2015 Buick Enclave
2013 Buick Regal GS
We traded the truck in for a 2015 Buick Enclave (yeah, old age is setting in and I drive a fleet of Buicks). This is the wife's DD and I take over the Regal full time. The sad thing is right now I am driving the POS Cutlass Supreme while teaching the daughter to drive.

Now, there will be a guaranteed track day with the Regal and mods are already in my mind.

I dig it, I've always liked the Enclave and the facelifted ones are just gorgeous!!! It's even in the color combo I'd like mine...

What's up with the car seat? Something you need to tell us? :poke:

Didn't you have a camp trailer you were pulling with the Sierra? Did you get rid of that too, or is one of the mods to the Regal a trailer hitch? :twisted:

Car seat is for grandkids. We never got to getting a travel trailer and we wanted a house more. Maybe later we will get something, but the Enclave is now the travelling wagon.

Hopefully heading your way soon. Wife is going back to night shift and it will allow us to have a more aligned schedule and more days off in a row and together. Means less vacation time burnt.

Sweet! Those Enclaves are nice rides. Trying to get my mom into one versus an Escalade and/or SRX.

I can't wait for you to get modding on the GS though.

Nice Matt!!! Didn't see this before the Aeroforce post. I had one for a day, and besides the awful champagne & brown, it was a nice ride. Could've used some more power, but it drove well, and will be great on trips and with the grand-kids.

I cant complain, the enclave is a nice ride, best looking out of the large crossovers, Its just not for me... most crossovers look bloated, hard to maneuver, and fragile looking, although this beast appears more trim and agile for its size. I would be curious to know what drive train it has. Quality is an over abundance with Buick right now ( I make the roof racks at work)

Why is your daughter driving the new car? When I was younger the only way I got to drive my parents cars was if I was with them, or needed the space our hauling ability of the van... I could see if the cutlass is acting up and you dont want to your daughter stranded, but truth be told, learning how to drive is something that should be done in the old car (which looks in great shape from what I can see)... though I could be looking at this wrong. Are you picking up your daughter in the old csr so she can practice with you, that seems to make more sense

The wife drives the Enclave, the Regal is mine, I am teaching the daughter to drive in the 96 Cutlass. It is her car, but we carpool to work while she is learning. Once she gets her license, I will drive the Regal full time and not have to get to work early everyday.

I thought I gave my official approval. After careful review of this thread, it appears I did not. Therefore I am now stating my position.

I approve.

Took the girls out for this today and got it dirty:

Stop at the car wash on the way home for a rinse.

While on the gravel logging road, I figured I would try out the AWD. It works pretty good, got maybe a foot of spin from one wheel and it moved as well as a 4000# SUV can.

We love it and it has such a nice ride. It will definitely be a nice ride for the long trips. Buick did a great job.

Were the girls shooting at a target you had set up in the back of the Enclave?

:poke:

And, now that you've proven the AWD works, when you come down this way we can take it to Moab and do Poison Spider Mesa or the Moab Rim Trail. Give that dude a workout. :lol:
