2008 Buick Enclave CXL 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


During our purchase of our 2008 used Enclave from Gene Messer Ford. The vehicle had several electrical problems that the dealer said was normal and we could pay to have it fixed. Electric window did not operate, electric seat motors were non functional, and the water pump went out right after we got it. Granted it was used with 60000 miles. One would expect the electronics and water pump to at least hit the 100000 mark. I have also noticed some other electrical problems. When the waterpump went out the vehicle gave an overtemp warning and the display showed "shut off engine". We immediately did. Something killed the battery and this made key be locked in the ignition. Sounds like a pro-thef

Best Features

Interior and exterior design and comfort.

Worst Features

More reliable engine parts, better programming in controls. Fix electrical bugs. Fix transmission programming. Better quality parts on all electronics. Try buying more parts made in America instead of Brazil and other areas.
