2008 Buick Enclave Long Term Road Test

2008 Buick Enclave: Christmas Tree Duty

December 10, 2007

Yesterday I learned all about Snow Flocking.

But before I get into that I want to tell you how perfectly our 2008 Buick Enclave served my family on our annual hunt for the perfect Christmas tree. This year we chose a seven foot tall Noble Fur, green in color and handsomely bagged in white plastic for its short time atop the Buick. Last thing I wanted to do was scratch the roof of the Enclave, so I paid the extra $2.95 to have the tree bagged...

I didn't, however, have it Snow Flocked. I didn't even know what it was. Turns out to be white stuff that's sprayed all over your tree to make it look snowed upon. But it doesn't. Instead it looks like it was shot by a fire extinguisher.

Anyway, the Enclave handled the task so effortlessly this blog is basically empty. Next year I'm using our Mini.

Happy Holidays.
