I have a 2008 Enclave and in order to have this problem fixed the dealer essentially has to strip the inside of the car - no joke. If you need someone to verify that this is a genuine issue call Moore Buick in Los Gatos, CA. I took my Enclave there after the now defunct Capitol Buick in San Jose fixed only part of the problem and the car continued to leak, only not as badly. As the team at Moore in Los Gatos explained to me, they have to take out all of the headliner and more inside the car to seal all of the areas where water can get in. This is a major issue with 2008s only as I understand it, but a very real issue. I had water cascading down through my speakers on the right side of the windshield, and water all over the sunroof area. In fact, reach your hand up into the sunroof area - you will feel a huge puddle! This can cause dangerous mold that can harm your family. Good luck; you have to get a dealer who is committed to truly fixing this, because it is a major repair and a quick fix won't get it all.

My husband said there was definitely a recall on this situation. He said to contact GM directly. Good Luck.

My repairs are going to cost me over $1,100. This is not right. This is over and above the usual wear and tear and should be covered by GMC.

Moore Buick in Los Gatos did fix it once and for all. I was under warranty and this was probably two years ago now. If you have to pay for your repair, ask your GM mechanic to talk to Moore Buick to make sure your mechanic knows of all of the areas that need to be sealed, because there are many! Sorry about your situation. What is otherwise a great vehicle is flawed by this issue.

My Enclave just filled with water. I had so much faith in this car. If GM doens't own up to it's design flaw. There will be no other GM cars in my family!

Hi, I also own a 2008 Enclave which is leaking from the sunroof. I am glad to have found this forum. How do I contact customer service in Canada to resolve this issue.
Thank you in advance,
