I see that your initial post here was from a few days ago - any updates on your progress at your shop (GM dealer or independent?) since then?

Hi I am very upset and frustrated with GM it seems that they do not care about their products I see alot of people are having problems with the AC and GM does not take responsibility and recalls it my AC is blowing hot air on the passenger car I regret buying the Buick if I had know about the issues I would never have bought it I totally expected a great car and I am very disappointed with it. Gm does not want to cover the cost. I am very disappointed
#143 of 201 Just Purchased Used Car, ac blower out and grease on ceiling from sunroof
Aug 28, 2012 (4:34 pm)
First off, I was so excited to have been able to purchase a 2008 used Buick Enclave about 6 weeks ago for our one car family. I felt like it was a perfect fit for my family.
Unfortunately last weekend the blower went out on our air conditioner. After reading on-line that it was a known problem, my husband took the blower out and we did, in fact, have rings of dried water marks in the bowl like cover). There was also rust on the blower itself so is obvious we have water damage.
We have all of the service records from the previous owner and have found out the blower has already been replaced and the front and back sunroofs have each been repaired once.
Now today, I noticed wet looking marks on the ceiling above the passenger seat. After touching, it seems to be some sort of grease.
I'm not sure what's going on with this. I'm frustrated to say the least considering the short amount of time we've owned the vehicle and considering we only have one car. I certainly hope Buick will step up and correct these issues considering they were issues before we even owned the car. I'm afraid what other problems we will face from these issues too (electrical, mold, etc.).

Did you steal my car? I have had every issue you have described. Transmission out in the first 2 months. brakes needs to be replaced in 4 months. AC out, power steering out, struts out in the first 13 months, water pump out, and recall on rear wiper. on an average for every 2 months I OWNED THIS CAR I HAVE HAD TO SPEND AN EXTRA CAR NOTE TO REPAIR IT. What a SUPER LEMON. DO YOU KNOW HOW WE CAN ORGANIZE TO START A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT?

PLEASE, don't buy this garbage! SAVE YOURSELF THE DISAPPOINTMENT AND MONEY!!!
#147 of 201 Enclave Heater/AC Regulation
Oct 31, 2012 (3:39 pm)
The front AC evaporator on my 2009 Enclave was recently replaced by my dealer at 68,000 miles (major three-day repair job). Since then, the heater/AC system just doesn't regulate between heat and cool. For the first five minutes or so after starting from a cold start, the heater blows so hot we can't stand it. Then it cools down to where it gets really chilly, then after another ten minutes or so starts blowing really hot again. It never, ever, did this before the AC repair. The dealer screwed up several other things when he did the AC work, but he says the heater/AC system is working like it's supposed to. Anyone else having a similar problem? Thanks!
