These are all the issues I have had fixed on my 2008 Acadia SLT2 (4600 miles) - Build date 10/07. CRAZY! And a new one I plan on getting taken care of.

- Rear door were not adjusted/snapped in properly (rubbing on door a lot when closing)
- Transmission Flash (TSB)
- ABS update to reduce noise of self check (TSB)
- Replaced brake fluid for brake pedal squeak (TSB) (Aftermarket Dot3 fluid used)
- Replaced intermediate steering arm (TSB) WAS NOT THE PROBLEM
- Replaced bearing in lower steering column for popping/clicking noise (No TSB) DID FIX THE PROBLEM

NEW: I will now have the dealership perform the following TSB (#07-03-08-006A)

#07-03-08-006A: Squeak/Creak/Pop Type Noise from Front of Vehicle (Replace Both Front Strut Upper Mounts) - (Mar 3, 2008)

Subject: Squeak/Creak/Pop Type Noise from Front of Vehicle (Replace Both Front Strut Upper Mounts)

Models: 2008 Buick Enclave

2007-2008 GMC Acadia

2007-2008 Saturn OUTLOOK

Built Prior to March 01, 2008


This bulletin is being revised to add the OUTLOOK model and update the Acadia model to 2008. An updated part number has also been added. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 07-03-08-006 (Section 03 -- Suspension).


Some customers may comment on a squeak/creak/pop type noise coming from the front of the vehicle. This noise will most likely occur during low speed turning after a small to medium suspension travel.

The cause of this condition may be due to the front strut dust boot rubbing against the vertical face of the retaining cup.

A new front strut upper mount has been developed to correct this condition. Replace the right and left side front strut upper mounts following the published SI replacement procedure.

Interesting. One observation, with a build date in Oct. 2007, you shouldn't have needed a transmission flash. Regardless, I can believe it's frustrating having to deal with all those items on a new vehicle. We haven't had to bring ours back to the dealer for a single thing, yet.
