Buick Enclave Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Buick Enclave reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Buick Enclaves with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Buick Enclaves that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Buick Enclave lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Buick Enclave has been recently.
