At 2 pm today my wife and I will be picking up our new Enclave. It arrived yesterday at Heritage Buick in Peoria and we drove over to see it before it was prepped. Stunning!

Diamond white CXL AWD, with every available option. What an awesome vehicle. If GM keeps this up, they will be on their way to full recovery.

We drove the Outlook and loved it but had never driven the Enclave. Our first test drive occurred as we drove it home from the dealership today!!!! Love it. Just finished figuring out all the gadgets.

As for interior, we went with Cashmere. We have always been partial to tan interiors.

Thanks Rocketman. I just lucked into it. I left the Saturn dealer with a deal in hand for an Outlook. I drove down the street to a Buick/GMC dealer to look at the Acadia. They had one Enclave on the lot and I just happened to walk by it. It wasn't an AWD but the salesman said they were expecting a Diamond AWD anyday now. Well, I ended up cancelling that Outlook.

How soon do you reasonably expect yours?

Not soon enough Static. :banghead:
I'm hoping another Month and a Half or sooner, but with all the hold-ups I read about on the Forum, It might be August. :banghead: I'm happy for you. You really lucked out. About the only thing I can hope for is one might possibly come in fitting the description of mine and I will gladly take it off their hands.

We got ours last night!

We took delivery of our Enclave last night. In our case, this was a long, arduous process that began when Chrysler discontinued availablity of awd on their minivans. (We've had 5 of 'em over the years.) Since we wanted that option here in snowy NE Ohio along with three comfortable rows, hid xenon headlights, use of RUG (not premium) and the "X" factor: emotional appeal, our choices narrowed quickly. Surprisingly, the Pacifica wouldn't have been a bad choice. Nevertheless, after driving/testing the Audi Q7, Acura MDX, Chrysler Pacifica, Mazda CX-9 (which we tentatively ordered,) Saturn Outlook, Volvo and other, obvious non-candidates like the Subaru, Ford and Hyundai cuv's our choice became very clear. 18 months ago we saw the Enclave concept at the auto show and my wife loved its shape immediately. This year at the show we saw the production version and extensively examined the Acadia and Outlook. Our initial reactions: It has that "X" factor in spades. It's extremely quiet and spacious. (Our knees, for example don't touch anything which really irritated us in the Mazda.) It has OnStar, a real plus. The whole shebang was explained in detail by our dealer, Lakeshore Buick in Shaker Heights. They also gave us a sharp price and included the Conquest rebate with no problem. (I particularly liked the un-advertised "value-added" maintainence extras they included.) In short, as of today, we are extremely satisfied in ways we haven't often experienced with other new car purchases we've made over the years.

You don't need to see photos of our Enclave. It's the ubiquitous Cocoa w/ cashmere interior! We did purposely order the 2nd row bench. IMHO, since it has the same comfort as the buckets, and includes a fold down armrest, and was a -$411 option, we wanted the possiblility of carrying another passenger.

So far, so good... :thumb:
