ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

2/14/2017 - SPARTANBURG, SC
MY 2008 BUICK ENCLAVE HAS BEEN AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN THE ENTIRE LIFE OF THE CAR. MY MAIN CONCERN IS THE POWER STEERING. IT HAS GONE OUT 5-6 TIMES IN THE 8 YEARS I HAVE OWNED THE VEHICLE.IF YOU WOULD LIKE INVOICE OF EACH TIME/DATE I HAVE THEM WITH THE EXACT PROBLEM. FIVE OR 6 TIMES IT WENT OUT.-- THREE AT SLOW SPEED LOW RPM TRYING TO TURN IN THE CITY AND AT 6 1 WT 230 IT TOOK ALL MY STRENGTH NOT TO HIT A CAR HEAD ON DURING THE TURN.THREE ON THE INTERSTATE TURNING OFF EXIT AN HIGHER SPEED. IF MY DAUGHTER OR GRANDDAUGHTER HAD BEEN DRIVING IN THE CITY THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD. BUICK EXTENDED THE POWER STEERING WARRANTY TO 150;000 MILES . I HAD THE LAST POWER STEERING PUMP PUT IN AT 149,432 MILES 11/23/16. MY CONCERN TO YOU AND BUICK IS ABOUT EVERY 25K POWER STEERING GOES OUT. I NEVER HAD A POWER STEERING PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 CHEVEY SUB WITH 160K WITCH WE STILL DRIVE--NEVER HAD A POWER STEERING PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 GMC DEN WITH 251K WITCH WE STILL DRIVE. .BUICK KNOWS THEY MADE A ENGINEERING DESIGN FLAWED CAR WITH THEIR FIRST ENCLAVE SUV AT THE EXPENSE IN MONEY AND LIVES OF THE 2008 OWNERS ALL 2008 ENCLAVES SHOULD BE GROUNDED LIKE THE 787 WAS BEFORE BOEING/FAA FOUND OUT WHAT WAS CAUSING THE BATTERY FIRES AND FIXED THEM!!.WHY IS A FLYING PUBLIC LIFE WORTH MORE THAN THE A DRIVING PUBLIC LIFE? IF YOU AND BUICK WILL NOT GROUND THE ENCLAVE THEN AT LEAST THEY SHOULD BE A FREE SAFETY CHECK EVER QUARTER FOR THE LIFE OF THE CAR FOR THEIR DESIGN FLAW PROBLEMS.I THINK THERE ARE 12. PS I CANNOT WRITE 6 TIMES SO I PUT LAST ONE ON 'WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN.

AIR BAGS

2/8/2017 - ZEARING, IA
I OWN BUICK ENCLAVE 2008. IT WAS PURCHASED IN OCT 2016. A FEW WEEKS LATER THE PASSENGER SIDE AIR BAG LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON. IT GOES ON AND OFF DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. IF YOU JUMP AND MOVE AROUND IN THE SEAT. SOMETIMES YOU CAN GET THE WARNING LIGHT TO GO TO OFF. BUT MOST OF THE TIME THE PASSENGER AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT IS ON. IT DOESNT SEEM TO MATTER IF YOU ARE 150 OR 225 POUNDS. IT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR MOVING OR SITTING STILL, IT HAPPENS IN THE CITY AND DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY, TURNING OR DRIVING STRAIGHT. IT IS REDICULACY UNSAFE FOR THE PASSENGER!
