2011 Buick Enclave, Gold Mist
By wayne107 on
2011 Buick Enclave CXL2 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Purchased our Enclave in 2/11.
It replaced a 1998 Toyota Avalon. We've put more than 7,000 miles on it driving on trips down to San Diego, and up to Sacramento and Redding.
It is a joy to drive and ride in.
Passengers have commented on its ride and quietness.
So far there has been nothing to require taking it in for service (other than its first oil change) or replacement under warranty.
The Gold Mist color is proving to be a good choice for not showing dust/road grime.
Best gas mileage has been 21.9 on mountainous highway driving at 75 mph.
The dual memory driver seat makes it much easier for switching drivers.
The power liftgate with remote opening is greatly appreciated by my wife.
The large Nav screen is easier for our aging eyes to see, especially when it's showing us the backup camera view.
The heated and cooled front seats have been nice too!
The roof rails are a solid design that limit attachment points for tying down cargo of different sizes.
The dash buttons have only symbols, no labels to indicate what the button function is.
Some of the symbols are small, and even difficult to determine what they represent.
We got the cashmere colored interior so the seats wouldn't absorb too much heat when park outside.
But the floor mats and carpets showed so much dirt that I replaced them with black ones after only one week.
