2018 Buick Enclave Avenir AWD Review
says:
Love the car but it’s so expensive compared to the Traverse High Country. Also have to pay $2000 more to get the Avenir Technology Pkg. Positive thing is the 4 year warranty.

2018 Buick Enclave Essence AWD Review
says:
Very smooth ride! I liked the look of the redesigned interior (front dash!) However, when upgrading to the 20” rims, the smoothness wasn’t as noticeable. Also, with three kids under 10 in the car, the quietness of the ride is cancelled by the noise level coming from the back. I also felt like many woman I knew (50+) drove (and LOVED) this vehicle. I’m 33, not quite there yet :)

Power Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Traverse Premier AWD better.
"In all actuality, they are the exact same under the hood. This could be all in my head but I felt like the Traverse’s “get up and go” was a bit more than the Enclave."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Traverse Premier AWD better.
"So they are basically the same here, too. However, the rear exterior angles up more and is more narrow. Where the Traverse stays pretty wide all the way up."

2018 Buick Enclave Essence FWD Review
says:
Like the technology and features of the 2018 but the actual body and ride of the 2016 was much better wider 19” michelin tires than 2018 18” Goodyear and it was a taller bulky SUV This feels like a sedan and drives less smooth a stiffer ride and maybe less jumpy

2018 Buick Enclave Avenir FWD Review
says:
This is my new car and very disappointed As far as driving its fine, comfortable but the infotainment system is awful. With all the technology thats out there whatever engineer or engineer who designed this car must have never driven it once it was produced to work out bugs. For a car costing over $60,000 the windshield wipers are not auto sensing, something thats been around for years and year and my two previous cars had this feature. They tout the ability to connect up to 5 blue ray devices which is great as you can only use one at a time which is OK except its nearly impossible to change from one to another without having to pull over. If youre listening to a book on a device connected by blue tooth your phone wont answer using car technology which means youd have to physically pick the phone up to answer which totally is not safe and is why that feature is in so many cars. My two previous cars automatically stopped the audio on the device being used and you were able to answer the phone. My Acura had an auto answer feature meaning you didnt have to hit the call button to answer. The AC in the car is OK but a bit confusing on the syncing of front and back and there is no voice control which again I had in the Lincoln and the Acura. Thus, while driving you have to set everything manually, another safety factor ignored. All in all the infotainment system is quite disappointing. There are more things but I will close with Buicks support is awful as have had multiple conversations on there OnStar where the representatives new nothing and would put me on hold for long periods of time to go look up the answer and most of the time unable to answer. My most recent as we live in the desert where temps are 100 degrees plus, was again to an OnStar agent who again could answer my question and said would if be alright to call me back. That was fine and I also gave her my email address. Its been over 24 hours and Ive yet to hear anything and doubting I will. Ive yet to have the car serviced and have questions for them when I do have it serviced. Bottom line for me is I wanted to buy American but would I buy this car again, the answer is a big NO. I had purchased this car with the intention of keeping for a long period of time but that most like wont happen now as will put some mileage and do much better research on my next car.
