Placed the vehicle in park, it was stationary and it rolled forward. Message in the info center said "shift to park". I was parking in a mall parking lot.this has occurred 5 times. I can push the gearshift back and forth and then it can be turned off and the message will disappear. I took it to the dealership and was told they are waiting on GM to see what can be done. It makes a sound when in motion at slow speeds on a city street like the back needs shocks. It seems to bounce more than it should.

The contact owns a 2017 GMC Acadia. While driving various speeds, the transmission hesitated to shift gears and the vehicle began to vibrate excessively. There were no warning indicators illuminated. The contact referenced GMC recall number 17109 (rear differential clutch control module). The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the struts and the motor mount needed to be replaced. Additionally, field testers determined that the vehicle was operating normally. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure, but did not assist. The manufacturer stated that the vehicle was operable. The approximate failure mileage was 209,000.

Less than 30 days of taking possession of the vehicle brand new, we noted a whine when you turned the steering wheel. We brought the veh in to dealershp and it was reported the airbag coil was wrapped around steering column causing the noise. The coil was replaced and veh returned to me. Within 24 hours the noise returned. This time they determined it was the front left strut and replaced. A brand new vehicle should not need a new strut. Dealership said they had another Acadia in for same problem
