My beautiful Buick enclave!

2008 Buick Enclave CX

My Buick enclave is spacious and comfortable with third row seating that allows me to bring 6 other people along for the ride. It is a nice looking interior with faux wood and leather accents on the dash and steering wheel. Heated leather sweats that power adjust for a comfortable ride. There are airbags throughout the car offering for better safety. A sun and moon roof with shade covers that keep the car cool. Slightly tinted windows give some privacy. Sliding center console with two cup holders and automatic shift on the console that also offers standard shift options when car is in low. This is helpful in slippery road conditions. There is plenty of legroom. The car is sharp looking with chrome accents and luggage rack.

Buick Enclave Quick Pro and Con

2008 Buick Enclave CX

The car is very reliable and strong. I was in an accident one time and the chassis proved to be very strong and the safety features saved me from any injury. The transmission is a little worry some, due to the fact that it jumps or jolts when shifting from 2nd to 3rd. I read this could be fixed by taking it to the dealer and letting them install new software though.

Buick enclave high maintenance but pretty.

2008 Buick Enclave CX

The Buick enclave is a very comfortable vehicle, and the interior and exterior styling is really nice too. The biggest problem with the Buick is that you cannot do any of the maintenance yourself, and the need for major repairs seems to be a regular occurrence.

2008 Buick Enclave; very nice vehicle

2008 Buick Enclave CX

I am very happy with the 2008 Buick Enclave. I have had very few problems as far as maintenance. Factory DVD player is not reliable; it does not always play DVDs. The sound system is excellent. The interior is very comfortable for grown adults in all seats.

- Jess C

It is a great small SUV that is easy to drive.

2008 Buick Enclave CX

It is a luxury vehicle for a non luxury price. I love the third row, all the space. The automatic back hatch! My kids love the DVD player. It is so much easier to drive than my last vehicle but I am still in an SUV. I also love the all wheel drive option!
