Buick Enclave 2018 User Manual
General Motors debuted the Buick Enclave, a mid-size luxury crossover SUV, under the Buick brand. The Enclave came out in 2007 as a model for 2008. Since then, it has become one of Buick’s most popular cars. After a full redesign, the 2018 Buick Enclave was the second generation of the car. It had a more modern and high-end look, better speed, and a lot of new safety and technology features. The 2018 Enclave had a sleek and stylish look on the outside, with curved lines and a big front grille. It had a longer wheelbase than its predecessor, which gave it more room inside. The Enclave had three rows of seats, so it could easily fit up to seven people. The 2018 Enclave had a 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood that made 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. It came with a nine-speed automatic transmission that made power delivery smooth and easy. The Enclave could be bought with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Inside the Enclave, the cabin had a high-class and elegant feel. A premium drive experience was made possible by high-quality materials, soft-touch surfaces, and new features. The chairs in the second row could slide and tilt forward, making the third row easy to get to. The Enclave also had a lot of space for cargo, which made it a good choice for families.

Power Seat Adjustment
You can lose control of the vehicle if you try to adjust the driver’s seat while the vehicle is moving.
Adjust the driver seat only when the vehicle is not moving.
To adjust the seat:
- Move the seat forward or rearward by sliding the control forward or rearward.

Sitting in a reclined position when the vehicle is in motion can be dangerous. Even when buckled up, the seat belts cannot do their job.
The shoulder belt will not be against your body. Instead, it will be in front of you. In a crash, you could go into it, receiving neck or other injuries.
The lap belt could go up over your abdomen. The belt forces would be there, not at your pelvic bones. This could cause serious internal injuries.
For proper protection when the vehicle is in motion, have the seatback upright. Then sit well back in the seat and wear the seat belt properly.
- Do not have a seatback reclined if the vehicle is moving
- Tilt the top of the control rearward to recline.
