Should not have. I didn't pay and also did not have the 08 transmission reflash updated until this year, because other dealers just didn't bring it up and of course I didn't know until reading about this on the "Acadia" and the "Enclave" boards.

I asked your question on another forum..
the reply was.

"2007 and up- that is a covered repair under the powertrain warranty."

So are you saying its not covered by the 5 yr 100,000 warranty? Or it is?
I am saying that it should be. BUT I also still was covered by the B2B. The transmission/drivetrain/engine are all covered under the 5 year and that should include the transmission reflash.

If it is a recall, it will be covered by the manufacturer. If it was just a TSB, it is considered "optional" and may be on your dime. I believe there was both a recall and TSB on the tranny so I don't know....
