Pros: "Roomy, easy to get in and out of, comfortable"

"We've had our Buick for 12 years and been very happy, particularly with its ease of ingress/egress and cargo capacity. Only two major maintenance headaches (torque tube and alternator); otherwise very reliable, When we bought a new car last year, we chose to trade in out 2008 Chevy rather than this one. Hope it runs forever!"
"Bought with 15000 miles, have had for 10 years, electronics are a joke ( instrumentation ) the motor has been very reliable no problems, and the body has held up looks good for a car with 134000 miles but that is where it ends.I have had to replace the rear end ( all wheel drive )and last year i had to have the transmission rebuilt. Maybe I am wrong here but a car that has been well maintained such as this one should not have major components failing on it with that milage, I will not buy another Buick. I will on the other hand buy another Honda almost 150000 miles and not a problem!!!"
Cons: "MPG, when you hit a bump the vehicle shifts"

"Ive owned this car for 1 year so far. Its has 165,xxx miles on it. And really the only problem is the trasnmission but I really think that its just my car and how the previous owners treated it. I am the 2nd owner on my car. The previous owners were a older couple."
"I have literally had no issues with this vehicle and I am the only private owner. I have previously had Ford, Chev over many years and have been so impressed with this Buick that my next purchase will probably be another Buick SUV. My Explorer was just tooo big for me and my lifestyle. This size is perfect."
"Very few repairs, the gas gauge does not work and I have been told they could fix it but not guarantee it, problem with the model year. The other only on-going problem is the doors freeze shut on a regular basis. Runs great, comfortable for long drives, works for my 6'4 husband as well as myself 5'2. This feature is next to impossible to find. I have no idea what I will replace it with when the time comes."
