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.

This is a problem involving the liftgate of the trunk because I almost got crushed on it as I was trying to load grocery.

I discovered I had a flat tire so I got the jack from the back of the Acadia removed the spare tire started jacking the car up just as it reached enough clearance to remove the flat tire, I removed put it aside, I turned around to grab the spare, the weight of the car collapsed the jack and the front of the car hit the pavement.

problem #2

The car has unpredictably and repeatedly gone into a reduced engine power state and subsequent stall on at least 8 occasions necessitating an emergency pull over. The failure occurred 6 times when slowing to turn or approaching a light/stop sign and twice on the highway at speeds in excess of 60 mph. Messages at the time of the issue have varied but consistently indicate engine issue, reduced engine power. Variably we will see messages about stabilization control, traction control being off or needing to be checked. We have avoided accidents on multiple occasions. GM has been unable to identify and correct the issue on repeated visits nor can they guarantee that it won't happen again. Since the car loses engine power and stalls both at highway and slower speeds, it presents an extreme safety hazard not only to occupants of the car but to surrounding vehicles. We refuse to have the car on the road given the enormity of the risk associated with driving it at this point. GM was initially responsive to our concerns at the first visit to the dealership but has not returned three separate calls over the past three weeks. Forums on-line regarding the Acadia and several other models show that many other people have been experiencing this same issue over multiple model years. GM needs to resolve the cause before someone is killed.

First incident: Vehicle engine turned off(stalled)while backing out of parking spot. Car lost all power: Brakes, steering, engine second incident: One week later, same incident: Vehicle engine turned off(stalled): Car lost all power, brakes, steering, engine, this time on highway exit ramp moving approx 35 mph. Very frightening experience. We contacted GMC and opened a case #[xxx] car has been to dealer who kept it for one week and could not duplicate the problem. They had no explanation or solution. Service manager, in fact, informed us that he "could have told us" he found a problem and solved it but that we should appreciate his honesty! in not being able to diagnose? we have no faith in this automobile without a definitive problem and solution.while dealer did supposedly run it through tests, no mention of recall nor of any idea as to why this occurred. On- line reports that a chassis control module could be short circuited by small metal fragments, possibly causing the vehicle to stall. Dealer did not address this nor locate it. This problem was posted by General Motors on October 1 2014, almost two weeks prior to the car going in for analysis. My wife and 16 year old daughter drive this vehicle and I am in fear of an accident or worse. Please help us.
