2012 Buick Enclave
2012 Buick Enclave
There was a time when the Buick Estate Wagon was a go-to car for well-heeled families looking for a big, comfortable cruiser capable of carrying the whole crew and all their stuff. Those wagons are long gone, but the needs they met still exist. Today, we like our big family cars in crossover form, and Buick's Enclave stands ready to serve. Conservatively handsome, not unlike the clothes worn by its owners, the Enclave's styling is now five years old but doesn't look dated. Although the Enclave is based on the same platform as the GMC Acadia and the Chevrolet Traverse, the Buick is distinctive inside and out. As in its corporate counterparts, the lone engine offering is GM's 3.6-liter V-6, which comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. Its 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque are stout enough to move the hefty (4780-pound) Enclave without laboring and can tow up to 4500 pounds. Fuel economy is not bad at 17/24 mpg (city/highway) with front-wheel drive; opting for all-wheel drive lowers it to 16/22 mpg. Unlike some three-row crossovers, the Enclave's third-row seats can accommodate the occasional adult or lanky teen. Luggage space behind them, however, is fairly limited. As you might expect from a Buick, the Enclave rides comfortably and quietly. The interior is nicely finished, and plenty of luxury options are available. One we'd particularly recommend is the backup camera, as visibility out the back is not great in most larger crossovers. The Enclave is not at all retro, but its character and capabilities are classic Buick.
Top  Safest X Overs B
With the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently upgrading its crash testing and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration thinking of doing the same, crash test results are on people's minds. With more than 60 crossovers already on sale – and at least another half dozen coming in the next twelve months – the not-an-SUV, not-a-car, not-a-wagon segment is being closely watched by customers and manufacturers alike.
2012 Chevrolet Traverse Front Three Quarter
General Motors is recalling some 2011-2012 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave crossovers for a potential failure of the windshield wiper arm in snow belt states.
2013 Buick Enclave Interior Teaser
We knew it was just a matter of time before Buick’s version of the Lambda fullsize crossover got a mid-cycle nip and tuck. Why so sure? The wraps were just taken off its flannel-wearing sibling, the GMC Acadia. Already considered by many to be the best-looking of the Lambda triplets, the changes are likely to be less extensive than the fairly comprehensive nosejob given to the Acadia.
Buick Envision Concept Profile
General Motors previously hinted it was bringing four world debuts to the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, but only confirmed one -- Cadillac ATS compact sedan. That said, details surrounding the General's Detroit gameplan are slowly leaking out ahead of schedule.
GMC Acadia Denali In Lansing Profile
A GMC Acadia Denali this week marked the one millionth example of General Motors’ Lambda crossover line. The Crystal Red Tincoat crossover was built at GM’s plant in Lansing, Michigan, on Wednesday.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2008-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia and 2009-2013 Chevrolet Traverse and 2008-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles. In the affected vehicles, increased resistance in the driver and passenger seat mounted side impact air bag (SIAB) wiring harnesses may result in the SIAB and seat belt pretensioners not deploying in the event of a crash.
Consequences
Failure of the side impact air bags and seat belt pretensioners to deploy in a crash increase the risk of injury to the driver and front seat occupant.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected harness connections with soldered connections, free of charge. The recall began on June 16, 2014. Buick owners may contact the owner center at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet owners at 1-866-694-6546, Saturn at 1-800-553-6000, and GMC owners at 1-866-996-9463. GM's number for this recall is 14030.
