I just unloaded my '09. My experiences were similar to Diamond. Worst car I ever owned. A real money pit.
No way anybody gets an early model enclave to 150k without a significant amount of expensive repairs.

These vehicles are expensive to maintain without a warranty, and I have first hand experience. Every car has issues, but my 09 Enclave has been especially troublesome costing me thousands to keep running. I wouldn't touch a new Enclave with what I had to go thru with the one I currently have.

But the OP expressly discourages everybody from buying the very product that inspired the site, and it gets posted!

Interesting (and not in a good way) moderation regime in use here ...
so not only are they obviously whiney that no one played any attention to the launched complaint, but ....... forgetful, too....

2011 Enclave

I bought mine 2 years ago with 154,000 on it and it's now ready to roll over 190,000. I've put a new set of tires on it and front brake pads and installed new plugs and did the coils while I had it apart. Thing still rides and runs like a new car. Will definately be looking at another one when it needs to be replaced. If it breaks it breaks. With that many miles anything can happen so won't really worry about it. And after owning a car for over 2 years and still owing $15,000 on it they really got taken by the dealer. I only paid about 10,300 for mine and paid it off in 2 years. So it's now free and clear and if it croaks and is too expensive to fix, you just sell it for parts and walk away and go find another one.
