Safety

Like many of the homes created on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," the Buick Enclave has all the important features. It scored a Good, the highest score, in frontal-offset, side-impact and rear crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It also nabbed a 2009 Top Safety Pick award from IIHS. To earn this honor, a car must score Good in its crash tests and have electronic stability control.

The Enclave's safety features also include antilock brakes; traction control; front and side-impact airbags; side curtain airbags for the first, second and third rows; a Latch system; and a year's subscription to OnStar with Turn-by-Turn Navigation. Add the optional AWD to this list, and you'll be all set, even if you live in Michigan!
