great car

This is the best car we have ever owned. This car performs well,is comfortable to drive and has had almost no problems. Great value for the price and lots of room when we travel.


It's a GM, I thought I'd Try one again!

This car has had almost everything replaced, the Water pump is the 2nd, I've replaced, it has 100,000 miles, electric problems have been Bad, it's very Hard to work on and the 4 cylinder engine is alright if you're not in a hurry, rides nice, drives nice, but little things just keep going out and have to be replaced, it already burns OIL, my German car has double the miles and doesn't use a drop, I'm never buying a 4 cylinder again, I'm just waiting for the Head gasket to blow, it's normal for 4 cylinders!


Best Valued SUV

The Buick Enclave has been a dream car for the price. Quiet, smooth driving and riding, roomy and enough gadgets to make the drive enjoyable. Better overall value than Mercedes and BMW equivalents. Would buy another.
