Pros: all of them
Cons: city gas mileageThis 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!
Not Your Grandpa's Buick
Pros: Leather heated and cooled seats
Cons: Fuel EconomyThe Enclave is great for long trips, or just around town errands.
Pros: Nav system
Cons: Lack of engine power.I bought this vehicle in Oct 2009 and traded it in Apr 2010. It's a nice vehicle to look at, but I found it to lack power and driver side foot space. When you closed the front doors it sounded as if padding was missing between the door and the car. This vehicle also, had difficulty backing over the 3' curb leading to my driveway.
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
Pros: navigation system
Cons: tire presure sensors----when you rotate tires you have to take back to the dealer to reset the system
Advice: enjoy it,the enclave has alot to offerthis vehical was everything that was advertized.sharp looking and loaded with all the asessorys needed.it drove and handled fine
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.
