2008 Buick Enclave: Lasting Impressions

March 19, 2008

What do American IdolcontestantKristy Lee Cook and our long-term Buick Enclave have in common? They've both been labeled "absolutely forgettable."

Although it's AI judge Simon Cowell who delivers the bad news to Kristy on a weekly basis, it's my friend Lydia who's continuously unimpressed with the Enclave. Not that she doesn't like the Enclave, it's just that as many times as she's been in it, she can't seem to remember what it is.

"What is this?" she asked yesterday when she climbed into the passenger's seat for the umpteenth time... "Oh, it has a third-row seat," she said nodding her head in approval.

"Yeah," Ithought to myself. "Same as it did last week."

Once we were on the road, she again commented about the pleasant interior, comfortable seats, good-looking controls.

As much as she likes the Enclave in the moment, it just doesn't seem to leave a lasting impression.
