2014 Buick Encore Premium 4dr SUV (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


We are pleased with everything except the navigation.
Worst GPS routing I have ever used. Hard to use as it is voice only and some names not recognized, also GM wants $140 to update map every year. Our TOM TOM comes with free lifetime map updates for less than one GM update -- and it is easier to use.
The vehicle is exce;;ent for what we do, lots of long distance driving, a bit small on the inside but perfect for two.

We will not use it for anything other than finding an address in town -- if it even can find the address.
Do not waste your money on the navigation system.
Spend $100 on a portable instead of $800 for the car system.
