Buick Used cars- Buick Enclave Consider One of the Best Midsize Sport Utility Vehicles Anywhere

Buick used cars like the Buick Enclave is considered one of the best midsize SUV’s on the used market today. The Enclave has been compared with some of the best luxury SUV’s out there because of how comfortable and quite the ride is.  The Enclave can seat comfortably 8 people and has been suggested by others test driving it that it drives more like a car than a SUV.

Buick Enclave used cars come in three different packages. The most basic package is the CX, you can upgrade that to the CXL and if you want their best package then the CXL2 is their best one.

Buick used cars have always had a great safety record but the Enclave is absolutely amazing. It has earned a five star crash test rating for front and side impacts; it also got a four start rating for protection against any type of rollover that could occur. Some of the features that the Buick Enclave has to offer are anti lock brakes on all four wheels, OnStar, traction control and driver and passenger air bags. Also there is an option for navigation for rear-view camera.

The interior for the Enclave is very spacious; it provides space and room for eight people to sit comfortably. The second row can come in two or three seats; the two seat option comes in captain chairs making it even more comfortable. The two seats in front come with heating and if you upgrade to the CXL2, you also get cooling. The Enclave is also equipped with three different climate zones and adjustable steering.

These are just a few things to consider when looking at used cars in the midsize sport utility vehicle market. The Buick Enclave is one of the best in its field and is known to be very reliable on the road.

Buick Used Cars- A Quick Look At The Rendezvous

Buick used cars like the Rendezvous was a new entry into the SUV crossover market back in 2002. To be honest with you, this vehicle looks like every other SUV crossover from GMs other brands. This is why General Motors really screwed up and got itself into so much financial trouble. It was basically developing the same vehicles, in the same market segment, with the same look and design, but with a different brand stamp on the hood of the vehicle. Im mean really, is there any differences when you look at the Pontiac Aztek compared to the Buick Rendezvous. So for all intensive purposes, I will not write about the Aztek because it shares a lot of the same features and platforms as the Rendezvous does-lol.

Buick Rendezvous used cars:

Rendezvous’ base model provides seating for five people; it also has an option to fit as many as seven people, which comes standard with its top model, but would be an extra in its base model. It also has an option for captains chairs as well. I found the interior to be very blah and its exterior looks as if it was a smaller version of a station wagon but beefed up on steroids; it has a real weird look to it.

The Buick Rendezvous has several different engines in its various model types. The base model had a V6, 3.4-litre engine, with 185 horsepower. Later models for its best version got an upgrade to a V6, 3.6-litre, 245 horsepower engine. All base model Rendezvous came with two-wheel drive, its top model came standard with an allwheel drive transmission.

I only found one statistic on the Rendezvous fuel economy. It basically gives and average for all models in which it ranges from 12.3-Litres to 13.7-litres, per 100km, for city driving and 7.8-litres to 9.3-litres, per 100km, for highway driving.

Lets take a look at some of the pros and cons when looking to buy a Buick Rendezvous as used vehicle.

1- There are issues with the transmission
2- There are problems with the air condition leaking.
3- There are problems with the braking sensors
4- It received a 3 star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety organization for a crash test done to it, for passenger and driver protection.

This is a vehicle I recommend staying away from; there are just too many issues with it.

Detroit MI Buick LaCrosse Receives High Marks in Car and Drivers ?Car Designers Graded’

Detroit MI Buick LaCrosse is General Motors’ newly-graded, A student. In the newest issue of Car and Driver, Phil Patton, a teacher at the School of Visual Arts in New York and automobile-design writer for the New York Times, graded all of the major car designers ranging from American automakers like General Motors, Ford and Chrysler to European automakers such as Volkswagen, BMW, and Jaguar.

Top-students such as the Ferrari and Jaguar, both with A’s, were followed closely by Kia and Detroit MI automaker General Motors with their cars, including GM’s stylish Buick LaCrosse, being graded at an A-.

The designer for Buick, Ed Welburn, is said to be reviving the Buick with the LaCrosse concept. Rated above BMW, Audi and Ford—all graded with B’s—General Motors should be proud of Welburn for putting them on the map of high-class design.

It should be mentioned that carmakers who may have been considered higher on the design-pole were not called out as such this time around. Subaru’s WRX along with Porsche and its new Panamera were ranked at a B-. Porsche got this grade for the Panamera’s changed and stretched figure. It is hard to modify any part of a Porsche with such a classic and unchanging history of design.

Average students who received passing marks were Honda/Acura with a C- and Mitsubishi’s little “bean on wheels”, the i-MiEV, who took a C.

The lowest-graded kid in class this issue was Toyota/Lexus with a D+. This Japanese company’s new design campaign “Vibrant Clarity” for Toyota and “L-Finesse” for Lexus came up short with bland curves and overall dull appearance, according to Phil Patton.

This month’s report card may have been disappointing for some, but reward-worthy for others like the Buick LaCrosse who can now show off its new gold star to its proud parents in Detroit MI. Congratulations to all high-graded students, and to those who graded less than expected, maybe it’s time for a study group.

Here at Michigan Auto Times we’re not surprised the LaCrosse received high marks in design because we named it our Top Pick for Family Sedan.
