Blast from the past

Car is a 2+2, no rear knee room. Acceleration from dead stop ok, but is quite good from 25mph and up, great on freeways and interstates. Steering quick, tight turn radius. Ride is firm but not harsh, cornering stability good. Noise level surprisingly good. Rear visibility with top up is marginal with passenger headrests up, but is adequate otherwise. Fold down rear seats great. Gas mpg on new engine 27.5at prolonged 75-85 mph, 22mpg suburban travel. However, interior controls need redesign. NAV system complex, redundant, voice recognition a joke, back up/NAV screen too small, very difficult to identify features function button while underway. Took it in for first for visit at 3000 miles...unable to get tires to balance, to be replaced, top has two small tears, to be replaced, after 32 days of ownership. Promptly after delivery took 2k mile trip, seating quite comfortable, we each have lumbar problems. So far am satisfied with vehicle. Update at 4k mi, 8 mo ownership. Great dealer service, got new tires and top very promptly. Mph still very good in all city driving. Still very satisfied with purchase, prior comments still releva nt. Update 9000 miles, 5k on hiway, 29mph, 24 city. Visability top up margi al. Clearly a 2+2 interior. Top down wind management great for front seat great, horrible for rear passengers. All other prior comments still relevant.

I must say this is the most advance car that I have own, A Lot of bells and whistles for me to learn, but once the top comes off all that goes away!!! A Lot of folks are complaining about the engine and the lack of power, well I say it is a rag top it is about the driving experience not how fast you can go!!!!! If you want speed then you have to pay more and I do mean MORE!!!!! I have a 2016 Model and I am just in heaven this is not my first rag top I have grown up with MG, Triumph, and others. Yes it would be nice to have an engine that would use regular fuel instead of Premium but one makes the choice and goes from there. If you are looking for speed and flash well keep looking and I hope you get 6 correct numbers as you are going to need it. But if you are looking for a great ride to enjoy then give Cascada a try you might just enjoy it!!! 1/20/2019 Update I now have 48000 miles on this car and yes I still love it!!!! All seems to be working well and should continue to as long as one does the proper maintenance. 7/22/2019 Update....Well I am not changing my review at all this is one great car!!!! I am passing 60000 miles and yes you could say that is alot for this age of a car but I reply I did not buy this car to have it sit in a garage!! Yes it is my daily driver and when the weekend comes going out day tripping is a blast. SO with this said Get out and Enjoy!!!! Top up or down.... Most Down here!!!!!!!

This is really a car for me. I've always had a family oriented car-sedan, coupe, wagon, when I carted my children and grandchildren around. Personally, I love it, not a lot of space for a crowd, which I like!!! I think it handles great, and I wanted something sporty, easy on the eye and just plain fun in my "older age".

Like legroom, inexpensive convertible

I'm 6'2" and have always wanted a convertible that will fit me without breaking the bank. Super sporty looking. Very few on the road. Surprisingly quiet cab. Engine has nice punch, but no one will ever accuse it of being a fine motor machine. The roof converts in about 60 seconds and the mechanics of the process are very smooth. Go ahead and spend $60-$90K for a sportier machine, I'll enjoy my ride for half the cost.

Not your grandmother's Buick

Recently bought a used 2017 Cascada with only 2000 miles on it. Have been very pleasantly surprised by the drivability of this car. Handling is tight and drives similar to a sports car, though Buick tuned the suspension to be softer and more forgiving than your typical sports car. Seats are a bit firm for my taste, but I drove it for 2.5 hours and they actually got more comfortable, not less comfortable, as the drive progressed. As has been noted elsewhere, the engine is a bit slow from a dead stop, but is very quick once you get above 40 mph. Here are my pro's: 1. High quality at a very reasonable price. 2. Extremely quiet for a convertible. 3. Excellent handling 4. Big trunk for a convertible. 5. Decent back seat for a convertible. 6. Fully automated top goes up / down quietly and smoothly 7. Very good gas mileage - I'm getting 27.2 mpg using regular gas in mixed driving. 8. Its a Buick so you know it's reliable. Here are my cons: 1. Rear visibility is poor with the top up. Back window is much too small. 2. A bit sluggish from a dead stop. 3. Controls are very confusing and a bit dated. 4. No Blind Spot Detection System, which is a huge miss considering how poor the rear visibility is (see con #1 above). Dollar for dollar, this is as good as it gets in the world of convertibles!
