Well, we have owned our 2011 GMC Acadia now for almost two years. So far, in two years, I have had to replace a steering rack (out of pocket), catalytic converter, and now I am stuck on vacation with the Acadia back in the shop. My family and I limped into our vacation spot with multiple codes and the wonderful check engine light on. After thinking it may be just a dirty throttle body or bad spark plugs, I come to find out that the Acadia is possibly facing an engine replacement and I am stranded on vacation with the possibility of missing more work. I absolutely love the design of the Acadia, however I am not sure if I could ever buy one again. I am hoping for a brand new engine out of this, however, when that one goes I am not sure I can buy another. I just don't see how a great design could have so many defective parts. At this point, I'm just hoping to not lose my job for missed time.
