Will be going to BBB arbitration hearing 10/08 for refund on our 08' Outlook. Since 10/07 the vehicle has 55 days out of service, from an engine rebuild to a passive airbag deployment. Look Out Honda, here I come.

I have read quite enough about GM's quality issues, especially with the Outlooks. Thanks for your post, you've helped me with my decision. Toyota here I come!

Do not know about what you have read but I have had one issue on my Enclave. the right rear taillamp chrome strip was gone one day. Assume a carwash pulled it off. The supplier must not have applied it incorrectly. Other than that it has been great.

#2995 of 2998 Major problems - Engine, Transmission, AC, etc
Jul 15, 2009 (6:15 am)
Our Acadia was purchased new in May 2007. A year later I couldn't believe the catastrophic failures the vehicle had. Our history now includes a transmission rebuild, 4 transmission leak repairs, a failed batter, a failed air conditioner part that caused water to drain inside the car in pint size quantities, a failed water pump, and the last straw was that the engine just had to be removed for another major failure. All of the service has been through GMC dealers and warranted, but I have no confidence in the vehicle for my family to drive it. I tried to get help trading it from GM, but once they had my money that didn't care. This was a fully loaded $42,000 vehicle that has spent 8 weeks in the shop with the engine , transmission, water pump, AC system, and battery all having major failures. It is my problem now. I shouldn’t have to trade in a 2 year old car. It looks like that is going to cost me $10,000 out of pocket to trade it.
I would be extremely careful before looking at the GMC Acadia, Chevy Traverse, Saturn Outlook, or Buick Enclave they are all the same vehicle.

Did you look into your state's Lemon Law to see if you qualified for a buyback with all those problems?

What did the dealership say when you point out these many service visits you say occurred?
#2998 of 2998 2007 Gmc Acadia

Just bought my used 2007 acadia beginning of June 2009. Had a battery problem first day. Just brought it in for an oil leak, seems like this is the 2nd time it has had an oil leak. Dealer called today and said now there is a problem with power steering unit. I have a bad feeling about where this may be headed.
