2008 GMC Acadia SUV SLT-2 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This car was great for the first two months. Then I had to get the transmission module replaced. A few months later an AC fan or something of the sorts went out causing my car to just chug and not run right. Then this last year my window controls went out, 10 MPG in town, power steering pump went out, front and rear suspension went out AND my subilitrack/awd went out. Sure did ride nice to begin with and I loved my interior gadgets but it was the biggest money pit ever. So glad to be out of it.

Review

We bought a used 2008 GMC Acadia in January of 2016. It had only 36,000 miles on it. Within the first day of driving it, the steering started squeaking and clicking. Took it back to the dealership and had it fixed even though they tried telling me that nothing was wrong. We've had issues with the headlights being cloudy, the tailgate struts failing, leaking water from air vents, and now a complete transmission failure. There was an extended special warranty on the transmission, but it expired 5/31/18. The warranty said 10 years or 120,000 miles. Our car is on its tenth year and has 81,000 miles on it. The dealership and GM said they wouldn't cover it even though it's a month past expiration. The real issue that we're having is that we received no notifications of any potential problems from GM and no notification from the dealer when we purchased it. After doing research, there are apparently issues with the ignition switch and airbags.

Review

ALL newer midsize SUVs and CARs that GMC are making have JUNK ENGINES!!!!!!! Its crap and youll never have an inexpensive fix. Headlights are CRAP ! Safety CRAP you have really bad blinds spots how these are made from the slides and REAR ! it made where youll have to use rear assist and that's CRAP. YOUVE BEEN WARNED. ACADIAS, TRAVERSE, EQUINOXS, ETC. JUST STAY AWAY FROM THEIR MIDSIZE CROSSOVER SUVs PERIOD! Especially if youre a single parent and poor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review

The TV commercials are correct when it states "Highest in initial quality." The SUV is quite, smooth ride, great storage, a billion cup holders, and comfortable. We do love the vehicle. We take great care of this vehicle. ...... Now the bad part: THERE IS NO QUALITY TO THE VEHICLE! Without any exaggeration, everything on this vehicle has just about broken. it is ridiculous how many things have broken and stupid stuff. For example, the vanity mirror covers no longer stay up when the sun visor is down. The vanity mirrors maybe were used once in a blue moon. The 3rd seat upholstery seam for the seat has come apart. We only use the third row when family comes to visit. From inside to outside, if you plan on owning this vehicle for longer than a lease period, expect it to fall apart. I will never purchase a GMC again.
