Great Looking, But Not Reliable
By darrenjonesoc on
2008 Buick Enclave CXL 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
We love the look of our Enclave and the interior is versatile and attractive and comfortable. However, the car is very unreliable! Our engine had been dropped three times (we only have 28,000 miles) for major repairs. We have been without the car a total of 2 months out of the 24 we have owned it. A number of smaller issues have emerged that are annoying (seat tracks falling apart, exterior apliques falling off in the wind, sensors failing, etc.). I hate to say it, but Consumer Reports is right, GM cars are not reliable. That is a shame, because if the car were well built and reliable, I would love it.
Quiet, nice driving (though needs a bit more power), versatile interior, XM, Onstar.
They have added in 2010 models the things I wanted: traffic alert with the nav, blind spot warning, direct injection. The remaining suggestion-- improve the quality!!!!!!!!
