2019 Buick Enclave Transmission, Power Equipment Problems

Buick Transmissions are a Big Problem

2019 Buick Enclave SUV Listed on Consumer Reports 10 Least Reliable Cars List

2019 Buick Enclave Transmission, Power Equipment ProblemsNumerous 2019 Buick Enclave SUV owners have complained about transmission problems, engine issues and stalling since they got behind the wheel of their brand new cars, a problem that landed the vehicle on Consumer Reports least reliable list.

Buick, which is the American manufacturing division of General Motors LLC., sells more than 1.4 million vehicles worldwide. The brand’s number one market is in China where 80 percent of these vehicles are sold.

The large 2019 Buick Enclave SUV, however, targets the U.S. market and has a sizeable $40,000 to $55,000 price tag to go with it. It’s popular among motorists with families for its 3rd-row seat bank. Certainly, anyone who buys this vehicle is not going to be happy when the SUV starts shuddering at speeds of under 30 mph. It doesn’t get any better, in fact it gets worse, as the vehicle exceeds that speed.

Owners who have taken their SUV to the dealership are told it’s probably due to too much lubricant in the transmission at the assembly plant. They offer to flush the transmission, but one owner complained it made matters worse. Another remedy offered to Buick Enclave owners was to replace the transmission sleeves and some other parks, but it also didn’t work.

The issues with the transmission have put the 2019 Buick Enclave on the list of Consumer Reports 10 Least Reliable Cars for 2019. Similar problems existed on the 2018 Buick Enclave, but the problem has persisted.

Fortunately, this popular SUV has a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty and a 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty.  It’s a good idea to take your vehicle for repairs before it’s out of warranty, but make sure that you save your invoices even if you do not have repairs made. If problems persist while it’s still under the original manufacturer warranty, you may have grounds for a lemon law claim against the manufacturer.

Here is a list of common complaints about the Buick Enclave:

  • Slow response
  • Fluid leaks
  • Shaking, shuddering grinding noises
  • Issues with gear shifting
  • Problems with torque converter
  • Check engine light
  • No reverse
  • No 3rd or 4th gear
  • No 1st or 2nd gear
  • Slipped gears
