#22 of 28 Terrible gas mileage
Feb 04, 2013 (7:22 pm)
Just wondering if anyone has had any thoughts recently on gas mileage for the enclave. I'm really disappointed as I seem to be getting only about 12 mpg (or 20.5L/100kms) on my 2012 cxl2 awd enclave. I also have 20 inch wheels and do all city driving. Is this normal?

How can the government let GM/Buick get away with false advertising. I purchased my 2010 Buick Enclave brand new. I was reassured by the salesman that the mileage was accurate... I've yet to hit either city or highway.
Each time I brought it in for service, I was told I need to get more mileage on it. Understood, well after 5000, 10,000, 15,000 and now 30,000 NOTHING HAS IMPROVED.... I bring it up now at my service calls and it's like talking to a wall.
I understand that one particular company is being forced to rebate owners each year for inaccurate MPG results FOR LIFE...
Is there any such program by General Motors or what rights(If Any)do we have.

We're sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the fuel economy on your Enclave.
The EPA's fuel economy estimates are designed to allow consumers to comparison shop. Your fuel economy will almost certainly vary from EPA's fuel economy rating, which is based on a number of factors, such as weather, road conditions, your driving and maintenance habits, and your use of air conditioning. For more information on how your fuel economy can vary, or tips to improve your fuel economy, please visit Your MPG Will Still Vary and Gas Mileage Tips on www.fueleconomy.gov.

We have a 2012 Buick Enclave Convenience FWD. Right now, it has 12,000 miles on it. Just got back from a trip from Las Vegas to San Diego. Our Fuel Economy was at 20.2 MPG for the trip (according to vehicle) all Highway there and back. Around town/city driving we get 16-17 MPG. I have yet to see the 24 MPG or even close. Cruising down the highway at 65mph on a flat road the onboard computer will read 22MPG......then drop as soon as you move up to 70mph.
#28 of 28 Average Fuel Eco Higher then before??

2008 Enclave, AWD I was getting 14 L per 100 km..not sure what that is in mpg. Now it is 17 L per 100km. Only thing that changed recently is a car starter was put in. Car runs fine.. any ideas?? Thanks
