2008 Buick Enclave CXL 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I leased this vehicle to replace a Lexus RX 330. With 2 babies on boards I needed a 3 rows Luxury SUV with decent fuel economy. PROS: Any SUV of that size has a V8. The Enclave has A V6 with decent performance and fuel economy (for the size/weight). It is beautiful inside and out. Very comfortable ride and minimal road noise. CONS: Questionable build quality and reliability. I have already been to the dealer for serious repairs multiple times. I do not trust what the dealer did to repair the car. Thank God it is just a lease. My brother just visit me and immediately notice how the SUV is falling apart. On the other hand, 3 years ago, he though my 4 year old Lexus was almost brand new.
Build Quality. Dealer service needs serious overhaul, specially if Buick's target is Lexus. Rain Sensing wipers. If you are a previous Lexus owner, stay away from Buick.
