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!

Enclave: Dependable, Comfortable and Attractive

2012 Buick Enclave Base

My 2012 Enclave is very comfortable and pleasant to drive and to be a passenger. We have not had any problems with operation of the vehicle. One thing that doesn't work well is one of the daytime running lights. It has a mind of its own and doesn't always work. I have seen other Enclaves on the road with the same problem. I would buy it again.

Buick Enclave! Smooth ride and modern

2012 Buick Enclave Base

Absolutely love my Buick Enclave the 3rd row seating is extremely spacious and super easy getting the kids in and out of. Rides really well on the road and doesn't feel like you're drive a boat around. Stylish and practical which are a big plus especially for someone who wasn't a big minivan type of person.

Comfortable, lots of space, and smooth.

2012 Buick Enclave Base

It is got lots of room, comfortable seats, drives pretty smoothly. It comes in lots of colors and road trips are comfortable in this one. Features Bluetooth and other features found in newer cars. Steering is pretty good, and overall handles pretty good.
