    2008 Buick Enclave - CX FWD

    Absolutely love the exterior and interior of my Buick Enclave. The space is incredible. I have had to replace the transmission (still hving troubled), tires, alignment and my a/c for back rows does not blow cool air but instead hot scorching air. I've bought this vehicle back in the beginning of 2010 and have had enormous amount of maintence done. Being a female who has no idea about vehicles it has hurt my wallet but I'm not throwing in the towel in on this enclave

    2008 Buick Enclave

    Pros: all of them

    Cons: city gas mileage

    This is probably one of the nicest vehicles we've ever owned! We've had Fords, Nissan, Chryslers, Mercurys, Lincoln, Pontiacs and Chevys, but none came close to comparing to this vehicle! We have only taken it in twice in 40,000 miles for minor problems. One was a recall and the other was a power steering pump noise. It rides like a dream and has a very versitle interior. The exterior styling is great and we often get stopped to ask what it is and how we like it. If I had a complaint, it would be that city mileage isn't great (15 MPG average) but it does pretty good on the road (22 MPG average). We are due for for another vehicle in the next 6 months and this vehicle is definately on our short list!

    2008 Buick Enclave

    Pros: The comfort, reliability and the dirvers information center..

    Cons: It seems that the engine is note large enough for the size of the vehicle, when accelerating there is a defiente lack of power to get up and go. As if the engine hs to catch its breath before it goes.

    I have always been a die hard ford fan, this is my second non ford vehicle. and while I've never had any problems with ford, I am impressed with my Buick. I receive all sorts of compliments on it, everyone who rides in it loves it

    2008 Buick Enclave - CX FWD

    Pros: Quiet and smooth ride

    Cons: trying to find one.

    Advice: It's well worth the wait if you have to order one.

    Great ride, smooth and quiet. Fits my 6'5' frame rather well. Have not found another vehicle that competes. Well, maybe it's siblings, Acadia and Outlook, but only superficially. Standard features unbelievable. Dealer was great also. I found the vehicle using the locate feature on the Buick web site and my dealer went out and got it for me.

    2008 Buick Enclave - CXL AWD

    Pros: Nav/sat/rearcam

    Cons: My wife say's I'm an old man for buying it. (I'm 35)

    Advice: Buy it

    Great care all around in the design of this whip. Rides and handles better than anything else in the class. GM finished this thing and did not miss a detail. The Germans and Japanese have fallen behind this time.
