2013 Buick Enclave




If you're looking for an SUV that is gorgeous, distinctive looking and has decent gas mileage, than the Buick Enclave may be for you! 


The enclave averages about 19 MPG. I used this Enclave and only this Enclave for all of my errands during the week I had it and I went through 3/4 of a tank. I did take a decent trip to a large mall, it's about an hour round trip, so that was quite a bit of miles. 

For the base price tag of $38,445 this car is fully equipped and comes with a lot of features. The vehicle I received had a tag of $52,160. Some features I have come to love are the large center console, the heated and cooled seats, the back up camera, steering wheel mounted controls and so much more!



This Enclave is very stylish and has many features that everyone in the family can love!!
It has a Power sunroof with 2nd row skylight!
Entertainment System

It also has best-in-class third-row legroom of 33.2", The third row of this SUV is very large!
It has the 2nd row bucket seats and 3 seats in the third row, which means it's a 7 seater!

The 2nd row has Smart Slide which makes it easier for third row access. 

It has more Maximum Cargo Room than Mercedes R-Class, Acura MDX, Lincoln MKT, Volvo XC90 and Audi Q7. 
The max cargo room for this vehicle is a whopping 115.2 cu. ft. 
 In case that wasn't enough, the very back also has storage underneath!

This Enclave is equipped with Bose speakers, so you can be sure to have the best sound system on your block. 
The mirrors have Side Blind Zone Alert. So if there's a car next to you in your blind spot your mirror lights up! It will tell you! 
When you are in reverse and a car is coming behind you it will beep at you and let you know not to continue backing up. 

This SUV does a lot in the line of safety. They want to make sure you are as safe as possible while on the road!
Also with the Back Up Camera when you turn your wheel it shows you exactly where you're going and it turns right along with you.

The Enclave is truly a beautiful SUV and I highly recommend it. It has a lot of nice safety features, has plenty of room, gets decent mileage and is just beautiful!



*Disclaimer, I received a Buick Enclave for a 1 week test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle.

Nicole Q. said...

Wow, that's really nice. I've never seen the interior of one of those. Makes me rethink my next vehicle purchase a little. :)


Skye Moyer said...

LOVE that entertainment center!


Jennifer Van Huss said...

That looks awesome! I've never seen the inside of that car and I gotta say its pretty cool!


The Frugal Free Gal said...

Beautiful! We are currently looking around for a larger vehicle so this review was helpful! It looks roomy enough for my entire family! I love how the seats fold down (and the DVD players are a plus!)


QueenB said...

I love, love LOVE back up cameras. I hope it doesn't make people lazy about checking, but it's a safety feature that should be standard on all vehicles, IMO. That's a sweet ride!! Not your mama's Buick, that's for sure!


Krystle Smith said...

What an amazing car! Love the sun roof and console most


Zephyr Hill Blog said...

Love all that cargo space and the hidden storage compartment underneath!


MotherhoodLooms said...

That level of cargo space is crucial for my family! This might be something for us to consider instead of another mini van for our next purchase.


Danielle @ We Have It All said...

WOW I had no idea that it had so much room inside!! I love that it has an entertainment system - that's great to have. What a pretty car.


Sofia said...

Love all the features, specially the three rows of seats!! That would, alone, come in very handy when we have family visiting from out-of-state.

We are in the market for an SUV, thanks so much for showing me this one! Off to see it in person!


Ashley-Raye said...

This is much nicer looking than a minivan! Love the 3 rows of seats!


Remus said...

I love the heated and cooled seats feature!


amy tolley (amylynn73) said...

wow what a nice ride...looks great inside and out thanks for sharing


Sandy VanHoey said...

I want it....so many things I love like the Back up camera and the side Blind alert. These things are so important and I worry about things like this. If only I could afford one....


clc408 said...

I like the safety features, especially the back up camera.


Remus said...

I like that the mirrors have Side Blind Zone Alert


Janet W. said...

This has a fancy interior like a luxury car! I love the back up camera!


Mami2jcn said...

The entertainment system would be great for road trips.


Aline Grigorian said...

Nice! So much space in this one too!


Gianna said...

Very nice.


Amanda said...

We actually looked at these a couple of years ago when we bought our Acadia but they were just out of our price range! They are super nice though!


Erin E. said...

What a gorgeous vehicle! Buicks were always my mothers favorite car. Then they got too pricey.


Timshaun said...

I love this vehicle. I want a backup camera in my next vehicle.

kathy pease said...

Talk about riding in style I would love this for long trips that can be sooooooooooooo boring!


trishden said...

Wow, looks like a great SUV but too pricey for my pocketbook. Love all of the room but since my youngest just graduated from college I'll be looking for a sedan. Thanks for the review.


Chris Alejandro said...

Great style and features. I really need an upgrade soon.


Olivia R said...

That vehicle looks soooo long. It has some great features,but is high on price even for base model. I have the Hyundai Tucson Limited and at $32K with 10yr warranty it has pretty much al, the features I need...well except AC vents in the back. This vehicle has so many features. Not sure if cooling seats are necessary...I love in south Florida and don't see a need, but heat is nice. Rear back up camera is fantastic...I love it and wouldn't purchase a vehicle with out it great review


Rebecca Parsons said...

Buick is a higher quality vehicle that is part of GM. It is the reason the price is a bit high, but I always say you get what you pay for. I am trading my Traverse in for an Enclave and can't wait.


ALee said...

This seems like a nice vehicle but I just couldn't get past the color of the exterior and interior. Not a fan.


Jennifer Speed said...

Looks very stylish, I especially love the heated and cooled seats.


ALee said...

I really wish we could afford this vehicle right now. Its' so nice.


ufg8trj said...

my friend just got this suv in black and she loves it!


Vicki Hale said...

My goodness what an awesome car! I love the back up system and especially the blind spot blinking mirror! Thanks. Vicki.


Katie said...

We recently got a minivan because I didn't think an SUV would have enough space - your review is making me second guess myself...


Natalie Parvis-Nichols said...

Wow! There is so much space! I love ow versatile this vehicle is.


Laura Ann said...

Wow this car is so nice!!


JJ Caraway said...

I love the Buick Enclave with the heated and cooled seats, back up camera and third row seats I thought I had won the Lottery. This really is a nice car.


Kimberly said...

Thanks for the detailed review!


Ashley Albert said...

My grandparents have this car and I LOVE it! If I could afford it, I would buy in a heartbeat.


TR said...

Great review! I have always loved the look of this vehicle!


Tammy Woodall said...

I've been a Buick fan for years. This SUV is fantastic. I currently own a Buick Sedan. I didn't realize Buick's SUV offered all these safety items. Thanks for the information.


Kimberly said...

Beautiful car!


Barbara said...

This review is very helpful for someone who is beginning their car shopping adventure. Thanks for taking the time to review the car and provide a detailed review!!


Kimberly said...

This looks like a really great car to take for a spin!


RICHARD HICKS said...

This is a beautiful vehicle and the backup video is wonderful!


Kimberly said...

I'd definitely love the chance to test drive one of these!


Mel said...

Ooh! As we transition from needing the minivan to just needing the extra space that an SUV provides, this is definitely one I'm going to keeping the list!


Jordan James said...

Ooooh! :)


Sonia Mishra said...

I love the interior in this one. A lot of good car reviews.


Kitty Iecvan said...

This buick looks very stylish. And the navigation system looks like it'd be useful!


Sarah Hayes said...

this looks incredible. it has several nice features that I love. the dvd player would get a lot of use here and the nice interior is my fav too.


Kimberly said...

This looks like a fun car for a family road trip!


Sandra VanHoey said...

Beautiful, this is the type of vehicle my son needs to get when he replaces his. So roomy for him and his 5 children and so many awesome features. I love it!


Della said...

We are looking at SUV's and are quite impressed with Buick. Your review was wonderful and let us know more about all the wonderful features.

Shannon said...

This is a really nice car with a lot of features/amenities. Thank you for the review.


Connie Sowards said...

When we looked at Buicks almost 3 years ago, we ended up leasing a Buick Verano. Thanks for showing how the Buick Enclave is from your own experience. It helps to know whether or not we made the right choice for my family.


jopb said...

I love the look of this Buick Enclave and the heated and cooled seats


Michael Lambert said...

This is a really nice vehicle. My wife likes these to. I like how much space they offer and I like 3 rd row seat.


Shannon said...

This really sounds like a nice SUV and thank you for this review for people that are looking to get one used.
