also noticed the exhaust component under the middle of the vehicle certainly appeared to very rusty. I mentioned this to the service manager and made sure it was documented. Was told since it's a new vehicle, there may come a time when GMC hears enough about it and corrects the situation. As for now, my Acadia only has 4K miles on it, so nothing can be done. I understand where she was coming from and that a process needed to take place.
Also mentioned the car door weather stripping that's rubbing on the body causing paint itch. Same story with that...GMC may eventually do something. Again, I can understand that at this very moment there's not much that can be done.

Anyhow, immediately noticed the lack of transmission lag after the calibration. What a difference!

Still love the Acadia,

Pipes, did the dealer lift the car and check to see if it was, indeed, rust? I understand where they are coming from with regards to a full recall, but fixing YOUR brand new Acadia if it really does have rust should just be part of normal warranty work. It IS possible for indivual vehicles to have issues separate from some manufacturing defect.

BTW, I thought we might have the most miles on our Acadia at 3500, but you have us beat. Might have to start a thread on that...

GMC issued a recall/TSB to recalibrate the transmissions on early Acadias. See the transmission lag recalibration described here: http://www.acadiaforum.net/forum/index.php?topic=185.0.

There are numerous threads discussing this issue in the Recalls, TSBs & Problems board, including these:
