Hi, 2014 Buick Enclave Leather. Currently have about 78,000 miles (124,000 km) - nobody from the USA ever converts for the Canadians! Hopefully I'll start a trend! We bought it used about two years ago with 45,000 miles on it (72,000 km). 33,000 miles (53,000 km) of relatively trouble free motoring at this point. We've done the oil changes, coolant, air filter, battery, tires and a half shaft (due to a torn boot). The half shaft didn't seem to last as long as I would think it should. Other than that, no problems. Hopefully I got a good one! I saw one member on here whose Enclave had problem after problem after he hit 90k. Yikes! I see people put a lot of miles on these motors though before they blow up, so that's something at least! Hoping to make it another 6 years and make it up to around 150,000 miles (240,000 km). My wife's car and she LOVES it!

Replaced a motor mount

My wife wanted a Enclave and I really like them too so it worked out great.
Tues morning we leave for vacation. Just me and her and a big beautiful luxurious Buick Enclave. Heading 3 hrs and 10 minutes northwest of Dearborn Mi. Im 43 and haven't had more than a weekend vacation in 24 yrs. Super excited. Gotta wash this sexy girl before we head to Muskegon Mi. Peace from Dearborn M
