Customer Question
I took my 2011...

I took my 2011 Buick Enclave to the dealership for an oil change and transmission flush. I just got a call stating they discovered that the timing chain gasket is leaking and there was oil in the pan. The cost to repair is $2400. My Enclave has about 34000 miles and every time I take it to the dealership they find a $2000 issue that needs to be fixed. Your thoughts??

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Buick Enclave. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Can't think of anything.
