Love it!

I was downsizing from a Tahoe and test drove several vehicles (Ford Explorer, Infiniti QX 60, Chevy Traverse, Toyota 4Runner, and Acura MDX.) The Buick Enclave Premium had plenty of space, a smooth ride, was reasonably priced, and had all of the bells and whistles I was looking for so it was the best choice for me and my family.


First purple car!

I love the color for one I always wanted purple and I got the amethyst and the interior rocks. It was fully loaded being the premium line and it has features in it I only dreamed of owning. I am never letting it go unless it's to get a newer model in the far future.


Good car

Had an issue with the transmission. A sensor went bad and leave in the shoulder. Other than that, the car is good so far. Bought it with 59k miles. There is 68,5k right now.
