Great To Drive Anywhere ... Waiting For Reliability As Mileage Goes Up. — Great acceleration, braking and handling with comforts and conveniences. 21 MPG highway and 16 city. Appearance appealing and modern. Fit and finish is average to above. Problems with driver's seat 3 times, recall on wind shield washer and a few software updates for transmission and oil change indicator.

Exactly What I Was Looking For! — Absolutely love it! Drove to Georgetown because loved the deep purple color of this vehicle. Even though 2009 model, have free OnStar and XM radio... I was glad I made the drive from Houston to get a better deal...My advice to others, LOOK AROUND!

Great Travel Car! — Great SUV. Drive with quality and style! Performance is OK for a 6 cyl. Looks great, Drives great! Gas mileage is a little on the low side but it is a big 6. We have loaded this truck / car to the max on many occasions to and from Colorado, all over Texas. Including hauling my son and two dogs one as big as a person! Plenty of room. Love it!

2009 Buick Enclave Cxl — Disappointed with interior as the leather seats are not all leather. The sides are nylon or something, Why? The DVD is loud and takes longer than my Lexus. Also, as these are typically used for family haulers, the tracks for the 2nd row captains chairs are not covered and the kids constantly drop things that fall in them. Can't they make something for this?

Pros

Very comfortable to drive, quiet
Seats 6 adults with ease--the 3rd row seat is what sold us on the car--very roomy
Low maintenance schedule--simple to service
Heavy feel with the extra insulation, thick glass which adds to quiet ride
Great sunroof in front and skylight in the back add natural light to the car
Tinted windows keep hot sun out

Cons

Actual gas mileage is 13.5 mpg in city with 6 adults 21 highway
One person in car on a flat surface (perfect conditions)  the mileage improves to 17 city, 24 highway

We Really Enjoy The Room And Comfort Of This Car — We have been on several trips and have really appreciated the quiet ride and ease of driving. After driving 400 miles you feel relaxed. Couldn't say that with our previous SUV. The Bose sound system is clear and strong. The navigation is simple to program and use. We like the cool seats in summer and seat warmers in winter. The storage is wonderful with the seats folding flat to the floor we could easily get a treadmill in the back.

Pretty But A Dud — First 4 months waited for new transmission due to factory defect, luckily all major repairs all warranty but defect after defect made this a very unreliable car. Good looking car and very comfortable interior saves this car as acceptable. 125,000 miles but have to say it wasn't easy

Great handling and driving car.  Perfect for my family of four.

Cons

Typical GM stuff.  Reliability drags cost of ownership down at about 60k.

09 Buick Enclave Cxl Awd — A very comfortable and enjoyable car to drive any time. Only downside is cost of ownership which is a little bit of a downer for what this car cost. Will buy another but, I might look at leasing or a better service plan to cover those repairs.
