Biggest car mistake of my life!
By skippy99 on


2010 GMC Acadia SLT-1 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I bought a 2010 Acadia for my wife.
It had 56,000 miles on it when purchased.
Could have bought a Mercedes SUV for the price.
The problems I've had with it have been unbelievable!
Windshield leak damaged radio and A/C fan (window apparently always leaked), Power steering failed TWICE in 10k mi.
$1600 to replace a power steering pump!
A/C failed due to hose rubbing against chassis.
Transmission shift issues.
Brake issues.
It gets 14 MPG (same as my old 6.0 liter Yukon XL), you need a mirror to see the fuses, and in order to replace a headlight bulb, you need to remove the inner fender (wheel well) skirt!
Awful, Awful engineering design.

Don't do it!
Seriously, don't!

I received a steering pump notice and refund form in sept2014. It wasn't a recall but offered to fix. Mine was broken but dealership blamed it on something else. I hate this car and gmc. Call them about steering pump notice.
