Its pretty sad that I was 'hoping' it would happen - my wife was furious and I told her, no this is a good thing..................GoldEnclave said:I am sorry to read about your Enclave's wave plate failure. At least yours is still under warranty. My drivetrain warranty will expire toward the end of November due to the 5 year limit. At about $2,000 to repair, from what I understand, the cost to repair is substantial, but would be only about 4-5 monthly payment for a new car instead. It is still a more affordable bill from my perspective. Unwanted, but more affordable.
