Enjoying the car, but the milage is horrible

2012 Buick Enclave Leather Group 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


We purchased our Enclave in July 2012.
After 5 seat cars, we are really enjoying the space and can now carpool with others and bring the dog on trips.
I wanted captains chair in 2nd row and 3 spaces in 3rd, and most SUV's can't do that.
It could always use another USB port but we juggle just fine.
My only major complaint so far is the milage.
This winter it has been averaging 16.4 miles per gallon.
This thing chews through gas like you wouldn't believe.
Over the summer, it was slightly better, but we were doing more highway traveling.
With nothing but metro driving, it is sobering how much we are spending on fuel.

Clearance is ok, but check measurements - this is lower than hoped.

Best Features

Captain's chair in second row, but still having 3 across the back in 3rd row. Huge cargo space. Heated seats in front.

Worst Features

Make it have better milage! Make the rear door less picky about closing. The clearance is not as good as we thought it was and still scrape the bottom when of roading.

Our 2012 Enclave FWD averages 17 city and about 20-21 HWY. We took a trip to California (250mi each way) and got 20MPG there and 21MPG back. Not too good either
