I was surprised that they went with a power sunshade over the back…I would have expected both to be powered. I wondered how durable the clip on the front will be in the long run. I am one of those rare people that gets a car with a moonroof but never actually use it (on my Nissan Murano the most I did was open the shade and that wasn’t too often…I’d honestly forget about it). In both this Enclave and that Nissan the only reason I had the moonroof is because the package just happened to include it. In the case of the Nissan I wanted Intelligent Cruise Control and it was lumped into the package that included the moonroof. In the Buick the salesman incorrectly swore this one had the same (well on Buick it’s Adaptive Cruise Control I think) because he swore it was standard on Premium and Avenir. Because for some odd reason Buick doesn’t have a clearly identifiable control to turn it on it wasn’t clear that I didn’t have it until I tried using it and realized it was not adjusting speed based on the car distance ahead that I chose (another oddity to me because I’m not quite sure why I would need a car icon to light up alerting me that I am getting closer to the car ahead if it does nothing else…when I should be able to see that if I‘m doing my job as a driver and paying attention). It wasn’t a big deal but I do miss the feature. As far as the Enclave goes…it’s been almost impossible to find one without a moonroof regardless of the trim.…at least during my whole search that has been the case. I think I located one somewhere in either Florida or Mississippi that didn’t have one but it was one of the early productions so its one of the ones missing some of the features it should have but isn‘t eligible for the retrofits (they got more money off to compensate but not enough imo if you wanted those features and was willing to trade savings to lose them).The sunshade is supposed to look like that. It did in our '18, it does in my dad in laws '20. I'm just happy it's powered now. The old design had a clip that was prone to breaking. It's the same clip that's up front. Wish that 1 was powered too.
Ours needs retrofitted for the front sensors and the 2nd row heated seats. It just missed the cut off where they had more rolling out with those features installed. I'm unaware of any other retrofits that are needed for other trims.
During my search I came across a few Avenir models that didn’t have the heated rear seats, the front and rear sensors, and the power 3rd row. I briefly considered an Avenir because the dealer I purchased from had one in the same color as the Premium I got but ultimately I tend to go with middle trims since I can usually get my “must haves” and be happy.
I will definitely stay on top of everything with corporate…although like I said, the only issue I have right now is the noise situation. Other than that I absolutely love it and am glad I finally made the move from Nissan.
