Believe in Buick's Quite Tuning by Ratler from New Mexico on 01/29/2014. Trim: 2014 Buick Enclave Premium FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Beautiful lines, smooth ride, very quite, comfortable seats, ergonomics, engine/transmission perform very well together. The Cocoa interior belongs in a 100K vehicle. The front seats are very comfortable and adjust to any position desired. Second row seats move fore & aft, recline and are comfortable. Third row seat is roomy. The ice blue perimeter enterior lights are a nice touch. The optional Infotainment System is amazing.
Cons: Probably the Enclave should have keyless ignition at this price point, but I have no problem with a key.
Overall review: In our search we drove the RX Lexus and SRX Cadillac many times. We just kept coming back to the Enclave. It is a genuine pleasure to drive on long trips. The engine has more than enough power and gets good mileage. The excellent rating by JD Power was the clincher.

Could be better by Mike on 05/07/2014. Trim: 2014 Buick Enclave Leather FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Awesome ride, very quiet interior. Very little wind noise. Better mileage than I expected.
Cons: No keyless push button start. No adaptive cruise. Small GPS/radio screen. Cant enter info in gps when moving, I understand not letting driver doing it, but if there is a passanger in the seat then it should be allowed. Afterall there are sensors that let the vehicle know there is someone in the passanger seat. Large turning diameter. Poor placement for rear wiper, defog, hatch release, shifter blocks wiew.
Overall review: Overall good vehicle if you want a large SUV.

Enclave is Awesome by Jimmy V on 04/02/2014. Trim: 2014 Buick Enclave Premium FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I love the Enclave, fit to finish the best SUV with 3 rows of seating hands down. The infotainment Center is easy to use. I could go on but until you drive one, driving is believing.
Cons: Wish the lift gate and a button close to the drive instead of on the lift gate. Most competitors have push button start, Enclave uses a key system. They do have auto start, so I can live with the key.
Overall review: The Buick Enclave is a vehicle that has been very well thought out. With many trim levels to choose from, with many options, they have what you’re looking for in a 3 row SUV. My wife had me drive the competition and I am glad she did.

My wife's Baby by The Mad Turk on 02/09/2014. Trim: 2014 Buick Enclave Leather FWD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Very non fatiguing when driving. Acceleration is great in my opinion.
Cons: Needs a better heater. Liftgate button should be on the side and not the gate itself. Had to get the leather seats, the clothe one were too soft
Overall review: Love it

Best 3rd Row leg room in the Luxury CUV segment by LA88 on 05/17/2014. Trim: 2014 Buick Enclave Leather FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The 2014 has a smooth and very quiet rides. The interior color and instrument dashboard are very nice and has the luxurious look and feel of a luxury car. The interior room is the best in it class especially the 3rd row seats area. My favorite has to be the ambient light that wraps around the interior starting at the rear doors.
Cons: C'mon Buick, this is a 50K 2014 car and it should have a keyless START button. Other room for improvement is the convoluted navigation screen and it’s not easy to read and use. Please integrate the Garmin GPS into the Buick line. LED tail light would be nice. The front seat should have all leather from top to bottom and not just the top half. The BOSE sound system is nothing special. Buick should consider adding the electric fold down 2nd and 3rd seats.
Overall review: I was in the marking for a luxury CUV (not SUV) with a true 3rd row seat under 60K. After months of research and reading pretty much all the online reviews, it came down to three cars. The Buick Enclave; The new 2014 Acura MDX, and the Infinity Q60. All three cars are within +- $1,000 so pricing wasn’t the factor why I chose the Enclave. The Enclave has the best leg room in the 2nd and 3rd row area followed by the Q60. I also like the smooth and quiet ride of the Buick comparing to the other two. Other little things like 87/88 octane and not required premium gas, 19” Michelin tires rather than 17”/18”. In fairness, there are features that I like from the MDX and Q60 that are not available on the Enclave. For example, the one-touch fold down chair in the MDX. The MDX also has the best mpg of all three, and the obvious - the keyless Start button.
