Hi there, Do you mind if I ask you, how much you ended paying for it and which accesories and style did you get on it?

The total package came to $38,5000 which includes OnStar Navigation (voice), Hands Free phone, XM Radio, DVD package, automatic lift gate & 5 year warranty on all parts. The style is Cocoa Mettalic which looks great in good weather and in the rain!
Let me know if this helps.

#8 of 12 What about the power?
Aug 16, 2007 (7:17 pm)
Am seriously considering buying the Enclave but am very worried about the lack of power (i.e. pulling out into traffic, passing cars, etc.) I have been reading about in the forums. I'm not trying to get anyone down about their purchase - it's a beautiful vehicle and a no-brainer if power is not an issue. My local dealers are out of them so I can't test drive one. Would love to hear from as many owners as possible. Thanks very much.

Great question! I was a bit concerned about this issue before I purchased my Enclave YET when I drove it for over 10 hours on a family vacation trip on the major interstate highways, it PERFORMED BETTER THAN EXPECTED! I got up to speed faster than I anticipated with this V6 engine! Once I reached my MPHs, the Enclave cruised through traffic! Overall, the Enclave has THE POWER!!
Let me know if this helps.

My wife and I test drove the AWD CXL and it has good power overall. It probably isn't as fast as the Acura MDX, but it does the job. Why spend an extra $10K on the MDX, which has less options and just a little more power? We have researched and driven just about every SUV on the market and the Enclave is our top pick! You get tons of standard options, lots of cargo space (more than some of the largest SUVs on the market!), 5 star crash ratings with tons of safety features, 3 rows of seats that can comfortably fit 8 adults, and much more!
The only two (very minor) things that I'm not crazy about is the wood steering wheel and the rear visibility. I'll probably get used to these things and will forget after a while.

I drove a CXL AWD a few weeks ago as a rental in CA and it drove great. I did not notice any problems with power or the tranny trying to find the right gears. Highly recommend this vehicle. I plan on getting one in the next year.
#12 of 12 Setting Up the Navigation System
Nov 05, 2007 (1:52 pm)
I just bought mine and four Buick sales people and the service manager could not get the GPS signal to be received. The navigation manual only lists a few temporary reasons why this should be. Has anyone else had this problem?
