2013 Buick Encore SUV Leather 4dr SUV AWD (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
What I like best about my petite Encore? ( leased) 1a. the smooth, very comfortable and quiet ride, just high enough up to give (petite) me a good view of the road; size of vehicle; 1b. The heated steering wheel, individually heated front seats and auto start; 2. Leather interior in saddle is eye catching and of very good quality- always looks great; 3. Cargo space is convenient for shopping bags/ travel cases, and is larger than it appears to be from the outside; 4. Great running car - no mechanical or technical problems during 3 years of leasing; very reliable and love the way it maneuvers through traffic and in-out of parking spaces.

Car is beautiful, well appointed, easy to drive. The technology is a bit hard to get used to. (too many buttons and gadgets to learn) Navigation system not user friendly. No touch screen. The 2013 Premium does not come with blind spot monitoring as seen on many sites. It has a small mirror located on the mirror that is the blind spot monitoring. Lane detection works very well.

After 27,000 miles was loving this car then bam a maintenance nightmare.
3 recalls (seat belt issues & parking brake cable) a oil pan leak & a vibration/buzz that turned into an exhaust system failure that required an all new system. While they were fixing these problems they found a coolant leak & are now replacing the water pump.
Disappointing as I was crazy about this ride...I'm asking for an extended warranty as this is looking like a lemon?
