Within the first week I had replaced a headlight(150 alignment and 4 new brakes(900 bonnie screams discount tickets and now 90 days later-I've had the steering rack lock up quite a few times-took it to the GM dealership-they said it was the rack and pinion and struts and bearings.
Sent me home with win a kia sorento "frozen struts".
Said 1247 days ago I have a 2009 GMC Acadia SLT which developed intermittent steering issues.Have not had it replaced yet since it will cost at least 1600.Said 1595 days ago I have purchased a used 2010 Chevy Traverse and have had nothing but problems.They stated they are aware of the issue's with the Traverse.Took it to GMC dealership and was told the steering gear box will need replaced which will cost 1260 for labor and parts.Said 589 days ago My 2009 Acadia is making horrible noises when turning.At slow speeds we have no power steering.This happened as I was going around a curve.A problem costing almost 5,000.Talked to GM and got a case number, I need to take it to a dealership to have it "diagnosed". .
Said 1544 days ago I have a 2008 Buick Enclave, I have the same issure with the steering making a whinning noise.
I contact GM service center on this issue as well.As I am seeing, many other have the same issue.I also sent a long winded e-mail to, and am waiting for a response.Extended Warranty will cover replacement of the power steering pump itself, but I have to pay for the repair "kit" for the other components that will need replacing in order to prevent the pump from failing again.This could have caused an accident had an uncoming vehicle been any closer and potentially harmed to pregnant women.Immediately replaced pump and steering gear at the dealer to the sum of 1999.In July 2013 the engine failed and had to be replaced.Has this law suit been settled?
Bill will be apx 1000.00, called GM they paid for the diagnostic and then wouldn't help cover any other cost.
The engine light did not come on until I got off the express way.
