2020 Buick Enclave, offered as a midsize luxury SUV by the famed General Motors company is gentle on the ride as well as your wallet. Not quite as luxurious as a Q7, but the Enclave comes with enough standard features that can put you in a placebo that you are actually riding an Audi. It provides a smooth and very silent ride suitable for long trips. Although it doesn’t enough plush interiors or the sporty feel offered by its rivals, it sticks to the SUV segment and looks forward to fulfilling the quest of people hunting for an SUV that is gentle, reliable and particularly one that doesn’t burn a hole in their pocket.

 JD Power Report

JD Power Report is ‘the de-facto standard’ when it comes to determining the reliability of a car. The market research agency collects feedback from verified car owners and comprehends the survey responses to determine scores on four fronts- Quality & Reliability, Driving Performance, Resale and Dealership Experience. Then, individual scores are given weightage based on their significance and an overall average rating 0-100 is derived.

2020 Buick Enclave SUV three quarter view

JD Power has given 2020 Buick Enclave an overall rating of 85 out 100 based on the previous year’s review data. This score is considered “Above Average” as deduced from the rating classifications. Individual scores are listed below:

Quality & Reliability - 85 /100

Driving & Performance - 82 /100

Resale - 76 /100

Dealership Experience - 92 /100

On the further breakdown of the scores, one can see that Buick offers a remarkable after-sales service offering customers peace of mind. Scoring 80 plus on three fronts, the SUV only took a dive when it comes to resale value. Resale value is particularly important when you frequently switch cars. Otherwise, Buick Enclave is a wise and reliable choice to go for.

Recalls

There has been only one recall issued to the 2020 Buick Enclave by the GM where the right-hand frame rail in the engine component is likely to have a crack. This may reduce crash performance and thus the company was quick to issue a recall. The affected part will be replaced at dealerships free of charge. This shows how the company prioritizes the safety of its customers.

However, there have been numerous complaints of faulty transmission on the 2019 model and also there are complaints on multiple fronts which may be one-off or a minor issue that is caused by negligent handling of the vehicle. But still, no communication regarding solutions for these issues has been received from the company end.

 Warranty

The warranty coverage of the 2020 Buick Enclave SUV is as follows:

  • Bumper to Bumper Limited Warranty:3 years /36,000 miles
  • Powertrain Limited Warranty:5 years /60,000 miles
  • Drivetrain Limited Warranty: 5 years /60,000 miles
  • Corrosion (Rust-through) Warranty: 3 years /36,000 miles
  • Corrosion (Perforation) Warranty:6 years /100,000 miles
  • Roadside Assistance Program:5 years /60,000 miles

In addition to the above warranty coverage, Buick also offers one complimentary scheduled maintenance visit that includes an oil and filter change within the first year of vehicle delivery.

Good for everyday regular driving but breaks down with ease.

I? still getting an impressive figure of 28mpg which really sounds good. Effortless maneuver around in the city or safer driving dynamics at higher interstate speeds.
