2023 GMC Acadia Recalled For Incorrect Transmission Sun Gear9
GM has issued a product recall for certain units of the 2023 GMC Acadia due to the installation of the incorrect transmission sun gear.
The problem: vehicles built with the incorrect transmission sun gear can have the driver-side half-shaft disengage from the transmission.
The hazards: if the driver-side half-shaft were to disengage, affected vehicles can experience a loss of drive power or a rollaway while parked, both of which can lead to an increased risk of a serious crash.
The fix: certified GM technicians will be instructed to inspect the transmission and replace the sun gear as necessary, all free of charge.
Affected components: transmission sun gear.

More GM Junk! GM is trying to catch up to Ford on recalls. How do you install the wrong sun gear in a transmission?
Only at Government Motors!
They have a long way to go to catch up to Ford.
You can always tell the Ford, Tesla and Stellantis fanboy’s comments from anyone else’s here on GMA.

It never fails, and when people who don’t care for your company are this triggered it usually means you’re doing something correct.
These weirdos tailgate and camp-out here for articles like this, just so they can post crap like “GM junk” lol meanwhile Ford and Fiat’s RAM/Dodge/Jeep have so many quality control issues that recalls can’t even save those products.

America now ?
including foreign names ?
Looks like GM needs to give the vendor a whipping.
It is a shame that after trading in our 2018 GMC Acadia for a brand new 2023 GMC Acadia just 1 week ago (due to a multiple variety of problems with the 2018), we end up with a Transmission Recall so soon after with the brand new 2023…
