Just got my wife a used 08 with 10,000 miles on it. This may sound like a dumb question but what is lambda? Another questions how would I find out if the all the updates and recalls have been done on this vehicle. It was bought from a Chevrolet dealer and is supposed to GM certified. So far we really love it.

Thanks, Mike

Re: Newbie with questions

Lambda is the internal GM name for the platform of the Acadia, Enclave, Outlook, & Traverse. GMT360 is the platform for the full size pickups, GMT355 for the Colorado & Canyon, Kappa for the Solstice & Sky, and so forth.

By the way, welcome to the forum --- lots of great members on here!

Re: Newbie with questions

Welcome also- to check on the open recalls or updates, you can go to any GM dealer and have them check it in the GMVIS- GM Vehicle Info System. The selling dealer should have done this before you got it, but it would not hurt to check it. I'd make a call to them first to see if it was done before going anyplace.

Congrats on the purchase Mike. I can check GMVIS for you if you want to PM me the last 8 digits of the VIN#.

GeoHawk can you check my car too. :angel:

I recently bought used too and this information would be handy. I have had the same questions the OP has for a few weeks now. You will make me sleep better at night. ;D

Also, Is there a way to find out what services were done within the dealer network?

OP sorry for the hijack

Sure, I can check yours, just send me a PM with the VIN. GMVIS will only show warranty/recall work, so you would have to check with the dealer for a regular service history.

Have Fixes been applied

New to forum
New Acadia owner but not a new Acadia. build date 6/2007.
Prior owner was a major rental company. Found documents that indicate it was Hertz.
From the build date, may be after the washer fluid heater and transmission shifting issues, but I am not sure.

Is there any way to find out if fixes (software term) have been applied to my Acadia?
