We have a 2019 Enclave and we are curious how many miles can you drive before feeling uncomfortable. We think our 2011 gave us more miles than this 2019. We are 76 years old, but at 100 miles seem to start feeling it.

Our 18 Avenir has the same problem. Seats have never been comfortable. And the front passenger seat seems to be at a slight sideways angle.

Sometimes, if I sit too far to the left side of the seat I feel the hard vibrating alert device in the bolster under my thigh. I slide over slightly and everything is fine. If I was a larger person I could see those vibrators being a problem. Other than that, I drive 240 miles to visit family several times a year but have not had any fatigue. I have not noticed an angle to the passenger seat.

Unfortunately the 2018+ seats are very poor IMO and easily the most uncomfortable of any vehicle I've ever owned. They're flat, hard, have minimal cushioning, and literally have a slab of metal right below the surface along the sides for the vibration (which I turned off and never use). I have to use a cushion on longer trips.

Have a 2012 and much thicker seats than the 2019.

Interesting. We were coming from a 2015 Honda Pilot, and we felt the seats in the Buick were pretty comfortable. My wife and I drove to Florida (from Rhode Island) and we did some pretty long stints without stopping, and I never felt unusually uncomfortable after getting out. We've got a 2020 with the ST trim.

My 2009 Enclave is very comfortable - no problems on long drives. GM should have just used the same seats (don't fix what's not broken). Some MBA cost accountant at GM probably found a way to save $20 using cheaper seats. I know they made the sheet metal cheaper. My 2009 feels much more solid than the new ones, whose sheet metal is a lot thinner.

Got called again she said "Jim in shipping: No one can hear him"
I go to see Jim in shipping !!
