2008 Buick Enclave: Oh Yeah, Much Better Engine Cover Location

July 16, 2008

The Enclave's engine cover conveniently located in the trunk

Remember last week, when Magrath discovered the Enclave's oil cap is all that's keeping on the engine cover? Remember when he said, "If it were my Enclave the first piece to go in the trash would be that silly cover."

Well,he didn't put it in the trash. No no, he put it in theEnclave's trunk.Yeah buddy,much better.When I took my first turn in the big Buick last Friday, a great big plastic thwack eminated from behind the erected third row. "What the hellwas that?" I pondered, not used to items being left in our fleet vehicles.

When I popped thehatch Icame upon the sight above. Does this have any real effect on Buick Enclave ownership? Not really. I just felt like airing inter-office grievances on the World Wide Interweb. Tomorrow I'll be complaining that Josh Sadlier leaves the cap off the non-dairy creamer.
