Defect SummaryGm is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 buick, lucerne; cadillac dts; hummer h2; model year 2008-2009 buick enclave; cadillac cts; model year 2007-2009 cadillac escalade, escalade esv, escalade ext; chevrolet avalanche, silverado, suburban, tahoe; gmc acadia, sierra, yukon, yukon xl; saturn outlook; and model year 2009 chevrolet traverse vehicles equipped with a heated washer fluid system (hwfs). a recall was implemented in 2008 to add a fuse to the control circuit harness to address the potential consequences of a printed circuit board (pcb) electrical short. however, there have been new reports of thermal incidents on hwfs modules after this improvement was installed. these incidents resulted from a new failure mode attributed to the device's thermal protection feature. the significance varies from minor distortion to considerable melting of the plastic around the hwfs fluid chamber.
Consequence SummaryIt is possible for the heated washer module to ignite and a fire may occur.
Corrective SummaryDealers will permanently disable and remove the heated washer fluid module. an updated page for the owner manual will be provided and inserted in the owner manual to document that the feature has been permanently disabled and removed from the vehicle. the safety recall is expected to begin on or before june 11, 2010. owners may contact buick at 1-866-608-8080, cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, saturn at 1-800-972-8876, gmc at 1-866-996-9463 and hummer at 1-800-732-5493 or at the owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.

 Our 2008 buick enclave began leaking water onto and under the dashboard from the sunroof. not only has this been a known problem since 2008, but there was an actual recall that year to fix this leak. for some reason our vin number was excluded from the original recall but it is experiencing the exact same issues that the recall was to address. this leak can cause several safety issues including corrosion and failure of airbag systems, the fuse panel, the blower motor that operates the defrost/defog function, and a buildup of mold and mildew. the dealer told me that my fuse panel is shot and needs to be replaced. i suspect that i have other damaged electrical components as well. i have attached the url's of several sites which reference the extent to which this problem is occurring with these vehicles. it is obvious that the initial recall did not cover all of the vehicles with the underlying problem and now we are stuck with a dealer quote for $1900 repair that does not include the blower motor and airbags. i would appreciate a prompt response as i can't drive in the rain and am concerned about hidden damage that could affect the car's safety. thanks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnykjlhusxi video of water-damaged damaged blower motor due to this known problem with the leaking sunroofs. http://www.enclaveforum.net/index.php?topic=3411.0 contains the 2008 enclave recall notice http://www.faqs.org/car/buick-enclave-2008/visibility/ lists the gm technical bulletins for this enclave leak issue http://www.enclaveforum.net/index.php?topic=2039.0 34 pages of posts regarding the leaking sunroof issue http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/webx?14@189.v7qqaxgahvh@.f17fc13/53#msg53 several pages of complaints on an edmunds forum http://www.edmunds.com/search/results.html?q=enclave+sunroof+leaks&src=usergen&ac=&x=29&y=11 etc. *tr

 Just bought my 2008 buick enclave used with 30,000mile on it last month. since that time i have experienced several dead batteries after driving the car most of the day. i had turned off the radio, air conditioning and un plugged any adapter in the outlets as precautions after the first episode but the problem continues. i browsed several forums that suggest this is a wide spread problem with this car as well as the gmc acadia. someone even said that gmc had a racall for the acadia that solved the problem, curious to know what that was. very frustrated that my $35,000 car has more problems than my 2003 van did upon selling it!!! anyone know what the end problem was with the acadia was so that i could guide my dealer in resolving the issue.

 Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6) 2008 buick enclave vin [xxx] gm case #[xxx] has had electrical failure resulting since october 2008 in total vehicle being inoperable and once began smoking in the right side of fire wall when jump started. dealer has replaced all wire harnesses, bcm, 2 radio head units/navigation, all light bulbs, check for water intrusion, bpp sensor calibration, lgm bracket, checked for chaffed wire, replace both sun visors. vehicle was in the shop for 30 days in last 6 weeks and a total of 42 days since vehicle was purchased new with 61 miles on september 2, 2008. the vehicle would not start 45 minutes after being picked up from dealership last friday, 5-28-10, after being in shop for 2 weeks. contacted dealers service department at that time. no phone calls from dealership since, i stopped in at dealership on tuesday, 5-25-10 to ask for another service. dealer has not picked up vehicle and i spoke with the general manager of the dealership regarding a buy back or trade in this morning. gm customer service offered to pay 2 months car payments, detailing and an oil change at no charge. i told them i wanted this vehicle to be safe for my 22 month old, his friends that ride in this vehicle and my wife. gm told me that they will not consider a replacement vehicle, a gm engineer would not be sent out to make sure this vehicle was fixed properly and this was their final offer. i am concerned the vehicle will catch fire with my family in it. when the car looses power, none of the electronically controlled safety features operate as it is totally without power as if the battery was taken out of the car. this vehicle has been taken to the dealership on a flat bed tow truck on 2 occasions. *tr

 After not driving my 2008 buick enclave for 3 days, when i tried to start it the battery was completely dead and i couldn't get the key out of the ignition. i had to have it jump started, after just 9,000 miles on it. apparently, after doing some quick internet searches, this is a wide-spread problem with the buick enclaves. *tr

 Tl*the contact owns a 2008 buick enclave. the contact believed there was a design flaw with the easy exit seat function. when the key is placed in the ignition, both the seat and steering wheel are supposed to move to pre-determined positions, and then move back when the key is removed. the contact stated that the seat and steering wheel did not move back when the key was removed. for months, he attempted to have the dealer repair the vehicle, but his appointments kept getting pushed back. recently, the dealer stated that the issue could not be repaired because the vehicle was designed in that manner. the manufacturer agreed with the dealer. the current mileage was approximately 6,000 and failure mileage was approximately 500. updated 04-17-09 the drivers seat would move back when the key was removed from ignition. the steering column would also move up and forward. updated 04/20/09.*jb

 2008 buick enclave - 8 months old - 3200 miles. for no reason whatsoever the car would not start and the ignition key would not release. triple a came and jumped the car - dealer said there is no problem with battery or alternator. however, edmonds.com there are any number of owners expressing this problem. this is a problem that needs to be addressed. i have owned cars for over 50 years and never had a problem like this. *tr
