Transmission Ruins Enjoyment
By Monica Ryan on


2009 Buick Enclave CXL 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I bought the Enclave after two suburbans and wanted a more luxurious vehicle with better gas mileage. I have been quite disappointed on both points. The transmission shifts randomly and feels like the entire car is going to stop at times. It is currently being repaired and I plan to sell it as soon as I can get it to run better. The car makes an awful grinding noise under the hood on acceleration and in turns which I have been told is normal. I have had two people ride with me lately and ask me what is wrong with the car. The car does not leave one with a feeling of confidence or satisfaction.

Best Features

I love the way it looks.

Worst Features

Apply stainproofing to the seats so jeans do not leave the seats blue. Lessen the grinding noise from the transmission. Make the transmission shift more smoothly and less often.
