Disappointed with the 2013 Enclave
By briansal on


2013 Buick Enclave Premium Group 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Back in 2008 the Buick Enclave was a work of art, a revolution in cross-over SUV vehicles.
Unfortunately, I do not feel the same about the 2013 Enclave.
Buick did add some features, but they also removed or downgraded some important things.
The big selling point of this vehicle was supposed to be the Intellilink system with enhanced
navigation, but then they made the touchscreen smaller than before? Other things like Pandora, Stitcher, Photoviewer simply do not work.
Are they really selling a $50,000 vehicle that isn't even compatible with an iPhone?
Are you kidding me?
There is also an occastional low rumbling noise in the engine manifold when the vehicle is idling at a stoplight.

Best Features

Blue-tooth audio, redesigned front suspension, Blind-spot indicator, enhanced rear blower controls for climate control. The 20-inch wheels are nice. Enhanced front and rear-end styling. New ambient lighting inside the cabin.

Worst Features

Enlarge the touch-screen (make it like it was in the 2008-2012 Enclave; you certainly don't need all of that plastic trim around the screen). Bring back the 4-way lumbar controls. Bring back the fog lamps. Fix ALL of the software and compatibility glitches in the Intellilink system. Also, the doors have to be slammed a lot harder to get them to close. I don't think this vehicle was ready to be released yet. It needs work. You can do better Buick!
