What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Buick Enclave MPG

Buick Enclave Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2009 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD More than reasonable for a 5000 lb vehicle. Benefits of aero design ( for an SUV ) and six speed transmission both contribute.
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD for an 8 passenger vehicle that can tow 4,500 pounds. I cannot complain about 19.3 mpg city and 24.7 mpg highway.
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Honest 23 mpg on the freeway.
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD 24 - 28 mpg summer highway driving
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Better than competition with regular gas
Buick Enclave Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2009 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Well under (15-20%) below the EPA ratings, though the engine is STILL brand new (<400 miles total).
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD It actually gets great mileage for its size and weight, but hey, its not a Prius.
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Poor 22mpg on highway
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Wish it better but I expected it for a heavy veh
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Hey, at $4.00/gallon getting only 22 mpg hurts. We take the econo-car most of the time.
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Fuel economy is good for suv this size.( As big as Tahoe )
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD In town much less than advertised. O.K. (18-19) on freeway.
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD This is the one thing that is a weak point. at 12-16 MPG, this car could use a larger and more efficient engine. Had GM not folded, there was talks of a hybrid version (which still may come out as a Caddy) which we would definitely buy without hesitation.
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Bad around town
2008 4dr SUV 288-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Car is still in break-in period, but not seeing anything close to advertised mileage.
