Lemon or Bad Luck

2008 Buick Enclave CXL 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Bought when 1st out. Love the style, ride, and comfort. 6 sp transmission downshifts too much. Tires (mich) wore unevenly. Paid for alignment at 30000. All four wheels significantly out even though it drove normally. At 40000, #5 cylinder misfires intermittently, shuts down auto track. Can't seem to find the cause. Even with new car bugs, it is a great vehicle. Have your alignment checked prior to 5000 miles (all wheels), warranty will cover it then. Good mpg for this size, 22-27 highway. A little more engine torque would eliminate annoying transmission downshifting. Excellent trim and fit. Needs a locking gas cap door.
Quiet ride, easy access all doors. 2nd row buckets are great. Very nice interior trim and finish.
Check all wheel alignment prior to 5000 miles. Increase engine torque/hp to reduce 6spd trans excessive downshifting.
