2014 Buick Enclave Owner Comments

problem #6

  • 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

When the interior panel is lit up, the controls in the middle row for the ac/heater get very hot. The front ac/heater controls do not have this issue, only in the middle row. I brought it up to the dealer when I took it in to get the oil changed and they really did not seem to care. This concerns me because I often have my grandchildren in the middle row. I do not want them burning themselves on the controls. It is not just warm, but very hot. I do not want a fire starting in my car or children getting burned. When the front vehicle lights are on, these controls are automatically illuminated.
