Acceleration is not bad from a dead stop. However, if you are going 35-40 and want to accellerate to pass - it feels very sluggish (nothing I can't live with though). I received a personal message from Buick saying they are fixing this with a software update that will be available free at dealers by the fall.MsS42 said:when i test drove the enclave i had no problem w/acceleration. i clearly think that is a complaint of lead foot drivers. some people want a car to make skid marks when taking off... slow down people your obviously going to fast.
