General Motors has released a Customer Satisfaction Program for certain units of the 2021 to 2024 Buick Enclave over an issue of a concerning noise coming from the rear of the vehicle.
Select 2021 to 2024 model-year Enclave examples may have a condition where some customers notice a humming, whining, or squealing type of noise coming from the rear of the vehicle while driving anywhere between 20 to 70 mph. Certified GM technicians are to insect affected vehicles, and perform a test drive in an effort to replicate the noise. If this is found to be the case, the techs are to replace the torque tube assembly, which should take a little less than four hours to complete.
There are a number of vehicles covered under this Customer Satisfaction Program, including:
- 2021 to 2023 GMC Acadia
- 2021 to 2024 Buick Enclave
- 2021 to 2024 Cadillac XT5
- 2021 to 2024 Cadillac XT6
- 2021 to 2024 Chevy Blazer
- 2021 to 2024 Chevy Traverse
It’s worth noting that the cause of this noise is likely a damaged bearing.
As a reminder, the current Buick Enclave is powered by a single drivetrain configuration, consisting of the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, and the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. FWD is equipped as standard affair, while AWD is optional.
In regard to structure, the second-generation Enclave rides on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform, while production kicked off in June 2023 at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.
Notably, the 2025 Buick Enclave is set to introduce an all-new generation that will bring about all sorts of changes, including an exterior styling inspired from the Buick Wildcat EV Concept, a reworked interior with tech goodies like GM Super Cruise, and a fresh powertrain lineup likely consisting of the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, rated at 328 horsepower and 326 pound-feet of torque, and the GM eight-speed automatic transmission.
