2011 GMC Acadia Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 202015

Acadia SLT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 207,000 miles


I have several problems if anyone have an old recall for the water pump please email joneal2519@aol.com. Also engine light will not go off. then I hear a whining sound that the service center did not heard until the warranty was gone. I drive 3,000 miles a month to work so all of the recalls are unavailable to me because of my millage. I'm totally screwed. GMC said the water pump was not a recall. but I do remember that it was I just can't find it..

Acadia SL 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

I had the first issue with this Crap Utility Vehicle (CUV) at 30,000 miles with the trunk strut locking in the open position so it broke when my 9 year old closed the back. For the last 60000 miles, the traction control service light comes on intermittently. Then the water pump, AC discharge hose, and HVAC vent selector goes out at 80,000 miles. At 106,000 miles this lemon Acadia has an estimate for the battery, water pump, and HVAC control replacement for $1950. NOT. This is the most pathetic vehicle ever. Battery cable says made in China.

Funny how a 1990 Ford 460 engine is still running on the original engine with the original R12 in the AC and has over 466,000 miles without the $2000 rip off charges. Ironic how a 2007 Toyota has more miles than the Acadia and has had the driveshaft replaced but no other issues. I will need a payment made to Hudiburg GMC in OK for $300 so I can drive the pathetic GMC Acadia to the scrap yard. Oh, I forgot to mention the sticker was $32000 and it would be lucky after 3 years to get $12,000 on a trade in. NEVER again will I make the mistake of a GM product. 4057064427 is the account number lookup. I am unable to return the loaner vehicle until they are paid. ‪#‎ford‬ ‪#‎toyota‬ ‪#‎f350‬ ‪#‎fjcruiser‬
