CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

CarComplaints.com Notes: Buying the first model year of any vehicle is rarely a good idea. You become a guinea pig for the automaker and they are really not nice to guinea pigs.

The 2008 Enclave has a wide enough range of problems to issue a warning. There's transmission failure under 90k miles, new power steering units costing over $1,300, and enough engine complaints to NHTSA to scare anyone away.

I recently bought a Buick Enclave 2008. While driving I rolled down the back windows to let some air in the next thing I heard was a terrible noise and it hurt my ears, the faster I drove the worse the noise became. I took the Enclave back to the Buick dealer and after they drove it they also heard the noise. From what they told me it is because the Enclave has a lot of air space in the rear of the vehicle and that is what cause the noise but, why does it not make the noise when, I open the driver window all the way down"? they could not answer that question. However I did find out that all of the Buick and GMC's are built the same and make the same noise. I enjoy the Enclave but I do not like being able to open the rear windows of my Enclave. Can you help me or tell me what I can to to resolve this problem" my wife and I are both in our mid 60S and we wanted to enjoy a good vehicle. Thanks james boot
