2018 Buick Enclave Materials And Workmanship: Cons
YearComment
2018 Now for the not-so-good. But, to be fair, all of my complaints are of the "very good when it could have been oustanding" sort. Each time General Motors redesigns a car, it strives to improve its interior materials. Yet, while the new Enclave does have a much nicer interior than the original Enclave did, even in Avenir trim it still has a way to go before it seems as upscale as the Volvo's. I should also note, though, that according to Car and Driver the XC90 has an interior worthy of a vehicle twice its price. So the yardstick I'm using here is lofty. And that noted, a couple of the Enclave's interior bits could especially use more refinement. The shifter creaks when you grab it, and generally feels cheap and clunky. (One of the newfangled monostratic shifters that returns joystick-like to center after each operation, this new GM shifter is also confusing to use.) The sunroof shades require a very firm push upwards before they'll release. The second-row shade also requires far too much effort to pull it forward. Overall, though, a very nice interior. Just not outstanding. full 2018 Buick Enclave review
