Default 08' Enclave Premonitions

My wife just purchased a used 08' Enclave. We bought the car at 67,000 miles with the intentions of keeping it for a while. The carfax is great and there were no recalls on the vehicle. Although, after reviewing the car, via online reviews and such, it appears as though the vehicle is doomed for failure, or a large continuous financial strain. With that being said, I understand that it is more likely for someone to take there time to write a bad review than a good one.

I would love anyone's opinion/advice on/of this vehicle.

Are there any 08' Enclavers that have had good experiences with this vehicle?

And from a mechanical view point what are some things I can prepare for or do for preventative measures . . . if any?

Thanks to all for your time.

I wouldn't worry about it. GM has sold enough hundreds of thousands of the Enclave and its little brothers (Acadia, Traverse) there's bound to be some lemons. The engines are standard GM Corporate High Feature V6s, which are in everything from Malibus to Camaros to, well, Enclaves.
