    I Would Definitely Buy Another. My Favorite Car To Drive. — This is a beautiful and reliable car with excellent interior finishes. The color of the interior is just a bit too light for my tastes, but it still looks good after 8 years and 138,000 miles. I would like to purchase another with newer options like Internet or Bluetooth.

    Pros: It is a beautiful car that rides very well. The quality and reliability have been good. My husband keeps it in tiptop condition even with over 138,000 miles on it.

    Cons: A little hard to get into the third row seats.

    Silver Bullet — This a great vehicle which can have 7 passengers for a fun trip! Captain seats in back with a 3rd row bench. Captain seats can adjust for longer legged people or move forward to give a little more room for the 3rd row. The Enclave gives you the feel that you have total control of the road especially in the winter. Very reliable

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Beautiful, solid, drives wonderful

    Cons: gas mileage, but hey who drives an SUV for gas mileage :-)

    Buicktiful — This car is just awesome, quite and comfy interior, great looking exterior. Head lights give a perfect vision at night. Very safe. The 3.6 liter engine gives surprisingly good performance for this SUV that is on the heavier side. Over all very nice vehicle.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Beatiful and comfy

    Cons: MPG could be a little better

    Perfect For All Occasions. — After owning this car for three years and putting 70,000 miles on it. I still don't have the heart to get rid of her. The car continues to impress me and others around me. This car is a keeper. Nothing more than regular maintenance to keep her going. Maintenance on this car is not expensive. Still drives like the first day I brought her home. The dual sun roof is amazing.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fits six (6) adults with comfort. Gets great gas mileage.  Great Bose sound system. Has plenty of cup holders and aux plugs for the kids.  Plenty of room. Has a great look. My Buick is an 2008 and it still gets lots of attention. I'm stopped often by strangers asking how I like driving it.  

    Cons: The price tag.  Navigation should have came basic with this vehicle. Besides that perfect SUV.

    Clear — I love this car, I ordered from the Manufacturer in 2008. It has been a great family car, and it has alot of nice options. It has a very comfortable ride especially on long trips. The kids loved the DVD system.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfortable, handles good, quiet cabin, lots of room for kids and pets, loaded with options.

    Cons: Gas mileage could be better 17mpg in town, 20 highway

    Good For Large Families — We purchased this car because we wanted 8 passenger seating. The seating is comfortable and the cargo space is great. The car lacks power for such a large vehicle and the fuel economy could be better. We will likely trade this in for a Ford Flex or a Ford Explorer which both have better fuel economy and power, but only seat 7.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Seats 8

    Cons: Lacks power and has had maintenance problems

    Buy It. It's Like A Minivan But You Won't Get Laughed At. Support America And Gm. — Excellent quality. XM radio will always keep you entertained. Reasonable performance for a luxury crossover. Can be expensive, but it is worth it. It's more of a pleasure to drive than it is fun. All in all, if you are looking for affordable luxury, head to your local Buick dealer. This car beat the Acura MDX, the Lexus RX350, and the Mercedes R-Class and costs THOUSANDS less.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Quietness, affordability, safety, and the fact that it is American built will guarantee relaxed driving.

    Cons: None
