2011 Buick Enclave CXL1 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
When we started our automobile research we had a number of requirements. The car had to be 4WD because of our location and sometimes elongated winters. It had to be comfortable, quiet, handle well, get reasonable gas mileage, allow my small stature wife to sit comfortably while driving and have enough cargo room to tote our Old English Sheep Dog in spoiled comfort.
This last requirement eliminated a number of fine candidates and pricing further shaved the list. We finally came down to a GMC Acadia or Buick Enclave. The Buick wasn’t originally on our list due to pricing but with manufacturer and other discounts it was brought into our budget.
We could not be happier. The car is quiet,
Quiet ride, handling, adequate power.
