Buick enclave is a good investment.

I love this vehicle because it is so nice and has ran great for years. It is a nice car and a very good investment, I love the interior of my Buick enclave and I love the sound quality of the radio I also love the customer service of the people who work for Buick and how nicely they treat their customers and how helpful they were when it comes to investing in a nice car. It shines, it is very roomy, and can fit as much as our pilot but with less bulk/boxy.

I love how people are surprised at how spacious the inside of my vehicle is.

I love my Enclave! We purchased it brand new in 2013 and haven't had a single issue. I am the mom who refuses to buy a van and I believe this is the closest thing to a van without it actually being one. It is huge inside and having captain seats has made it so easy to get my kids in and out of the car. There’s lots of storage and multiple USB ports. More than anything, I love how safe I feel in my car.

2013 Buick enclave - roomy and comfortable.

My enclave is very roomy. I really like the captains chairs. The features are adequate. I like that it has blind spot and cross traffic alerts. I do not like the power; it is quite slow. I like the style of the vehicle. I also like that it has an easy entry/exit system for the driver’s seat. My vehicle does make an unidentified noise.

Safety Recalls (2)

Air Bags Mar 17, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Mar 17, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V118000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2008-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia and 2009-2013 Chevrolet Traverse and 2008-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles. In the affected vehicles, increased resistance in the driver and passenger seat mounted side impact air bag (SIAB) wiring harnesses may result in the SIAB and seat belt pretensioners not deploying in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
Failure of the side impact air bags and seat belt pretensioners to deploy in a crash increase the risk of injury to the driver and front seat occupant.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected harness connections with soldered connections, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Buick owners may contact the owner center at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet owners at 1-866-694-6546, Saturn at 1-800-553-6000, and GMC owners at 1-866-996-9463. GM's number for this recall is 14030. Note: Vehicles repaired as part of Customer Satisfaction Campaign 10085 and special coverage 10335 have already had the subject condition repaired and therefore are not included in the safety recall.
Seat Belts May 20, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
May 20, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V266000
Summary:
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2009-2014 Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured April 14, 2008, through May 14, 2014, Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured June 6, 2008, through May 14, 2014, and GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured April 9, 2008, through May 14, 2014, and 2009-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles manufactured April 14, 2008, through March 18, 2010. In the affected vehicles, the flexible steel steel cable that connects the seatbelt to the front outboard seating positions may fatigue and separate over time.
Consequence:
If the steel cable becomes fatigued and separates, the seatbelt may not properly restrain the seat occupant increasing the risk of an injury in a crash.
Remedy:
General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, repair and replace the lap pretensioner, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-462-8782 (GMC), 1-800-553-6000 (Saturn). General Motors recall number for this campaign is 14187.
