The Buick enclave third row can fit an actual adult comfortably!!

I love the new design and the fact that there is a quicker pick up when driving. It drives more sporty than the past body style. I love the space you get in the third row and the trunk. You can fit adults in that third row and we didn't see that kind of space in any of the comparable models we looked at. These were the two features that win us over every time with the enclave! It is an extremely comfortable ride and the trim and technology are all excellent. I love that I can plug my iPhone in and control it with the car play function. What I do not like about it is the automatic turn off feature when you are sitting at a light. I know this is supposed to be more energy efficient but I wish there was a way to turn off this feature if we didn't want to use it. I know that in the Toyota highlander you can turn that specific feature on and off. The other thing that prevents me from saying I love this new model is the way it starts up really rough sounding sometimes. For a brand new design and a car less than 2 years old I think that it should still be starting nice and smooth.

Rearview mirror camera is awesome!

My 2018 Buick enclave has quickly become my favorite car! It is very roomy - seats 7 with bucket seats in the 2nd row. The trunk space is unreal for a 7 passenger SUV! We looked at so many 3rd row SUVs and the enclave, by far, has the most amount of space. It is very easy to get in and out of the 3rd row. My favorite feature in my car is the camera rear view mirror. It has a wide view that practically eliminates the blind spot and makes changing lanes or merging onto the freeway super easy and much safer. I also love the heated and cooled seats in the front and my kids love the heated bucket seats in the 2nd row. We have already been on several long road trips in this SUV and there has not been any complaints about discomfort from my kids. The only thing that bothers me with my car are the covers on the moon roofs. For being such an expensive car you would think they would have put a more sturdy cover for the inside of the car. They rattle a lot and get very annoying. But that is probably my only complaint I could come up with.

Keyless entry and start and I like the way our gear shift stick is made.

I love the leather interior of our Buick and all of its features. I particularly like the double sunroofs along with the back-up camera and park assist. I wish the trunk would open by using our foot underneath the car when my hands are full and I would also have loved a DVD/movie feature for road trips. We have a base model but it is roomy and it fits my family of 5 and our dog very comfortably with plenty of trunk space even with 3rd row rear seats sitting up. I cannot wait for the new models to come out. Our young family are big fans of the Buick enclave.
