Actually found this forum by doing a search on uncomfortable seats in GMC's in general.
Found this topic
I found this to be exactly my problem with my 2019 Acadia seats. Seams they never fixed the junk seats from back in 2016,
I didn't take this specific Acadia for a test drive but another and don't remember such pain. I'm hoping its a defect but
i definitely notice a sinking feeling and immediate pain after just a few minutes in it. Makes long trips really unbearable and sometimes short trips a tough.
I've tried all kinds of lumbar supports (even the 300 dollar ones) with no luck. Even tried a few different seats as well but they seem to lift me up too high. I'm 6'2 at about 200 pounds.
Kinda regretting this purchase now and wish i would have turned my man card in and got that KIA i looked at after all lol.
Not to mention, im not crazy about these cheap slippery steering wheels GMC put in, reminds me of the Dodge Journeys. But, i'm ok with putting a cover on that.
Now, im straight up afraid to drive this thing without taking a few pain pills.
Anybody have any constructive tips they can offer or experienced the same issue?

U.S. News Autos reports that GM is offering $4,000 cash back on that popular model. The 2018 Chevy Tahoe appears on the second list for its special offer of $3,000 cash back if buyers finance through GM.

I'm very frustrated about how GM denied an extended warranty coverage case on a well known production issue of their 2008 GMC Acadia (and many other models, see list and bulletin). Up until now I was very happy with my car and even considered upgrading soon but the way GM handled and communicated my case is careless and completely unacceptable.
On Aug 6, while literally on the way to the airport for my family vacation to Europe, the check engine light came on and we had to take the airport shuttle instead. After returning in September I had the car towed to the dealer who diagnosed a faulty 35R transmission clutch wave plate. A quick internet search turned up service bulletin #14404 (https://gm.oemdtc.com/TSB/SB-10057962-6560.pdf) describing this issue as a common and well known defect in many early models (including mine), as a matter of fact grave enough to extend the warranty to 10 years and 120,000 miles. I called GM customer engagment who bluntly denied the warranty because it had expired 2 weeks prior the diagnose. This is upsetting because the mileage on my Acadia is way below 120,000, the problem originated long before the expiration date and there wasn't any communication that would have notified me of that issue or triggered a sense of urgency to bring in the car before going on vacation.
I strongly believe that it is GM's responsibility to rectify this well known issue under the extended warranty conditions given the above described circumstances. I'm happy to provide further evidence (plane tickets, diagnosis report) and look forward to your reply and a resolution to my problem within the next 3 days.
I've a 2018 GMC Acadia. It is a FWD 3.6L/6T70. Recently, I've not been able to move the shift lever to Low ranges. It was intermittent at first & today I was not able to shift it into low range at all.
Wondering: if anyone else has experienced this?, Fix?, Bulletin? This is a potential safety issue.

In a new round of testing by IIHS, the 2018 GMC Acadia topped all domestic brands and also top-sellers the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander in an important passenger-side safety test. The Acadia scored Good overall on the small frontal overlap test which simulates the vehicle hitting a pole or another object with just the front corner of the vehicle. The Ford Explorer's airbags malfunctioned and the Jeep Grand Cherokee saw big cabin intrusion due to a weak crash structure. Both scored the lowest possible overall grade. The GMC Acadia joins the Kia Sorento and VW Atlas in earning the top overall score of Good.
