Warranty Work Completed

Wow its been a few weeks since I have been on. Been real busy with getting ready to move so the internet has been pushed to the side. Anyways, The Acadia just got out of the shop after being in for an entire week. I took it in to get the tranny reflashed which made a night and day difference in throttle response. This is how they should have done it from the start.
The other issue was the "clunking" from the steering shaft and power steering whine. Well the clunking decided to go away as soon as they looked at it and it still has not come back. After 3 days of diagnosing the power steering whine it was determined to be the start of a pump failure. The Service Manager contacted GM and they relayed to replace the pump now even though the pump was not bad. ****, the technician did not think anything was wrong until I made them get a new one and drive them back to back. It seems all the rack failures we have seen according to GM is due to the pump not pumping to specs and the rack ends up running dry. Turns out you get used to the noise or when someone buys one used they think it is normal. IT IS NOT NORMAL ON A VEHICLE THIS NEW. Just thought I would let everyone know an update directly from GM regarding one of the biggest problems to this platform.

Loud Steering Noise, constantly!!!! BS

From all the posts I have seen about the CONSTANT Loud Noise that sounds like but is not power steering fluid related that a Good Service Comany would Stand Behind There Product and do a Factory Recall. It is totally BS that a pretty new car sounds like a truck Inside a closed window compartment. If her is not a fix out for this soon I will never spend a dime on a gmc again.
