Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2008 GMC Acadia transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

2008 GMC Acadia Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your GMC's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my GMC tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Acadia’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Acadia transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 Acadia’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your GMC. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
