GM Quality gone?
By creeker00 on


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


Switched over from Dodge/Jeep to GM in purchasing the 08' Enclave and what a mistake that was.
Guess next time I will go with a Ford, as GM and Dodge have obviously went way downhill.

Car rides better than any I've driven.
Seat comfort and features such as dual climate control, heated seats, etc. are great.
But, with under 50,000 miles on the vehicle the control buttons have lost their paint, the leather seats are terribly worn just from normal use, the rear climate control has had to be replaced due to non-functioning and is acted up again.
Also, the transmission had to be completely replaced after 40,000 miles and the rack and pinion had to be replaced.
Poor, Poor quality for $37K.

Best Features

Dual climate control system.

Worst Features

Drive train reliability, overall build quality. For a $37K vehicle I expect a $37K vehicle, not a $27K vehicle...
