GMC Acadia Water Leaks
My 08 Acadia started leaking 3 months after I bought it and was back at the dealership 24 days in the first year with 16 days being just for water leaks. They sealed windows and doors, unclogged drain tubes,performed the drain hose recall etc and the car has continued to leak.Even in a mild rain I can look up and watch water come through the sides of the sunroof. After a heavy rain the drivers seatbelt is wet when I pull it out and the carpet next to the seatbelt housing is damp. Yesterday after a heavy rain I got in the car and when I took off I heard a noise and looked in the rearview mirror to see water POURING out of the rear dome lights and back up sensor. The rear seats and carpet were soaked as well as the DVD remote and headphones that were back there. This makes 16 months my Acadia has leaked and there is no doubt that the car is full of mold. I tried dealing with GM customer service getting an offer of free oil changes for my trouble. I hired a lawyer who says I am well within the lemon guidelines and has filed a lawsuit against GM for a refund. GM has been dragging this out since Oct 08 hoping I will give up. Their latest offer is $4500 cash,I keep the Acadia,and I pay the $4000 in attorney fees. The dealership I bought the Acadia from showed no mercy on me which suprised me since they had been in business for over 40 years. They had my car at the end of Dec to take care of 9 problems. After 7 days they returned my car with most of the repairs not even attempted. They said they would pick up my car the following Monday to finish but never did. They kept putting me off over the phone then I read in the paper that they had sold out to the local Chevy dealer. The Chevy dealer says he only bought the assetts of the GMC dealership not their liabilities. No repairs have been done to my car since Dec 08 meaning I have lost 7 months of valuable warranty. This $44,000 Acadia looks great sitting in my driveway which is where it stays most because I am barely getting 10 mpg. After a year and a half of ownership I only have 10,400 miles because we can't take it anywhere.
If anyone from GM reads this post,you have made it clear that you don't care if I ever buy GM again. I don't know if you realize that my co workers,my friends and family and all my facebook connections hear about this on a regular basis. Good luck convincing them that "the new GM is different".
