The sensor reading light continues to come on but doesn't match the area its stating. Took car to dealership for service and lights displaying now won't go off. I have replaced tires and air in the tires light still on. Found that to much pressure is in tires and they may burst.

On April 2nd while driving home from work, was stopping at a stop light and all of the sudden the driver's seat just jerked like it was coming unbolted. It now makes a squeaking noise and the seat has give to it, like its not bolted down real tight. I fear it is very unsafe. We do not even drive the car every day. The main reason I have not repaired it yet is because GM has a history, of saying it is not a manufacturers issue. And I will have to pay for the repair. I have had to have it at the repair shop 4 times already for an air bag issue. Then had to take it in for a rusted fuse in one of the headlamps, another issue they told me was not a manufacturers problem and I had to pay for it. The original light bulb was still installed in the vehicle. Of course it was a manufacturers issue. GM also has many reasons for not making recalls on their vehicles. So at this point I feel I don't have many places to turn. I am very nervous about driving this vehicle that we pay good money for and GM does not want to take ownership for the issues with the product. So I am left with trying to research and see if anyone else has had this issue.

I have been having problems with my vehicle for a while now. The car will cut off in traffic I have gotten stuck in the seatbelt as well as today while I am trying to make a left the car would not accelerate as I was hitting the gas pedal I could have been killed. I have taken my vehicle to [xxx] on another occasion because I had just left the gas station filling the tank up I got in the truck pulled out of the gas station and the gas gauge started going up and down my overhead lights came on and the car just died out in 45 mph traffic I took it in and all they keep telling me is if they can't duplicate the problem they can not help me how is this safe number one number two I do not know when the vehicle is going to cut off. I have had the speedometer just go up and down as I'm driving as well as the radio would just start to shift from auxiliary to cd to radio without ever being touched. If I hit a pothole lights start flashing this is unacceptable. But I'm being told there is nothing that can be done because they can't replicate the problem how is this on my shoulders I'm paying for an extended warranty that is not worth the paper it's printed on. It has to be an electrical short or something they just do not want to repair. But I can not keep putting my families lives in danger driving this vehicle because they say they can not replicate the problem. This is dangerous and GMC will not help.

The contact owns a 2012 GMC Acadia. While stopped at a traffic light, the driver seat moved and adjusted on its own when the accelerator pedal was depressed. The seat moved backwards and further away from the steering wheel. The contact stated that the seat slid and tilted. The failure recurred several times. In addition, the contact stated that the vehicle made an unusually loud noise when the remote engine start feature was activated. The dealer was unable to diagnose the cause of the failures. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 10.
