2010 Buick Enclave CXL2 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Needed a "cruiser" to replace my 2003 GMC pick-up. Made up a Likes & Dislikes spreadsheet and went shopping. After many test drives, the Enclave won out. Really like the smoothness; the shifting; the acceleration/downshifting; where my knees rest on a long trip; and, the styling. Some vehicles tested had reddish instrument lighting which, was difficult to see during day - and, impossible to see with sunglasses on! So far, at 1200 miles I'm averaging 19mpg; it usually takes 3000 miles to get a true reading.
Styling. Comfort. Actually takes a full size reciever hitch for towing and, has a good towing capacity.
The "plastiwood" on the dash, etc. doesn't match the steering wheel; a vehicle in this price range should have real wood trim. GM has a propensity of putting the electrical connector too close to the reciever hitch - making it almost impossible to install the "dogbone" to secure the ball mount!
