Several folks have had the misfortune to have CAMSHAFT issues -- there are many
forum topics discussing.

This poll might help those who are looking at a used Lamda or have one
and have concerns relative to suspect build dates.

thanks,

You may or may not want to do this but it might be nice if there is a "no issue" option also. That way we can also gauge the level of the issue.

Your call.

Done -- Let's hope no one needs to repeal that vote!

I dont see what adding the no issue does to this poll without putting the month in it also....If you add the month you can tell if it is random or not. Just a thought!

I believe the intent is to guage what percentage of board members have encountered the problem. You are correct, it does nothing to identify if it is random or isolated to certain lots, but it does answer a different question, that of how widespread the problem is.

I think it is a good idea I just figured it would be good to see if it falls in a particluar month, sorry if i stepped over my bounds...!

I dont believe you overstepped any bounds. I was just clarifying. I thought adding it was a good idea as it helps answer 2 different questions in one poll.

maybe this was already discussed but wouldn't the engine build date be more important than the vehicle assembly date?

It would be but 1) where do you find it and 2) half the people can't find their build date as it is and/or they are too lazy to go look and post.

Whether you are interested in the engine build date or the vehicle build date depends on
what you want to do with the data.

In my mind -- if I own an Enclave I *might* be able to figure out the engine build date,
but if I was looking at purchasing a new one on a lot, or a used one from somewhere,
I'm likely to only know the vehicle build date -- and there might be enough correlation
between that and CAM problems that someone might choose one that is
assembled at a different time.

Is it bullet proof -- no
Is it comprehensive -- no
It probably is not even statistically meaningful until we have a couple hundred entries......

But you got to start somewhere.

OK, I blew it. Going down the list as to when my Enclave was built, I hit Feb. 2008 without thinking and sent the message. Then I read after my vote was posted and I should have gone down one further and said no problems. So if you can, remove 1 number from the build date and put my reply into no problem area. It was still built in Feb. 2008

Build date of 10/07 with no cam issues. Did have the transmission shift problem but the latest flash updates made a tremendous difference in the feel of the car. 8)
