EYE CATCHER by SLOJO on 07/07/2010. Trim: 2010 Buick Enclave CXL 2XL AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Ride is quiet and comfortable. Easy folding seats 2nd and 3rd rows. Automatic tailgate, camera/sensor are good safety aids for backing. OnStar is always a good addition as is the navagation system. Fit and finish are great. The Enclave is an "eye catcher" in its outside design and appearance. Absolutely zero trouble in the six months we have owned the vehicle.
Cons: Nit Picks-Tilt Wheel blocks part of instrument panel. Rear glass does not open independent of tailgate. Arm rests on BOTH sides of captains chairs to improve comfort and security. Dash storage is hard to reach. Same for secondary controls located in the center console. Console storage and cupholder availability are totally inadequate-the Highlander puts Buick to shame on this issue. Battery belongs in the engine compartment. Larger tires (20 inch) make the ride harsh. Hill hold and decent assist should be added. If the Enclave is to be THE luxury leader in the SUV class, 8-10 way power seats for driver and pass. Overhead grab bars all door. Light in the glove box. DON'T SKIMP.
Overall review: Buy it. You really will like it. The Enclave is a great family ride. Mileage could be better and an option for the Northstar V8 would be great, but there is plenty of zipp in the current drive train. There is a firm stable feel to the ride, which I attribute to the wide stance of the Enclave. Remote start is a cool option on these 100 degree days or those zero degree mornings last winter. The ladies of the house like to drive the Enclave and that is a plus in anyone's book. Cargo area is easy to load and larger than most SUV's. Once you master the instructions, voice command features are nice. Plenty of leg room in both rear seat rows.

Perfect for a family by Red Rider in AR on 12/31/2012. Trim: 2010 Buick Enclave CXL AWD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: I love this vehicle! Love the way it looks, feels, drives. My kids (ages 7 & 11) can get in and out easily and like the ability to control the radio from the back; they also like the number of charging outlets in the Enclave. The rear seats fold easily, making more room for grocery bags, etc. My husband likes the roomy interior, the finish of the cabin, the smooth ride and smooth acceleration. He feels the chassis is responsive and enjoys the ergonomics of it. It is a very quiet vehicle to drive.
Cons: Two downsides: poor gas milage from one who primarily drives in the city and there is a large blind spot. I do find the navigation system to be confusing, so I use my iPhone and the USB port in the center console is in a difficult location to plug into while driving.
Overall review: Love this vehicle! Would buy this again for our next vehicle.

Wonderful Family Car by Momof3 North Alabama on 07/05/2012. Trim: 2010 Buick Enclave CXL FWD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: LOVE LOVE LOVE the look and feel of this vehicle. My 3 small girls get in and out easily and plenty of room for friends! Excellent travel vehicle. Kids can easily control rear heat/AC. Love this vehicle for family transportation. Remote back hatch is a HUGE plus, SO convenient. Most enjoyable vehicle I've owned. Definitely feel safe in this. Had one fender bender, where the other driver was REVERSING up a county road, UP a HILL, his car suffered a ripped off bumper and shattered tail light, Enclave suffered a minor scratch on front bumper that was buffed out by detailer.
Cons: A few complaints, I wish there were some sort of outlet near the 3rd row to plug in charger/DVD player for kids without stretching cord across back aisle. The remote starter is a little lacking. Had one in my old Chevy Equinox which started at least 50 feet further than the Buick. There is a big blindspot due mostly to the wide stance of the vehicle. Gas mileage is definitely poor.
Overall review: LOVE <3
