Hello,123ablack said:Sad news:
My 2013 Enclave (which I picked up in march), has began leaking in the rain. Not sure if it's related to the sun/moonroof or not.
I first noticed it 2 weeks ago when it was raining out there. The drivers side windshield interior post (between the air bag and speaker) got soaking wet. From then on, at every light rain this post gets really wet and water is dripping from it.
Last week started feeling rain drops on my nose (literally..) this time it comes from this little rectangle shape speaker (or microphone) right on top of my head.
Last friday again, I got quite some water coming in from those 2 spots.
Now when it dried up I dont see anything but there is a non-fresh smell in the cabin :'(
Again, This is a "2013" enclave with sunroof.
as far as I read here and in other forums, this is bad news.. This is going to be a difficult ride with many trips to multiple dealerships and hopefully one of them will find the problem and fix it..
What are your suggestions to get this thing fixed at my first dealership visit?
I'm having sleepless nights now...
PLEASE HELP :angryfire: :sosad: hno: :eyebrow: :'(
(I'm adding 2 pictures of the 2 locations where the rain comes in

Hello pickle145,pickle145 said:Electronic issues with 2008 Enclave (ONLY 45K miles) most likely due to a leak in the sunroof/skylight. We purchased the Enclave brand new. Power and all electronics would shut down for a few seconds while driving. I spoke directly with GM rep since sunroof leak has been a documented problem with other Enclaves built that year. GM agreed to pay half to repair the leak and directed us to a specific dealership for service. Short story, dealership, admittedly, cannot fix the leak and has made the problem worse, so much so that our Enclave now has mold on the carpet area. They let it sit for 3 weeks after a huge storm. They even lied to my wife once about the safety of the car. She was smart enough to ask to speak to the mechanic who said “I would not certify your car and I would never put my own family in your car because of the safety issue with the fuse block." Turns out water leak cause the fuse block to melt resulting in the electronic issues, even though dealership initially said it was the alternator (which we paid to replace). Now they want us to trade but only want to give $16K for the car and don't want to give credit for the $3K we spent at the service department for our car which has been at the dealership 6 out of the past 10 months. Per dealership’s sales managers request, we looked at vehicles on their used car lot to consider an even swap. We thought we were going to do a an swap for at 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. They said they would set the car aside, so it would not be sold until sales manager and service manager could meet Monday to discuss the swap. We receive a call by the salesman yesterday. He said, “I’m calling to see if you’re still interested in the Nissan Pathfinder”. Wife says yes, we have been waiting for someone to call us back after the meeting 3 days ago. He calls back a few hours later saying that they sold the Pathfinder on Saturday. Really? What happened to setting the car aside so it wouldn’t be sold. But fact is, they've ruined our car. Not sure what our options are. Heck, service manager even said they were going to send our Enclave to auction. My wife just wants her Enclave back, after all this, she loves that car.
