2009 GMC Acadia 4dr SUV

288-horsepower 3.6L V6 6-speed shiftable automatic FWD

71000 mi   I took the car in for service because the check engine light came on again. Car had gone haywire again in the snow when I had to floor the gas to maintain forward motion going up hill in snow. Complete new transmission required. 
62000   Engine shudder under load and low RPM. CarMax replaced transmission under their warranty. GMC warranty had expired. I don't think this was the root cause. 
56000   3/5/R Wave Plate shattered. Had to rebuild transmission. 
30000   My gear shift was making a very loud noise and would not move smoothly when put into any gear. The symbols such as "R" for reverse and "P" for park would not light up. The gear shift was replaced but symbols still do not light up as they did when new
