Other than that, we have put a ton of miles on the car and the only problem we have had is that we need to change the tires. Left me stranded and was nearly hit by several vehicles including a concrete mixing truck. Ran fine when I brought it in and now does not run at all. Laura not sure of her last name has been the one to handle my case. Service tech preformed stating abnormal wear 114516 km I took the car in for service because the check engine light came on again. This car has been a headache since day one, literally. I have a friend who has owned a shop for 35 years and has worked on my car a couple of times.
The vehicle was inspected by a dealer and they advised him that they altered the transmission so it was performing according to its design. She has reacted this way twice and I am not going to allow that. Mine is not safe or fixed. The engine had to be replaced at 31,000 miles. Maybe this one will not lock me inside of my own vehicle. I work on these 2 vehicles constantly.
If there is an issue with the engine we should just replace it due to the cost of whatever could be the problem and no guarantees it will not happen again. I wish I had the old rusty vehicles back. I may go for a Honda Pilot next time, after I do lots of research. When transmission was dropped, dealer determined fault to be the Torque Converter. This vehicle was my pride and joy so to speak. CarMax replaced transmission under their warranty. The fuse boxes are made of layers of flimsy metal sheets so the sockets for the fuses wear out.
I remove the keys, go to get out of the car and my door will not open. Dealer found source of leak to be a bad Torque Converter. Transmission fluid dripping from bottom of the vehicle. Replaced both hoses even though 2nd hose was not leaking. Plus that warranty only covers the transmission, not the labor charges that you'll have to pay to install the replacement. I traveled to purchase my car because I was unable to find exactly what I was looking for in my hometown. Repaired twice for the same issue, when sold it was still intermittently not shifting out of 1st gear.
I drove 5 hours from my hometown. I put the car into park. This car has less than 100,000 miles on it although I know that is high for the year, a brand new transmission for a fairly new car is extreme. So sorry about my luck. I have not been able to travel in this vehicle because I refuse to get on the highway with my child and breakdown in the middle of nowhere. He thinks maybe when they put the engine in they pinched the wiring harness or it's something electrical that is causing the misfiring since it is random. There's one of these solenoids for each gear, and it's activated by sending current through the coil of wire that's wrapped around it.
Transmission would no longer find a gear and engine revved uselessly. If you can't do the job then say that you can't do it. Car in limp mode, but next day fine. I have also called in and requested a manager call me back through the customer service line and still have not received a phone call from anyone. The warranty company is worthless, says the problems are on me, and they wont repair them. Of course, paint only covered under warranty if 36,000 miles or 3 yrs, which I don't qualify for. Which is not possible due to were it is parked.
The comfort and passenger compartment is great. Mind you I just paid 879. Laura not sure of her last name has been the one to handle my case. Also the car started misfiring again. Of course, paint only covered under warranty if 36,000 miles or 3 yrs, which I don't qualify for. I have a defect in the paint on the hood. Now our brand new vehicle is once again a lemon and repeating the original issue.
I was told by the mechanic that this is extremely common for the 08 Acadias and it was not uncommon for this particular car to go through several transmissions before reaching the 100,000 mile mark. I bought it with no warranty from a reputable car dealership close to me in Fishers Indiana. Other than that, it is very roomy inside and I feel very high up when driving so that gives me the safety feeling. We had some minor issues here and there but nothing too bad. The consumer shouldn't have to go thru this nightmare.
It has been an absolute nightmare. Whatever the case the car has been a piece of junk from the beginning. Dealer saw that transmission was leaking. I have suffered enough with this car and now the suffering and unsatisfactory continues with the people they choose to hire. Easy to purchase at the dealership.
You will have to sit in service room till we figure out the 33 codes that came back on it. All 6 ignition coils have been replaced not all at once. The air system decided to only blow hot air on the driver side, possible deflector failure. Has there been any recalls regarding this matter. Stabili-trac and traction control went off-line and transmissionwent out of gear and would not re-engage. The instrument panel fuse box is under the dash. It seemed like a great vehicle at first.
