    2008 Buick Enclave Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Buick Enclave

    • We've been quite impressed by the engine, which is found in a number of other GM vehicles, including both of Buick's sedans. Those two cars, though, won't tow 4500 pounds like the Enclave can.

      - Automobile
    • The ride is surprisingly dynamic, with little body roll even on some winding, shoulderless rural asphalt.

      - Car and Driver
    • The Enclave stands out for its quiet ride. There's something to that "Quiet Tuning" marketing speak. The Enclave gets several things at the factory that its intradivisional counterparts don't: an acoustic laminated windshield and front-door side glass, special damping material on the underbody (tar), and triple door seals and engine mounts. You don't have to raise your voice much to be heard by any passenger.

    What reviewers liked least about the Buick Enclave

    • It just felt a little weird, though, doing farm chores in a vehicle dressed to go to the opera.

      - Automobile
    • We detected some transmission hesitancy accelerating up a grade, which would only be exaggerated if all eight possible seats had lumpy butts in them, adding to the 5000-pound curb weight with all-wheel drive, but this is a minivan replacement not a sports coupe.

      - Car and Driver
    • It's too heavy for the 275-horse, 3.6-liter variable-valve timing V-6 under the hood.

      - Motor Trend

    Best one-liner about the Buick Enclave

    • It's a composed, perfectly capable, not-too-expensive living room on wheels.

      - Automobile
    • All in all, the Enclave is a solid, well-made vehicle down to the reassuring thud when you shut the door.

      - Car and Driver
    • Thanks to the Enclave, Buick has rejustified its existence.
