Canada - Acadia 2007-2010

Im in love with that model. Im looking for a 7+ seater 4x4 .

I read only bad things about those truck.

Does anyone have had a good one, with no timing chain problem ? Or they ALL stretch bad ?

Re: Canada - Acadia 2007-2010

Find one that's already been through the retro fit with newer chains.

Re: Canada - Acadia 2007-2010

If you're talking to folks with 2010 models, you won't get any response about the timing chains. Those models (supposedly) aren't effected by the problem.

Re: Canada - Acadia 2007-2010

Ive read in this forum that even 2010 and 2011 are affected, might be less official, but still...

Then, consider a 2012. It's the last year for the original body style.

Re: Canada - Acadia 2007-2010

Price is not the same than an 07-08... And not sure about timing chain reliability either...

Am I over reacting and some of you guys own 07-08-09-10 that DO NOT have timing chain issue ?

Re: Canada - Acadia 2007-2010

Possibly! Consider the '08 was never involved in the timing chain SCA and that program ended for the '09 model year. Also, any problems with the '10 and beyond are few and far between.
