Letter from congressman rigell on behalf of constituent re recall general motor vehicle. The consumer stated a year after the he purchased the vehicle, the engine light illuminated. He took the vehicle to the dealer to have it serviced. A few months later, the light illuminated again. The dealer informed him, the fuel system needed to be cleaned. After the oil was changed, the tire light illuminated, the ac stopped working, the windows were inoperative and the hood and trunk would not stay up or down.

For the last few weeks, the fuel light in my wife's 2010 Acadia will not go off. We took it to the dealership. They told us there was too much alcohol in the fuel, @ 12%, and if it reached 15%, they would need to drop the fuel tank. They said to run a couple of tanks of 93 octane through the vehicle and it should correct itself. After 8 tanks of 93 octane at $3/gallon, the light it still on. Gas stations do not readily advertise or display the % of alcohol in their fuel, much less if alcohol is even in the fuel. It seems a bit disingenuous on the part of GM to have this problem with the Acadia, knowing how alcohol is used in fuel these days. We paid a lot of money for this vehicle, but can't afford to run 93 octane through it the rest of the time we own it. I've been a big supporter of GM, but this is very frustrating and incredibly disappointing.
