Have you worked with Customer Assistance to set up a case yet? If so, would you be able to send that number to us (71-**********) at socialmediagm.com? Alternatively, you can send the last 8 digits of your VIN. We would like to check into the case for you.

Did you get any feedback on the 2012 from anyone. Whether the problem has been fixed. I now have mine at the dealership, 2008 model with 38,000 miles. This is the third trip and now have mold in electrical system. Dealership is telling me the problems/kinks have been worked out since 2011. Has anyone been able to confirm the 2011 or 2012 model issues have been corrected. This is also a deal breaker for me on any upgrade offer they make. Any feedaback will be appreciate as I will make a decision this week or start looking at somethign other than GM. Looks like it may become another government owned bureaucrcy with poor products and services. Very unsatisified and product is untrustworthy, including dealers if I can't get confirmaiton this has been resolved.

#93 of 162 2008 Buick Enclave Leaks
Jul 09, 2012 (11:34 am)
So I just bought a used 2008 Buick Enclave 3 wks ago. While I thought I had done all my homework after our first hard rain I now have leaks on my passenger floor and on the cloth by the passenger window. I also purchased an extended warranty only to find out they do not cover this. This is so frustrating to find out after the fact that my car has leaks! I'm appalled that GM has not owned up to this and realize this is not a sporadic problem! My in laws are retired from GM and I have owned 4 GM cars and this will be the last. What if anything can be done about this ?

Good morning kristas,
We're sorry to hear that your Enclave has a leaking issue at the moment. Is your extended warranty a GMPP (General Motors Protection Plan) Service Contract? Which one is it? If we can look into this further for you, please send us more information at socialmediagm.com, including your name and Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your involved dealership.

#95 of 162 2008 Enclave with Electrical Problems and Leaks
Aug 11, 2012 (8:04 pm)
My wife and I purchased our 2008 Buick Enclave last year and loved the car until our first heavy rain which resulted in leaking all around the sunroof and into the fuse area. Since then we have had NUMEROUS electrical issues including the car repeatedly shutting systems down while we are driving and leaving us stranded while on vacation. I just picked it up today after 21 days at the dealership and guess what...the passenger floorboard and ceiling were soaking wet!! Yes, it rained last night and in it came. They know that the electrical issues are tied to the water intrusion but cannot seem to stop it. The most annoying part however is how they act so surprised by this as though it were not documented all over the Internet. I have now even seen YouTube videos documenting the leaks and subsequent electrical issues. No Buick dealer should be surprised by this. I am at a loss and after being a loyal customer for many years, I am about done.

I also had this problem w/ my Enclave when I bought it used. I called our local Dealer service dept (Ron Smith Buick, Merced, Ca) and was advised that the vents located on the roof in front of the sunroof were probably plugged. The two vents are on either side, in front of the sunroof rails, near the windshield. I blew air, from our compressor through the holes to unplug them. No problems since. I hope this helps you.
