Default 2008 Acadia

I have the same oil consumption issue. I bought our 2008 Acadia used from a dealer last December. I changed the oil before leaving on vacation to Florida this last summer. While in Florida, the car gave an engine warning light, service stabilitrak, and "turn off engine immediately" warning. We took it into the nearest service station and they found only about 1 quart of oil left. They changed the oil and reset the codes, and fixed the problems. I was blown away since I had changed the oil myself a week or so prior. On the way home, and since then, I've kept my eye closely on the oil and have had to continue adding a quart 1-2 times between oil changes.

With this much oil consumption, the Oil Life Monitor is useless. Many people thought that they only do the oil change when the OLM shows low. It would be too late. The engine and other component such as timing chain will be damaged when car running with low in oil. Now I have to do the oil change before my Acadia OLM showing 60%-50% or every 4000 miles or 4 months whichever come first. Yet, I still have to add more than 1qt oil between this oil change interval. If you search this issue online, the burning oil does not happen only on GMC Acadia but other GM cars as well. My 2nd car is 16 years old - V6 Japanese car which I do the oil change at same time. It does not burn any oil.

I have been a "die-hard" GM buyer since 1987. (2 Chevys, 3 Saturns, 3 Pontiacs, 3 Buicks, and 2 GMCs). I have a 2012 GMC Acadia Denali purchased new, November 2012. It has 49,377 miles as of today, 13 June 2017. This vehicle is meticulously maintained and cleaned. It still looks as if it belongs on a showroom floor including the engine. Just after 30,000, I thought it was my imagination that I was burning 1 qt of oil every 6,000 - 7,000 miles. I changed to Mobil 1. Hey, if it's good for Corvettes, it's good for an Acadia. Well, I was still burning a qt every 6,000 - 7,000 miles. For the last two oil changes, I used Warren (they make Penzoil and Quaker State) with Dexos certification. I only use quality oils, period. Either FRAM or AC Delco filters are done with the oil change. Since the last oil change, I have driven just over 3,000 miles. I had to add a 1/2 quart of Warren Dexos last week. Now, I know for sure that the oil burning is NOT imagination. The dealer is checking as I write this. This morning, I dropped off my GMC at the dealer I purchased my vehicle from. They suggested that I may have to do Oil Monitoring every 1,000 miles. NONE of my other GMs, throughout 30 years, burned oil. This 2012 Acadia has never been in the shop for any repairs. Aside from 3 recalls, a new set of tires last week, it has performed flawlessly for the past 4 1/2 years. GM, do the right thing and fix it write the FIRST time. As I have read numerous complaints in this forum with the EXACT same oil burning problem, You (GM) know what repair is needed. My car is under the 5 yr / 100,000 mile warranty. Do the right thing and I will continue to be a GM customer.

Has anyone received any update on this issue? I have a 2008, which I bought new and always had the dealer perform the oil changes. The amount of oil being consumed between oil changes seems to be increasong.

Car manufacturers have ridiculous specifications for oil consumption, to protect themselves - typically 1qt per 1000 miles. This of course is meaningless. A car should go at least 5000 miles before any oil is needed (and typically more). The vast majority of cars require NO oil between changes. If the manufacturer gives you grief, ask for a copy of their oil consumption data from test vehicles so that you can consult with the EPA!

Wow, I had no idea this was such a big problem until I googled it! My wife and I bought our 2010 Acadia used 5 years ago with 30,000 miles. NOTHING but problems since day one. The engine started making strange noises shortly after driving it home. Dealer brushed it off every time and we got no where for a while. My wife drove it out of town 3 hours away for a trip and called me to tell me it sounded like it was going to explode. She drove it to a private dealer owned by a friend of mine and he informed us there was no oil in it!! I was blown away because I had recently done an oil change myself! We have also gone through two power steering pumps, have a constant whine and clunk noise in the front end and so on and so on! Stabilitrak, windshield washer fluid low lights even though reservoir is full and many other lights constantly on all the time. Had the top engine cleaner performed by dealer, problem persists. Before our warranty ran out we would get brushed off by the dealer. Now the warranty has been expired for quite a while and weíre left with a lemon! I put in a quart of oil per week no matter what, so I guess changing the oil is useless because itís always fresh, how ridiculous!
I have been a die hard GM buyer my entire life. I worked for them for years in the shop before becoming their parts manager. Iíve now been a professional firefighter for the past 18 years and would never recommend this product to anyone! I have a 1998 Silverado 1-ton crew cab with a 454 since brand new. It has 140,000 miles on it and it doesnít burn a drop of oil. Sure would be nice if GM would stand behind these Acadia issues!! I would trade it in on a new car, but my conscience wonít allow me to pass this lemon on to another unsuspecting consumer.

Angry Oil Consumption

Hi

I have GMC Acadia 2013 model and residing at Muscat, Oman.

currently I am facing a Oil Consumption issue from last 1 year.

I use to refill the oil every now and then and same issue was highlighted by other GMC Acadia users.

Please let me know a permanent solution. It looks like this is a common issue with GMC Acadia.

Your assistance is required to resolve the issue.

Hey I just bought a used 2011 Acadia with 200,000 mile on it. I had no idea they burn oil. Mine ran out and the engine is now ruined. I am not used to driving anything this new. My last vehicle was a 2000 Ford Explorer and never burned oil between changes. The dealership is blaming me because i did not change the oil immediately. Isn't that something they are supposed to check when they sell it to you? so now $3300.00 down the drain and a beautiful piece of metal decorating my driveway. What kind of vehicle burns 6 quarts of oil in 5000 mile? No light...no message...no warning.

Mine did not even give me a warning. It told me the RR tire was low...but not the oil. I am extremely upset. I own a business selling and maintaining phone systems and here I sit with no transportation.
