Mine was preowned but practically new when I got it. Great looks and design concept, but disappointing quality. The gears stripped out in the power seat control and was replaced (I'm not Fat); The entire steering column was replaced to eliminate a persistent knocking; There is a constant rubber- on-rubber squeak when you turn the steering wheel, which the dealer tells me he has brand new Enclaves with the same problem and Buick has no fix; a water pump went out last month; in cold weather the front end cracks and pops and sounds like the FWD drive train and suspension is flying apart; drips oil. Generally speaking, it's looks good and is comfortable, but is a typical, poorly built U.S. car
Interior space layout and seating; XM/Nav/Reverse-Camera system; Good MPG (Ave. 22 MPG on a recent 2,000 mile trip to Colorado); comfortable ride and quiet, except for of all the squeaks, creaks, and rattles due to poor fit and finish; V-6 engine will get up and move when you need it to.
Tire size exclusive to Enclave with only one Michelin and one BF Goodrich to choose from, Hi $$. Poor build quality that results lots of squeaks and rattles for a high-end, luxury car. Front end suspense and drive train doesn't have a solid feel. At cruising speed it shifts in and out of OD a lot.
