Our transmission failed on our 2008 Saturn Outlook in May, and we were only at 62000 miles. Dealer diagnosed the dreaded wave plate issue, so it was going to be around $3500 to replace plate or $5000 for a new transmission. From reading here and the Acadia forum and from talking with a buddy who had this same thing on his 09 Acadia it seems like this is a common problem that is costing people lots of money. There was an Acadia Technical Service Bulletin in March 2011 #09-07-30-012 about the wave plate being an issue, and I understand GM fixed the issue beginning in late 2009 models.

I am attempting to recover some of my cost via GM customer loyalty and have been in touch with their customer service. My buddy received some assistance with his Acadia, so I thought I would share here and update when I hear back.
