They TRIED to tell me the same thing and I told them that was absolutely unacceptable. That it didn't even begin to make any sense. I told them that if the car I had bought at the original price worked properly, I wouldn't be paying any increases, that is wasn't my fault the car wasn't what they sold it to me as. I told them it was their problem to fix it and I wasn't taking on any additional costs in order for them to do so. SO I did not pay any additional costs for the vehicle. Keep in mind that if GM does not resolve the issue with you individually, you can get the BBB involved and that will be additional costs for GM, so I think they try to tell you anything, like you have to pay the additional cost, but in the end they want to resolve the issue without getting the BBB involved.

For all those with Enclaves, check out the Acadia Forum on this site. You won't believe the horror stories. It is the same vehicle.

Yep, and I've owned two Enclaves with very few issues.

Yes I had same problem and it took 36 or something like that too. Mine is a 2008 model built in 2007. I'm reading other post and realizing that we got the bad bunch. I am filing a complaint since I am still paying for it. It makes noise and rides sluggish too. I also love the vehicle and would love to have another one without these problems. Come to think about it the passenger door drops a little when opening. Man I got beat. ; (

#26 of 26 The 08 Enclave is a lemon

Within 2 weeks of having the required sunroof/moonroof leak, I now have the "cam shaft end play" fault code popping up, indicating a stretched timing chain and/or faulty cylinder heads, etc. etc. Major problems. Feedback from dealer and GM telephone rep is that it's my fault for not changing oil frequently enough. That's total bunk, because the car's tells you when the oil life has been depleted and an oil change is due. I've followed that religiously. Car is out of its 5 year powertrain warranty by 54 days and only has 64,500 miles on it. Dealer advises it will cost $1,500 just to tear down engine to fully diagnose the problem. You can tell in talking to the different levels at GM that each area is fully independent and is not about to make any concessions unless they get reimbursed from a different department of GM.
