senkler said:2008 Enclave, 107k miles and the wave plate failed today. In the two years I have owned the car it has been in for shift solenoid, transmission solenoid, water pump and now the wave plate. I am deeply regretting ever buying this vehicle. The luxurious interior and smooth ride do not make up for constant issues on a well maintained vehicle.
Firstime Buick owner - let alone the Enlcave part. BUT, 2008 CXL AWD 68k mi. I think it is still on its' original wave plate. I am the second owner.GoldEnclave said:I am sorry about your car's wave plate and transmission problems. Being a first model year vehicle, the 2008 Enclave certainly has its share of issues. :sosad:
Yes, at about 105,000. Just yesterday the stabilitrack/traction lights went on as well as the engine light. Plus, it seems to be slipping a bit... so to my dealer's this morning.medicrxdoc said:HOIII: just curious if you changed the fluid at any point in those 135K miles?
About when it should have been done according to a routine maint schedule.HOIII said:Yes, at about 105,000. Just yesterday the stabilitrack/traction lights on as well as the engine light. Plus, it seems to be slipping a bit... so to my dealer's this morning.

Luckily she was only 1-2 miles away. I did a quick test drive and only reverse, neutral and first would work. Got it back home and parked it in the garage. Had it towed to dealer today...thanks Onstar!
I actually had high hopes that my dealer knew what was going on when I spoke to him on the phone when he immediately offered up a free rental car to get me past this. BUT, when I showed he just stated that it was going to be later in the week before they even get to it because a lot of transmission work at the moment (doesn't that seem strange!!). I asked specifically about the "Wave Plate" which he quickly asked what is a wave plate?, that he has worked there for 20 years, 12 hours a day and has never heard of a wave plate. Then I ask about the TSB that specifically refers to the wave plate, and his response was a quick there are thousands of TSB's. He pretty much made it out like I was crazy. Didn't feel good about it at all.
I have always defended this car knowing that I was buying the first model year and even dealing with the steering column issues, faulty cam shaft sensor, leaking front cover that required pulling the engine to fix, etc. I bought the vehicle and have done all recommended service at this dealer. I certainly hope they can offer some assistance here.
I wish there was a way to look up how many of these have been repaired by this specific dealer in order to educate this service tech. I don't beleive for a second that this guy isn't aware of what's going on.
