GMC Quality - Or Lack of
I purchased a 2012 GMC Acadia Denali. The vehicle had a list price of over $53,000 so I had high expectations for quality. I had only purchased GM vehicles over my last 40+ years of driving and traded in a 2004 GMC Yukon Denali with 84,000 miles because I was concerned about dependability since the vehicle was getting up in age.
Well .. in the 1 1/2 years of owning the Acadia it has been in the shop almost 6 weeks over the course of the time that I've owned the vehicle. All of the service was warantee related. Today .. the vehicle is again in the shop because the driver'* seat moves! My dealer would not provide a loaner vehicle even though I have never asked for a loaner before. I called GM and they authorized the loaner. I have no idea that the loaner would cost me $132.00!
I am done with GM ... I have no confidence in the Acadia. The transmission problems persist, the brakes grab at low speeds and I'm told that everything is normal.
