problem #1

Feb 132009


  • 23,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 GMC Acadia. The contact stated that the side air bags suddenly deployed after turning the vehicle at approximately 2 mph. There were no warning indicators prior to the failure. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and they stated that it would take two weeks to repair. The contact was on a trip at the time, so she pushed the air bags back in and continued driving the vehicle. She took the vehicle to her local dealer and had it repaired. The manufacturer has not been notified. The current and failure mileages were approximately 23,000.
