The GMC Acadia water leak problem continues to be an issue. As far back as 2009, we were writing how GMC Acadia drivers were dealing with a water leak problem which was leaving them and their passengers “all wet,” not to mention the floor boards and the electrical systems. Sadly, the problem is now occurring in newer GMC Acadia Vehicles as well.
The good news is we have successfully resolved numerous water leak claims for this vehicle. If you are suffering with a water leak in your GMC Acadia, make sure you return to a General Motors authorized dealer at your earliest opportunity. Try to pinpoint where the leak is coming from so you can provide as much helpful information as possible to your service adviser. Make sure when you pick the vehicle up from service that you also receive a repair invoice which outlines the water leak problem and what was done to address the situation. Check for mold, mildew and headliner stains as well. If the problems continue, you need to keep bringing the Acadia back.
If you are back to the dealer three or more times, you could be entitled to free legal representation under State Lemon Laws or Federal Warranty Laws. You could be looking at a repurchase, a new vehicle or a partial refund and continued ownership of the Acadia. Remember, under the Lemon Law and Federal Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, legal representation is completely free , so you have nothing to lose except your (wet) lemon. If you have questions, feel free to drop us a line or call us at 1 800 LEMON LAW.
