Editor's Overview

The 2016 Buick Enclave is a large, upscale 3-row crossover SUV. In addition to offering a more spacious interior than rivals, Buick's 7- or 8-passenger SUV continues to undercut competitors like the BMW X5 in starting price and long-term ownership costs. Comfort and quiet are other key traits, but there's no denying the Enclave is getting long in the tooth.

The automatic truck lift and the SUV height.

My vehicle is very comfort, I love the three row seating because I have 5 grandkids and it is very roomy. I recently had the oil change and had them put it on the machine to check for problems and it came back that it has no issues. The backup feature is the best invention ever. Having the ability to receive phone call through the stereo is great too. The two hatch room roofs with the sunscreens on them I love them. Seats are extra comfortable also.

Buick Enclave is sleek, smart, and practical.

I enjoy this vehicle because it is comfortable and able to seat a good number of people. Additionally, I have used my car to load a lot of work materials because when seats are folded down, there is a tremendous amount of room. The only downside to the car is the amount of fuel it consumes and the front doors are very heavy and too often swing closed on passengers.

- Carol S

Classy sophistication with room for everyone and all of their stuff.

I like the style of the vehicle. I also love the cargo room is has. The third row seating it great when I bring extra kids with us. I don't like that the battery died within 4 months, and the plastic under my seat broke very quickly as well. I have heard that my model and year have had a lot of problems, so I'm kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop with it.
