It is roomier & more comfortable than similar vehicles. Lots of great features.

2012 Buick Enclave Base

I personally love my vehicle, it has saved my life! With two kids, plenty of room for their car seats. There are bucket seats, and a third row as well for additional seating. It is a very spacious vehicle. After driving this vehicle, when I ride in SUV's that other members of my family have, I am thankful that I chose the Buick enclave because it is roomier and much more comfortable. The trunk is much larger than similar vehicles I have been in. My sister has a traverse and my stepmom has a Denali Acadia, and I feel the enclave is much larger. I love the back-up camera feature, and the hands free open/close of the back hatch. There is a storage compartment in the back where I can keep my ice scraper and other things that I want to store in the car, but also keep out of the way. There is also a sunroof, and the seats have many adjustment capabilities for your preference of support for your back while riding. Plus, the seats lay down for even more storage! It drives very smooth and is a quiet vehicle, which is great as well. As for the air/heat controls, the driver and passenger can set their own separate temperatures, and the back has its own temperature control panel as well. The center console and glove box are very well sized, and there is an extra storage compartment on the dash! All around, I am very pleased with this vehicle and would recommend it to anyone!

Enjoyable, nice, convenient, loved, ample, value, excellent: enclave.

2012 Buick Enclave

The Buick enclave is a reliable vehicle that starts every time you turn the key. As the owner of this car I am not inconvenienced by problems or breakdowns. I need to do my routine maintenance (oil changes, brakes, tires, rotations etc. ). The comfort of the enclave is a great experience to behold. Riding in the vehicle you can hear nothing from the outside! It is an extremely quiet ride. The seats are so very comfortable also. The lumbar support is skillfully engineered to provide a pleasant place to sit while riding. If you have long legs or have been shopping there is plenty of roomy space available. The vehicle easily seats seven people. The third row seats are easily accessible with the tilt up second row captain seats.

2012 Buick enclave good and bad.

2012 Buick Enclave

It is a great, reliable vehicle. Gets good gas mileage. 3 Row seating and easy to fold down seats for added storage space. Has a nice sound system with a nav. system. However the nav. system fails to keep up current to today's cell phone standards. We've since learned the following year it came out with a much better nav. system. We since replaced the radio system to one using autofit, which is a convoluted solution to pushing your cell phone GPS app out to the car head unit display. That cost us nearly $500 and knowing what we've learned afterward, I would not advise to do that. Just use your cell phone GPS display, it is not that much smaller.
