I was unprepared for how many strangers would stop me in parking lots to compliment how good-looking this car is and ask me questions about it! (This is overall a good thing though!). Both men and women!
Hubby, kids and I just LOVE this car. The double sun-roof and captain's seats in the back are my favorite features. LOVE the wood and chrome, so luxurious, and it has more storage than I could have dreamed. The day we drove it home, I kept finding a new nook or cranny at each place I moved my eye... and the under-console storage goes elbow deep! Love the rear backup camera, lumbar support adjustment, and especially the cupholders in the doors in the backseat... no longer are my kids' sippy cups being handed up to me after every sip, so I can place them in a floor-level cupholder like before. The kids can reach these from their carseats!
And there is SO much space behind the third row - this was a surprise too. In my old Mercury Mountaineer, you HAD to fold down the third row to put anything bigger than an umbrella in the back. But the Enclave has a good two feet deep of space when the third row is still up, which gives me more than enough room for groceries, boxes, lawn chairs, rows of pansies, whatever small- to medium-size load I am hauling. This is infinitely easier than having the seat folded down and stuff rolling everywhere and ending up on the floorboard. Now we can haul our in-laws when they visit and still carry what we need in the back.
I actually think it drives easily, but I'm no car expert... the only drawback is a high-pitched grinding sound when you accelerate, which I ONLY have noticed when sitting in the third row.
Of course I wish the car cost less - we always want to spend less money - but this is the most luxurious car you can get for this size and price range! Best of all, it LOOKS like an SUV on the outside, yet is set up like a minivan on the inside (perfect for us 30-somethings who would rather be shot than be seen driving an actual minivan). And yes, you get the same setup with a GMC Acadia or Chevy Traverse, but the Enclave blows them out of the water on luxury look. This really is a luxury car.
If I could gove it a 0 star I would.

The timing chain in this car busts in EVERYBODY. The review on this car is a 0. I bought this car less than 2 months ago and engine is blown. So now I have to pay for a car that Buick knew was junk...VERY UNRELIABLE AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE
Do frigid temperatures and harsh weather leave you cold on the idea of braving the elements in your car? When you’re piloting a vehicle that’s up to the task, wintertime driving isn’t so much of a challenge. Instead, it can be fun!
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
Henry Ford once famously told customers that his Model T came in any color they wanted, so long as that color was black. That was over 100 years ago. Today, the vehicles available to us come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, with a profusion of available options and features. Whether you're shopping for a quality used vehicle, or you want to take the plunge with a new car, 2017 is a great time to see what's available.
