I bought the wife's Acadia at the same dealer I bought the truck from (an I am also a member of the Acadia forum). My dealer is used to me bringing in various data sheets, TSB's, etc. On more than one occasion, they have told me that I've taught them things they don't know. Not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.... :?

Got the truck back Saturday. The dealer say I need new steering stabalizers. He ordered them and the truck is going in the Saturday. Hopefully that fixes everything! I'll keep you posted. -Mike

My '08 has a rattle noise near the glove box (or in that area) but it seams to be at highway speeds. I think I have it narrowed down to the plastic trim molding that goes up the passenger side of the windshield. If it is not that, then I am thinking it is something under the dash and I really don't want to take that apart.

To either rule-out or prove that it is that trim piece, I have a 150 mile round trip on the highway planned for this weekend. I am going to (and I hate to say this) duct tape that trim piece to the glass... just to see if the rattle does not happen on this trip.

I am hesitant to ask the shop to take a look at it initially... and this could be a good piece of advise for any future readers of this post.

Before taking it in, make sure EVERYTHING is out of the cab and try to reproduce it!

From experience: I complained about a rattle in my F150. Turned out it was a ratchet strap that was thrown in the passenger side map compartment. Very embarrassing. :oops:

Could be your intermediate steering shaft, tons and tons of complaints come in here to the dealership for that.

Haven't heard anything for awhile. Since maybe Feb.? If it starts again, like next fall or winter, it might be the problem Mikejustowns mentioned! I went to the dealer about the problem a while back, and showed them a copy of that TSB, and they said they hadn't heard anything about it! Yeh! Got my "bowtie" changed for a new one while I was there.

I took my truck to the dealer just before my 36K warranty expired to see if they could eliminate the rattle noise that I thought was coming from the glove box or the center console. They ordered a new glove box and installed it telling me that the dashboard was poorly installed at the factory. I have a hard time believing that. Anyway, now at 38K, it is worse. I received my first recall letter today indicating that the transmission dipstick comes loose and rattles. They have a fix and to bring it in. That happens to be exactly where I think the sound is coming from. I can't wait to take it in now. I was contemplating selling the truck over this stupid noise. I love the truck, but the noise is very irritating. I will update when I get it back.

I have a great dealer. I remembered on my way into town on my day off to call the dealer for my recall work. They got me in right away. The kids played on their guest computers and I looked at cars for 18 minutes and it was done. Unfortunately, this did not fix my rattle/squeek noise coming from or near the glove box.

Thanks for the update. Have you advised them that the problem is still occurring? Please send a PM with your VIN# and contact information if you plan to take it back. This information will be used to document your situation and monitor the repair progress. I hope this is fixed quickly for you.

I wouldnt doubt that there may be a poorly installed dashboard. Lately certain models now keep getting stress fracture cracks in the dashboards(by the glove box,which is unsafe) GM is starting to recognize this as a major concern. If you youtube "Gm cracked dashboard" you can see tons of poorly installed dashes
