Maintenance issues with a 2008 Buick Enclave

Those interested in Enclaves should exercise caution. I have a 2008 Enclave with 87,000 miles and is quickly becoming a maintenance nighmare. In the past two months I have had to replace the power steering pump/rack, cam sensors, oil sending unit, and now the service airbag light is on (bad module) and the dealer wants $700 to repair. Tally all this up and it's $3K.

It's evident there is an issue with the power steering/rack given the pending class action lawsuit on 2009-2012 models. I cannot believe there has not been a recall.

What was once my dream vehicle has become an unreliable maintence nightmare. I should have known better 5 years ago and stayed with Honda.

Most concerning is I convinced three close friends to purchase Enclave's. Based on what I am experiencing they are now questioning why I did.

Anyone else experincing the same level of issues?

  • Just wanted to post an update. Took the 2008 Enclave to another car repair shop. Buick = $2000.00 Same repairs at another shop $850.00 If you like getting charged double for repairs take it here. Otherwise have an independent mechanic tell you what you really need to fix and what it will cost. Motor mounts broken after only 60000 miles. AC hose leaking. Buick recommended tune up after only 60000 miles as well. Last GM car ever for me.
