so far so good...
By dpgull on


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


well dispite all the horror stories I read about a few major issues, I decided to take the plunge and buy a very well equipped 2008 CXL (everything but the folding mirrors, 110volt outlet and articulating headlights). It was a 1 owner car that was dealer maintained and I had access to all the service records.
It seems the original owner had already addressed the steering (full replacement) and strut issue, and at 80,000 miles it runs tighter and quieter than the Mercedes M Class it replaced.
Also I got an excellent price for the car well below book value.
I did purchase a 3/36,000 extended warranty through my credit union which covers all major component, so if that wave plate goes...

Update- I owned this car for 30 months, and put on 40,000 miles, besides normal maintenance the only 2 issues I had (throttle body and rear lift gate struts) were covered under recalls. The cost of ownership was incredibly good. I loved the car so much I bought a new 2015
