Acadia

  • miles
I bought the Acadia new in 2009. At 15K miles cd player turns on at night by itself and runs battery completely down had to go buy a battery charger to get the car started you can't move the car when the battery is dead, a re program fixed the cd player. 35-40K miles dvd player will not work, re program did not work, dealer replaced dvd player. 40K miles water pump went out, 40 K miles wheel alignment went out and wore the front tires to the cord, no mention of compensation for two new tires at a cost of $500. 10K miles further another set of tires had to be replaced at the same cost, this is after dealer wheel alignment,5 K miles more and the alignment had to performed again. Just checked again at 5 K miles more and tires are starting to feather again. At 60K miles one of the driving lights went out. The dealer wants over $100 to replace the bulb, seems as though the front end needs to come off to replace a lightbulb that used to cost a few dollars. The paint has started to peel off the buttons that control the air conditioner fan. The gas mileage is not as advertised. I was told that after 10K miles it would get better, that was 50 K miles a go. Over all this car is a real expensive pile of crap. I would not recommend the Acadia to any one.
