problem #3

  • 2 miles


Smoke came out inside on the front passenger vent, fire melted the vent cover. Took the GMC / Buick dealership, they said they cannot find the source of fire, suggesting fire cause is external such as reflection from the sun. Driver does't smoke and there's nothing I can find in the vehicle that might have cause the reflection such as a mirror or any shiny object. This happened while the vehicle is in motion, city street driving. Vehicle traveled approximately 2 miles from the house at 8 in the morning. Outside temperature around 50's degrees. I think the problem might be electrical. The amount of smoke and burning smell in the vehicle made it very unsafe to drive it.

Enclave 6-cyl

The driver's door brushed over my lower leg and cut it due to a very sharp edge on the bottom corner of the door. This has happened three times. Both the driver's door and the front passenger door come to an extremely sharp point at the bottom lower edge. I have cut my leg three times total and both doors have done it. I have not hit my leg very hard with the door but the doors are so sharp that they just sliced my skin. I did not require medical attention but this is still a problem. I took my vehicle to the dealer for repair and they stated that it was a design problem and did not really know how to correct it. I have a picture from the first incident if you require it.

Enclave 6-cyl

2014 Buick Enclave chromed hood louver horizontal position reflects sunlight into the driver's eyes at certain positions of the sun and driver direction, blinding the driver from below the line of sight. Complaints to the dealer deferred to GM. GM's response was that this is a normal function of the vehicle. Dealer has subsequently contacted me to resolve issue.
