silver and chrome trim around the entire dashboard, and console area would obstruct the vision when sunlight made contact with it. The contact was in the process of notifying the manufacturer. The approximate failure mileage was 100. Updated 07/08/11 updated 3/15/12
