2007 GMC Acadia 4dr SUV

275-horsepower 3.6L V6 6-speed shiftable automatic AWD

7000 mi TSB for brake squeak. Fix was to change OEM GM brake fluid with a non-GM brake fluid that is DOT 3 compliant. Noise sounded like it came from the pedal armiture itself, however it was the brake fluid not properly coating the seals in the brakes ... 
17360 mi While driving straight and constant speed (100km/h) warning lights came on - Stabilitrak off, Service Stabilitrak, Service Traction Control. Car was returned corrected with no explanation or paper work. 
20460 mi Tire Noise and Vibration - Tires replaced/Rotors Machined 
33480 mi Clicking noise - sounds like ABS when accelerating from stop. Noise blamed on low brake pads. Pads were replaced. Noise remains.
