2011 Enclave Owner Reviews (4)
The Dream is over.
I remember in 2008 I had saw this car and thought to myself what is that ? I would like to own one of those one day... the luxury of it... the pretty style... the classic look I wanted to have that type of car one day.I kept an old ad in my notebook of a picture of the cxl 2008 white pearl Enclave. Knowing how high priced they were... it was just a dream. in 2015 I made the attempt to try to buy a 2011 Buick Enclave.it was a used car with high miles but it was still my dream.I was walking on air.7 months later the dream was over. My husband is driving down the highway and the car just cuts off and rolled to a stop.I'm in tears when my husband calls and tells me ************** like the engine may have gone. We went on the internet instantly to see the frenzy of complaints about this car.knowing the amount of recalls that on this car we took it in to be looked at and confirm that our engine had gone out and it would be $8,700 before we could have it all fixed. We did not have that money and we still don't have that money and five months later we still are not driving that car and still paying for the insurance and payments on the car. we approached GM about help with the cost assistance since this engine has problems to find out that this engine only warranty up to 100,000 miles...after ********* a fool who buys the car. My guess is that this was a Fool's dream.I am in my late 50s I'm married and I have two foster kids which we adopted.I thought I could finally go for my dream not another traditional van to haul kids around but look classy and be able to have the room for children and their friends.I am embarrassed for wanting to do better ...look better... feel better in a nicer car that I always wanted. Maybe I should have held out for the Honda whose vehicles are known for still going well after 200,000 miles. Anyhow I am sad and without a car and trying desperately to find something else we can drive It just hurts me to know that I always liked this car always wanted this car and out of all the used cars we've gotten ...this one was the most trouble and the most heartbreaking.
It only takes one thing...

We recently purchased a new 2011 Enclave CXL, AWD with nearly all options. We are VERY disappointed to find that the front passenger seat cushion is fixed in place - it cannot be tilted. If it were properly positioned to start with, this wouldn't be a big deal, but it isn't properly positioned - the seat cants uncomfortably forward. This is an obvious cost cutting move that has no place in a $50,000+ automobile. To make matters worse, when contacted, Buick said this is a "design feature". Really? After having shelled out big bucks, like the sensation of having major surgery without benefit of anesthesia. I have read reviews where some remark about the wonderful quality of the wood. This is wood as much as "Nauga" in Naugahide is real leather. It's certainly quiet, I'll give you that. But the vehicle falls far short of being a luxury vehicle in any sense of the word. And shame on Buick for deliberately cheating the customer with such a flagrant omission in a class of automobile in which 8-way adjustable seats were long ago considered a basic element. And how much does it cost to put some lighting in the car - footwells, glove box, etc., like cars had about 25 years ago. Must be another one of those "design features". The bad seat and Buick's response to inquiries about a resolution is a deal breaker for me. There won't be another GM product gracing my driveway again unless a visitor happens to park there.

I've only had my Enclave for 8 weeks; however , I'm very pleased with it. I've owned quite a few Lincolns, as well as a couple of higher end Hyundais and GM cars. NONE of them compare with this vehicle. I'm proud to be seen driving it. For the first time in my life I bought a RED car. I'm 6 ft. 2 and weight 200 lbs, and I'm very comfortable in this car. LOTS of room and plenty of performance as well as very handsome interior, that is not simply black and silver as so many cars are today. All in all, a GREAT CHOICE.

I have my truck for 2 months now and I cant find anything wrong to say. The Truck handles great, very fast, corners great and and all the options are great.
