#2 - Power Steering Pump problem of the 2010 Buick Enclave
The car involved is a 2010 Buick Enclave. The steering wheel often but not always locks up when driving at low speeds and making sharp turns, for example at a stop sign or making a u turn at a traffic light. It does not matter whether a right or left turn is being made. It takes significant force to turn the wheel to "unstuck" the steering wheel and make the car go in the intended direction, and immediate brake force is often required to avoid hitting a curb or another car that expected me to complete the turn. I took the vehicle to a Buick dealer this week and they supposedly isolated the problem to the steering pump (part 20954812) and steering gear (part 22902260), for a total of $2000 to repair. I believe this to be a safety concern because I have no confidence in my car's ability to go in the direction I intend. This issue happened on Jun. 7, 2013.

#3 - Power Steering Pump problem of the 2008 Buick Enclave
The vehicle involved was a 2008 Buick Enclave. Steering locked up while turning at low speed, almost hit another car in the process. Buick knows this is an issue on the Enclave platform, still, no recall. If I did get into an accident and a fatality occurred, litigation would have been in order. Is this what Buick is waiting for? someone to get injured, this is a safety issue. The original sticker price for my 2008 Buick Enclave was north of $40,000, wow and they can't get something as simple as a steering rack and pump right? this needs to be a recall, I just had to pay $2800 to get this fixed, and not really sure if it will or will not happen again in the future. I just can't believe there is no recall for this, apparently Buick does not care one bit about their customers and definitely does not want repeat business. I will tell everyone I know to avoid Buick at every expense and never, never, never buy an Enclave. I am also considering selling the Enclave and buying something that is worth it and safe. This issue happened on July 17, 2013.
#4 - Power Steering Pump problem of the 2008 Buick Enclave
The car was a 2008 Buick Enclave. The steering on my car is almost impossible when I am driving under 15 mph. Places such as parking lots, backing out of my driveway, etc has become dangerous for me to maneuver. I am very concerned for my safety. I took it to the shop today and they're telling me it's a known issue but there is no recall. . . It's going to cost me over $2,000 to fix. The power steering pump and rack need replaced. It's completely ridiculous for Buick to not stand behind this!. This problem occurred on Dec. 3, 2012.

#7 - Power Steering Pump problem of the 2009 Buick Enclave
The car was a 2009 Buick Enclave. In the last 2 months, I have had multiple problems with the power steering tightening and locking up, narrowly avoiding running off the road or into another vehicle several times. When I took the vehicle to the dealer for a diagnostic, they declared that the power steering rack had malfunctioned and that there were metal shavings in the power steering pump. Both the power steering rack and pump would need to be replaced. It was also determined that this was not caused by wear and tear. When I researched similar complaints online it appears that this is a recurring problem with the 2008 and 2009 Buick Enclaves due to faulty equipment by gm. I am very concerned that this make result serious accidents and request the NHTSA to look into this matter. This issue happened on Tuesday, May 15, 2012.
