"I Bought this vehicle new in February of 2004. It's the only vehicle I've had in 30+ years of driving that I didn't want to get rid of. This car has never let me down and is extremely dependable. It currently has over 148,000 miles is still going strong. If Buick made this model today I'd buy a new one but because they took this great vehicle off the market in 2007 and replaced it with a much more cost prohibitive but equally as nice car, the Enclave, I think I'll keep mine."

Pros: "Long lasting, drives like a car"

Cons: "Many issues with tires and underbody"

"Have had to do costly repairs on chassis which I found out is common on these vehicles. If you can get past this and the very poor fuel economy, it's actually a pretty comfortable and easy to maintain vehicle. My vehicle has seen some very harsh winters and is still alive and well. Rust started in 2010 on the hood but is very slow to spread. Because of the age of the vehicle I have put very little work in it and only do what is absolutely necessary and regular oil changes. At 145,000 miles the vehicle still drives very well. The already not so great fuel economy has taken a slight dip, but the vehicle itself is still mechanically sound."

"Excellent ride,very good on wet roads. Only complaint I have is the placement of the horn. It's location on the steering wheel isn't easy to use. Requires strong thumb. Excellent side mirrors and back up sensors."

"Wheel hubs have been replaced twice, engine head gaskets, twice, fuel gage, rear drive axle, alternator,once and now the body computer is out , making the AWD to be disabled, the TPMS reads malfunction and finally the fuel gage is reading "E" all the time again. Car still drives and rides nice but I'm just waiting for the next malady to occur."

"I am very pleased with this vehicle. It's comfortable, reliable. Can easily seat 5-6 people for a weekend getaway. Has cruise control AWD, great in snow. I guess the gas mileage could be a drawback for really conservative people, Winter 20 to 22 mpg. Summer,spring and autumn 23 to 24 mpg."

"I bought this suv new and use it to tow a 12x6 cargo trailer under 3500 pounds. It gets 24-27 mpg on highway and gets betweent 15-18 mpg while towing. Only warrenty work was a leaking tail light bezel and a loose drivers window switch panel. Both replaced/repaired under warrenty. It has been on four long trips of over 2000 miles and was a pleasure to drive. Quite ride and good handling for an suv. Probably never sell it. It has never overheated due to pulling trailer even during the summer in the mountians of south eastern US. I would buy it all over again. Best suv out there in its class!"
