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.

Acadia 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


The contact owns a 2011 GMC Acadia. While driving approximately 50 mph, the vehicle stalled and failed to restart after several attempts. The vehicle was towed to a dealer for diagnostic testing and the contact was informed that the vehicle was low on fuel. The contact was unaware that the vehicle was low on fuel due to an inaccurate display on the fuel gauge. The technician stated that the fuel gauge failed and the fuel tank needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 60,000. Updated 12/17/14

My car skips as if the engine is not getting enough gas. I will be driving along and the Acadia will shake and do a little skip jump. It does this at least a couple of times a week. I also have to constantly add oil to the truck even when I am 1000 miles out from my next oil change.
