Enclave CXL 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 175,000 miles

I can't believe that a timing chain goes bad at 175k miles. And I read that Buick Enclave has this known problem and Buick doesn't want to cover that.

problem #1

Enclave CXL2 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 119,500 miles

Ridiculous to have an engine malfunction of this magnitude at 119,000 miles. I bought this Enclave because of the comfort, but it has been such a maintenance nightmare that I will have to go back to foreign manufacturers. That is after I finish paying off this stupid repair. Even my BMW's have given me over 300k on an engine. 2 toyota vans 204,000 and 149,000 no issues and no AC problems. The whole dash had to be torn apart at less than 100,000 on the Enclave to the tune of over $1200. So now they tell me that my timing chain jumped a tooth from stretch. Suggestions, repair if possible, replace motor with remaining warranty. Never again, GM stands for Gigantic Malfunction.
