You read my mind. I was going to ask the same question. But, as far as I know, there hasn't been any obvious difference in the wave plate failure rate between the FWD vs. AWD variants.maxclave said:Does anyone know if the AWD or FWD are more susceptible to the wave plate fail since the tranny is different?
So much for the theory of none before August '07. I now see that one has recently been posted on the Outlook forum that was built in January of 2007GerryL said:Don't know if anyone has looked at this statistically. There's about 30 dates provided and I took a quick look at them on a timeline. There are none before August '07 and the last seems to be April '09. There is a particularly big slug in late '07 with a peak at October and Nov and another slightly smaller but notable heavy grouping built in late '08. Considering that Enclaves were made as early as April '07 and Acadia's obviously go back a ways before that, it is interesting to see that the earliest ones may not have the issue.
Perhaps the relatively small sample size of 30 respondents isn't adequate to properly capture the manufacturing dates that are likely involved?GerryL said:So much for the theory of none before August '07.

Perhaps..... but also keeping in mind that not all E owners are members of this forum. Or aren't anymore b/c of the wave plate failure. Maybe not even reporting it here. But who knows.

:thumb: :happy:notstock4long said:I feel like I can't be the first one to hear of this, but the '07 - '09 Lambdas are now covered for wave plate failure.
The vehicles mentioned above will be covered for a period of 10 years from the DOM, or to 120,000 miles, whichever comes first. Apparently this bulletin was just released a few weeks ago.
EDIT: I now see that it has already been mentioned!
Keep us posted as to getting/not getting your reimbursement check. Fingers crossed for you IMHIP2!IMHIP2 said:In Canada its covered for 10 years or 193,000 km in the letter I received dated Mar 2015
If you paid to have the work preformed then you have till Mar 31, 2016 to apply for reimbursement
My just over $3000 claim was submitted today
Failed at 159,800km (approx 100,000 miles)
Thank goodness you bought the extended warranty. If it is the tranny, it justified the cost of the extended warranty. Hopefully the new dealer will treat you as well as your old one.MRBUICK said:Here I am at 48000 miles, built April 2007, delivered June 2007 and I have all the symptoms of a wave plate failure. Service Stabilitrack & Traction Control warnings coming on, and today the trans started slipping, getting sloppy changing gears and delay going into gear. Our 2008 Enclave is going in tomorrow for evaluation and I hope it makes it there as it is deteriorating rapidly. If not I will call On Star for a tow. In a few months the extended warranty will expire so I guess the timing is good considering the circumstances.
I did NOT buy an extended warranty as I normally do not consider them money well spent. However, I received a letter from GM maybe 3 years ago stating that GM is extending the warranty for wave plate failures for 10 years/100,000 miles. As I am just a few months from 10 years, I trust that all will be covered.gostate said:Thank goodness you bought the extended warranty.
