Update: Buick Enclave Recalled Over Fuel Pump Leak, Stall Hazard
General Motors is recalling certain 2020 Buick Enclave SUVs which were sold with a fuel pump jet nozzle that may have a plastic burr remaining from the manufacturing process, possibly causing a blocked nozzle and an insufficient fuel supply to the engine.
“Insufficient fuel supply can result in an engine stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash,”
This recall began on November 16, 2020.
What’s the Problem?
This recall affects Buick Enclave vehicles from model year 2020, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The diffuser component of the Roof-Rail Air Bag (RRAB) inflator on affected Enclave SUVs may not have been properly crimped to the inflator and could separate from the inflator during airbag deployment, NHTSA said. If the diffuser separates from the inflator during deployment, RRAB performance may be degraded, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
GM is notifying owners and dealers will replace the defective airbag modules, free of charge.
This recall began on September 14, 2020.

What is the Class Action Lawsuit Against Buick Enclave?
In 2020, a class action lawsuit was filed against General Motors over the loss of power issues in 2013 – 2017 Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse, 2013 – 2016 GMC Acadia and 2017 GMC Acadia Limited vehicles.
According to the lawsuit, the loss of power is caused by a fuse block defect that can cause vehicle safety issues, including stalling, loss of acceleration, loss of power steering, and/or loss of power braking.
While this class action alleges fraud and Consumer Legal Remedies Act claims, it is easy to see how the engine bay fuse block defect may also support individual lemon law lawsuits. To date, GM has paid almost $1 billion to settle civil and criminal cases arising out of an ignition switch defect.
