GMC Acadia Engine Problems
We purchased our '09 Acadia March 9th 2009
Two weeks after we got the car, I parked in the driveway. I left the keys in the ignition... not a big deal. As i was walking to the house, the Acadia beeped.. it locked itself, keys and all.
On December 31 we went to leave our house after the car had set for about 3 days. It was DEAD. nothing.. not even a glow of a dome light. We jump it and took it to the dealer the next day. No problem found
It died again on January 21 and we jumped it.. we didn't take it to the dealer simply cause they didnt find anything the time before.
We went to leave our house again on February 22 and it was DEAD. Once again it had been sitting for 3 days prior. We had it towed to the dealer while still dead. They had it for a week as we drove a little base model Vibe. The found NOTHING!
NOW FOR THE GOOD PART:
I was running into town last night (a 5 mile trip). I got on the on ramp for the highway. I got about 3/4 down the ramp and BOOM! In my rear view mirror all i could see was parts flying, oil, and smoke. Oh ya defiantly threw a rod through the side of the engine!
