Review

I've had my Encore for exactly one year and I have been extremely impressed by it. I've had several small cars that were so noisy when driving, I tried not to go on long trips in them. First day I had my Encore I had to make an emergency trip in pouring down rain with several tornado sightings for 200 miles. Driving that far is hard for me as I have spinal issues, but I wasn't hurting when I got to my destination. My Contessa has enough power to go up hill with the air conditioning on, handles well in the rain, and is getting a consistent 28.4 mpg. The air conditioning works well in the Texas heat, Thank The Lord! The only complaints I have is, I was hit by another car going 10 mph and had $1400. in damage to the drivers door. The body repair shop told me that the parts are very expensive. The back seat was not made for car seats either, it handles a booster seat well but for a full car seat facing forward, the back of the car seat will not sit against the back of the car seat and that concerns me for anyone with small children. I have 8 grand kids but none are in a car seat any longer.

Review

I bought my certified pre-owned Encore with 6,000 miles on it 2 months ago. I commute 80 miles to work each day and this vehicle is so comfortable and handles like a charm! I constantly get compliments on my Encore and how fancy it looks.

The only cons that I have about it are, as mentioned in other reviews, it doesn't have the pep you'd expect with turbo; I find that braking isn't as good as I thought it should be; and rear view visibility is impaired by the back seat headrests.

I love SUVs and have previously owned several Subaru SUVs and the Buick is a class above them in that it handles better, is sooo comfortable for my long commute, and looks great!

Review

I have had this car for 6 months, and have found many issues.

1) The entertainment system has locked up twice. The screen will not change, and I cannot control anything (change channels, volume, etc).
2) The tire pressure monitoring system was reversed. The pressure of the front right tire was actually the pressure of the rear right tire and vice versa. Same thing on the left side.
3) When I used Bluetooth voice command to call a number of someone not already in my phone, it reversed the 2nd and 3rd digits. (i.e. call "928-xxx-xxxx" and it would call "982-xxx-xxxx".
4) The blind spot alerts have stopped working on multiple occasions. I read this sometimes happens with snow or rain, but it was not inclement weather when this happened to me.
5) The AC fan started making a squeaking sound. I was able to get this replaced prior to it going out of warranty.

Review

My wife didn't want a car or a large suv. The size is perfect. She's had the Encore for one year and she loves it. 100% happy.
