noticeable [brake] fade after multiple stops -- the Flex and CX-9 perform better

There's chrome trim everywhere, though, which means blinding reflections when the sun's at certain angles.

The 2010 Buick Enclave has all the makings of a very safe vehicle, with standard front-seat side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags, and electronic stability control. OnStar's Vehicle Diagnostics even monitor the stability control system.

While there's a lack of full up-to-date crash-test results for the Enclave, it's earned some impressive results that would indicate excellent overall protection. Although the Enclave hasn't yet been tested in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) roof strength test, it's earned top 'good' scores from the IIHS in frontal and side protection. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) scored the 2010 Buick Enclave at five stars for front and side impact protection, while giving the big crossover four stars for rollover resistance. The federal agency has recalibrated its tests this year, and the 2011 Enclave hasn't yet been rated.

Conclusion

Families can rest assured; the 2011 Buick Enclave is one of the safest choices in this class, with high crash-test scores and an arsenal of standard safety equipment.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
