General Motors announced a recall of certain 2018 GMC Terrain, Acadia and Canyon vehicles built during March 2018.
This bulletin involves 2010-2016 GMC Acadia and 2017 GMC Acadia Limited vehicles. Some customers may comment that there is a clunk/thump noise on acceleration once after each key cycle that may be mistaken as coming from the suspension or engine compartment.
This bulletin applies to 2007-2017 GMC Acadia vehicles. In some cases, the ABS Service Traction Control System, and/or Service StabiliTrak telltale lights may be on. During initial scan for EBCM module diagnostic codes, you may find one or more of the following DTCs: C0035-C0050 with specific symptom bytes 18, 5A or 0F.
This bulletin applies to 2013 – 2019 Chevy Malibu vehicles equipped with a 2.5L or 2.0L engine. The same engines are available in a number of GM vehicles including Buick Envision and Regal, Cadillac CTS, ATS and CT6, Chevy Camaro, Equinox, Impala and Traverse and GMC Acadia, Canyon and Terrain.
Owners of 2009-2017 GMC Acadia vehicles may comment that under hard acceleration at higher speeds, the traction control light will flash, or they may visit your shop for ABS or general handling/braking concerns. This may be caused by tires installed that do not meet the same tread wear, traction or temperature ratings.
Some owners of 2007-2013 GMC Acadia vehicles may comment that the fuel gauge does not go to empty and the engine runs out of fuel, or they may hear a fuel slosh or noise from the fuel tank area when braking or accelerating from a stop.
This bulletin applies to 2007-2012 GMC Acadia vehicles. A “Service Stability” message may appear on the driver’s information center as a result of DTC C0561 set in the electronic brake control module (EBCM). The EBCM receives messages from the other modules over GMLAN which are needed to perform ABS, VSES and/or TCS functions.
Some owners of 2011 GMC Acadia vehicles may complain about a pop or snap type noise from the front suspension when going over bumps.
Some owners of select GM vehicles may comment on a low brake pedal during braking. See the application list at the end of this bulletin.
Some owners of 2009-2011 Chevy Traverse vehicles (as well as 2008-2011 Buick Enclave, 2007-2011 GMC Acadia and 2007-2010 Saturn OUTLOOK) may complain about an intermittent no-crank/no-start, liftgate inoperative and/or warning lights on.
