 The vehicle intermittently loses power steering which makes turning the vehicle very difficult. this initially began happening at very low speeds like when turning into a parking space or entering/exiting our garage. lately it's begun to occur at higher speeds such as when making turns on roadways. this loss of power steering at higher speeds is a much more dangerous situation as it increases the probability of a crash. this particular issue appears to be a common complaint amongst acadia owners.

 While making a hard right turn front tires very difficult to turn very resistant. front tires felt like being drug across the pavement. problem became more frequent in both turning directions. took it to dealership to find out it is a common problem with this vehicle (others complaining of this online). steering racket cracked and fluid leaking on right internal in bellows. internal problem with steering gear. i was told this wasn't recalled because it is not a safety issue, basically some one has to die! excuse me, i drive on the country's most dangerous highway, us 50 over echo summit at least once/twice per month. what if this failed? how is a steering problem not a safety issue? i took the suv in before we were killed!

 The steering makes an awful noise when turning. this is usually at low speeds. this same problem was corrected while it was under warranty at the dealership. however, now i am past the mileage warranty and nothing will be done. i have contacted gmc several times and there were no suggestions. this is very disappointing seeing that it has been less than a year since the part was replaced under warranty. *tr
