General Motors Complaint - 2007 Acadia Stalling Without Warning - Mystery!! GM Can't Fix
Beginning in August 2009 I started having problems with my 2007 Acadia. It turned off in the middle of the road while I was driving. I thought I was out of gas but had well over 1/2 tank. It cranked right back up and I continued to drive. Later that day it happened again while I was turning left. Luckily I had enough momentum to make my turn and get out of traffic, and it cranked right back up. This was a Sunday. I took it to the dealership the next day and they could not find anything wrong. After a few weeks it happened yet again as I was making a left turn at a busy intersection. An 18-wheeler truck was headed for me as my car stalled and honked his horn as my life flashed before my eyes. I got it to crank and floored it to save my life...and luckily I did! I went STRAIGHT to the dealership and told them what happened...they AGAIN could not find anything wrong with it. By now I am hesitant to drive my Acadia and am constantly wondering when it will happen again...WELL, it does, again and again and again, and after more than 10 times at the service department, still no luck. They installed a data recorder to try to pinpoint the problem. Well, after stalling in a drive thru and trying to get it cranked back up after numerous attempts, the only data it recovered was a "stall", with no reason why, so there is no way to fix it. I had been talking with a GM representative and she tells me that she will look into GM buying the car back...well, after talking with her this morning she says that since the matter is "unduplicated", GM cannot buy it back. Okay! I am stranded with my car in the shop and have 2 kids to bus around...one is on the basketball team and have to "bus" around her gear and teammates, etc....and GM puts me in a "rental" car of theirs which is not comparable to my Acadia and I am supposed to be a "satisfied" customer? Come on GM! I am not the only owner of a 2007 Acadia with this SAME problem! Oh, and I know why GM cannot issue a recall...because they have no clue WHAT to recall!!! Are they not aware that this problem for ME is a serious liability to THEM??? The customer service representative said that it hasnt happened enough to buy it back. Oh my goodness! How many times does it have to happen? It has stalled on me on the train tracks, twice turning left at traffic lights, once going down the interstate going 70 mph...and numerous other times. To top it all off, it stalled with an employee at the local dealership and he had to have it towed. So the proof is there that the car stalls. Is GM going to wait until me and my children get seriously injured or DIE to buy it back? Well at that time it will be my family BUYING GM not them buying MY car back! Why can't they just get me out of it and put me in something reliable? Simple as that! Please help me!
