IMO.....Definitely purchase an extended warranty (preferably from the selling dealer) and where repairs will be made. I get great service from the dealership that sold us the Enclave and extended warranty.. Figure out your expected yearly mileage and purchased the warranty that best fits your driving expectations. The extended warranties usually have different levels of coverage and deductibles. The bigger the coverage.....the more money it costs. From my own experience....the extended warranty on my 2013 more than paid for itself.
