2009 Buick Enclave CXL 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


We ordered our Enclave as we did not want a lot of the options on cars the dealer had on his lot. We have been extremely well pleased for the most part. We travel with our dog and there is room for the crate plus luggage. Last fall we traveled from Michigan to Boston and got 31-33 mpg on the New York Thruway traveling at the 65 mph speed limit. Coming home on both the Thruway and side trips we averaged 28 mph. Don't know what we get around town. We liked the styling inside and out which is what attracted us to the car after doing much research. Two of our neighbors were so impressed with the car they bought one themselves. One of them traded in a newer Lincoln cross over.

Best Features

We love most everything including Onstar. Have too as we keep our cars on average 10 years. I accepted the dealer's offer to take a tour of the factory and was mightily impressed with the way the cars are built and the technology that goes into not only the product but the production system.

Worst Features

Occasional transmission hesitation. Did have a problem with the automatic rear hatch not working properly after several months ownership. Took several weeks for the part to come in. The sun visors could be sturdier.
