Re: Enclave Pros & Cons
I could make it real simple:
These vehicles are great when they work, but very hard to put up with when they don't. Talking about transmissions that just stop working because of electronics, not to mention the whole issues over shift patterns of the 6-speed (better technology) trannys, batteries go dead because of too much electronic drain, sensors for every little thing that make us paranoid when they come on. DI engines that seem to be better than past engines, but then timing chains don't last, coils go out, camshafts fail, oil gets used up before it should, engine hard on oil, OLM supposed to make it easier to monitor oil life, but then is said to NOT be trustworthy, sunroofs that are awesome because of the two big glass openings, but then they have been known to leak. (can you tell that hanging around the forums has turned me a bit negative....although I love the discussions, and great people on here, sometimes being informed only turns to worry about things that may never happen)
Besides all that, PROS: Best crossover vehicle in it's class as far as utility, gas mileage, space, drivability, looks, passenger room, horsepower, and of course....technology. (but again, that can be a con, depending on each individual's experience with their car)
As longs as everything is working like it should, I think the whole vehicle is pretty much a PRO, sure I have a few gripes, but I'll put up with all the little things mentioned in the OP, as long as I don't have to put up with technology that fails more than it works.
