Looks good but a few issues

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


The angle of the headrest tilts too far forward forcing my neck to not be able to be straight when driving. This is a design problem with this car. Another issue is that the cover for the sun roof is a screen only which lets some heat through so even with the sunroof closed you can feel the heat coming through on your head and also heating up the car. I have the basic sound package which is anemic in volume output. There is only one power outlet on the front console. There is a compartment on the dash which looks like it is a place to put glasses but being under the windshield will likely melt them in the heat. I traded a Rendezvous for this and the Rendezvous was actually a sportier drive.

Best Features

Articulating headlights are very cool on winding roads. This is a sharp looking car both inside and out. Lots of room. Back up camera and sonar is great. Bluetooth to phone is great.

Worst Features

Fix the incorrect headrest. Add an additional power outlet- you could not use an ipod and charge a phone or an external nav system with only one outlet.
