Acadia Owners File Lawsuit Over “Shift to Park” Transmission Problems

Acadia owners are tired of seeing a shift to park message when their gear shift lever is already in PARK. A new lawsuit says the problem prevents owners from shutting off or locking their vehicles.

In addition to losing the ability to shut off and lock the SUVs, owners claim they must resort to all kinds of theatrics to get the SUVs to recognize they are in PARK. Drivers also say the batteries drain and GM has no clue how to fix the issues.

We’ve seen complaints about this problem in both the 2017 and 2018 model years.
