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

Best Buick Yet! — Good looking head turner. Quiet, handles well, powerful, great traction, priced right. Just feels safe. Kids love the rear seat DVD player and the back up camera/GPS combo is great. I recommend this car to anyone with a family or who travels a lot. It is a great road cruiser.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Appearance

Cons: Looks like it's for someone my age!

Perfect Realtor-mobile — This is the best Realtor Mobile there is! My Enclave has every option available and is fun to drive. I don't think that Buick emphasizes the 24 MPG enough for a car that easily hauls 7 people (8 with the middle bench seat) plus stuff in the back. GPS, remote start, electric folding mirrors, video screen, back-up camera, and Bose speakers get the most "Oooohs"

Pros: Great gas mileage and lots of space.

Cons: It doesn't hover very well.
