2007 acadia,my transmission die on Oct 2012 is been almost 6 months, that I been with no car, I did not have money to fix it and GMC did not care.
the insurance stop a month before the transmission fail.
The lemon said I need 3 repairs from the dealer, i only have 2 reported. because I take it a lot of times but GMC only report oil change an car wash.
so I do not qualified for nothing. I still making my payments and have no car.
waiting for a recall an nothing. by the way I almost die in freeway and the acadia have almost all the isssues that were posted on the web.
I do not know if by posting will help a tall.

#556 of 798 How to cut cost?
Mar 23, 2013 (3:08 pm)
I see a bunch of us GMC Acadia owners (soon to be ex owner) with tranny issues. We were having issues had a tune up on the tranny yesterday and the damn thing just stopped running on 2 hours ago on the interstate. It's completly dead.
I bought ours used from a GMC worker with 64K miles and full faith that things were GTG. In 6 months we had to put in a new timing chain and all the fixens. 98k miles, Now the tranny goes out 106k miles.
Is GMC going to do anything about this besides sending me a bill for the fix? This is a hugh flaw with so many people with the same issue.

It's sitting at a dealership parking lot I had it towed to. If GMC is willing to help a loyal GM owner I'm all ears.
An email reply was sent with requested information. Please respond ASAP!
#559 of 798 2007 SLT FWD Acadia, trans gone at 60k
Mar 31, 2013 (5:34 am)
2007 SLT FWD Acadia, at 5 years 10 month (60,670 miles) I was told my transmissions is shot and I will have to pay for a new one.
Before I was told my transition is bad, I still fewer than 60k but just over the 5 years, SUV would shimmy under load and normally about 30 mph and then it would go away. I changed my own sparkplugs, and air filter, this did nothing.
Engine light came on, coming back from a 3.5hr drive, pulled into a rest stop, and when I pulled out onto the highway from the ramp I had floored the car and just made it up to speed in time before cars rear ended me, something was slipping / had no power when stepping on the gas.
Took to the GM dealer who will later tell me my transmission is gone.
I explained I have only been driving GM / Pontiac for 29 years straight (could be in a commercial for being a loyal GM owner), and going to the same dealer for most all of those years.
After two weeks of working on the case both with dealer and Customer Service, I ended up paying $2,500 for a factory transmission, and told trans is a 3 years or until I hit 100k.
The person working on my case, comes back to me and made it seem bad that I changed my own oil, got some other payment help with the car right after warranty were GM paid 50% for the issue, I am thinking how does that have anything to do with my transitions that is no good at 60K and reading a ton of post with others having the same issue.
Just wanted to post my case, as I do not think I should have to pay for what GM know is an issue. Told re-imbursement is a case by case.
Not a recall, told recall are for safety.

Well, getting rear ended because your transmission failed IS a safety issue. My transmission failure almost got me killed in Corte Madera on the 101 Freeway. That was the SECOND time the transmission failed and only reading 80K on the odometer. It failed the first time at 40K but I was lucky it was on a lightly traveled two-lane road. Will these bailout-happy cowards at GM ever take responsibility for this? Never again GM. It's a personal campaign of mine to make sure I tell everyone I know not to buy GM. Hope you go bankrupt again and no bailout this time.

I too have a personal campaign to make sure everyone knows not to buy a GM, I'm even contemplating writing in on the windows of my Acadia. hmm I may get the guts any day now. Especially since its sitting out in the driveway with a tarp over it so the roof don't leak!!! Again!
#562 of 798 Another Transmission Failure for the Forum

My 2008 Acadia SLT with 81,??? miles almost claimed 6 lives this weekend on I10 in Lousiana after not shifting correctly then snatching my azz from the front seat to back all while a being almost ran over by a 18 wheeler. I'm planning on calling the dealership tomorrow to have it taken in and checked out but by what I've been reading that has me a little skeptical about them actually fixing this vehicle. I'm hoping for the best as for right now. I will know more tomorrow if I will need to find a idiot to purchase it from me so I can put my family in a dependable and safe vehicle.
