Just purchased my 2015 Chevy Trax! Had a wonderful experience there. Tom Casey and Jim Watson did a wonderful job telling me how to drive an AWD - SUV since the only thing I've ever owned was small compact cars. They are great guys and I enjoyed my time there and plan to visit again for all my service needs.

Loved this car and knew it was exactly what I wanted the very first time I saw it. My only regret is that I did not order the AWD and chrome wheels. I love it!!

Love my encore

I've had my Encore for exactly two years 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 carseat facing forward, the back of the car seat will not sit against the back of the car seats and that concerns me for anyone with small children. I have 8 grand kids but none are in a carseat any longer.

I'm a late Buick adopter!

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!

Several small issues

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.

great little suv for the price

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.

Just bought this used at 23k miles. I'm 6'2" and there's plenty of room for me, front or back. For a 4 cylinder, acceleration was okay except for a slight lag. Handling is nimble with good steering response. Visibility is a problem out the back, especially with back seat passengers so learn to use the camera and side mirrors. Plenty of controls for the driver seat position, even lumbar support, but the seat was feeling a little hard after only an hour of highway driving. The main screen is bright and clear with intuitive controls. Only the driver gets an arm rest. It's odd, but there are only three vent configurations: foot, dash, and windshield. The interior has a refined appearance with a leather wrapped steering wheel and soft-touch dash. An auxiliary jack and USB are easily accessible. Plenty of storage bins and cubbies. The back seat has no air vents, but it does have pull-down drink holders. First impression: a nimble, fun-to-drive SUV that is unexpectedly roomy.

Love this car!

I bought this car 2 months ago and we are both liking it more and more every day. I love a small car that's quiet and it has a high quality interior. Reviews about its lack of power are misleading. It has plenty of pep with the turbo and it actually gets better gas mileage than I thought it would. A joy to park in small spaces and I like the high seating position. For a small vehicle it feels quite roomy inside. It also handles well. We ar e empty nesters with 2 dogs and this is the perfect second vehicle for us.

Great Little Car

I purchased my Encore in September 2014 and I must say it is the best car I have ever owned. I am not one to like SUV's but needed something with AWD. This car sits up high like an SUV but drives like a small car. It does great in the rain and snow on curvy back roads. Gas mileage is great (average 26 mpg). As stated in many reviews, it is not a powerful car but it has the guts to get up on the highway at full speed. It has every comfort available and the safety features of a much more expensive vehicle. This is the best new car I have ever owned.

An excellent buy for an commuter/urban vehicle

My car came with zero flaws. Great build quality. I have probably bought 20 or so new cars over my lifetime and none came as flawless as this one. First oil change due now after about 5,000 miles. I have not been back to the dealer since I bought it in June.

literally a vehicle sent from heaven

I purchased my Encore in May, 2014. I wanted a reliable car that would get good gas mileage and satisfactory performance. What I did not pay attention to was safety features but that has changed! I was driving this past Monday prior Thanksgiving and was driving near 70-mph at 10-pm when I fell completely asleep at the wheel. I rifled off the highway here north of Cincinnati and drove head on into a guard rail. I woke up to incredible jerking and twisting due to the collision which ripped guard rail posts, one-after-another, throwing me in a roller coaster ride. The car air bags erupted and the engine fell beneath me. I kicked open the passenger door and walked without harm!

Do not buy this car!

I have Encore base for 7 months and it has about 6K miles now. It is a comfortable car, but all positives ends here. Performance is mediocre. Driving it is a nightmare: I experience automatic transmission issues at times. Gears are switching erratically and incorrectly, the car is shaking. Dealer is reluctant to do anything: they just cannot duplicate the problem. Build quality is horrible: I did have a problem with shock absorber, it took me 4 visits to dealer to fix it. Do not buy this car under any circumstances!

Dissatisfied with Encore, GM, and the Dealer!

We purchased our Encore brand new. After an initial "honeymoon period", we started having reliability issues. The car has now been repaired three times for suspension noise. It has gotten so bad that the Dealer & GM proposed a "Trade Assist" as they suggested we get rid of the car. Unfortunately the assistance wasn't much. We are very dissatisfied - we have spend endless time on the phone with GM and at the Dealer. I would highly recommend you consider another manufacturer!

2014 Buick Encore White perl. About $32,000 before tax for full fully loaded premium AWD 2014 incluing cargo net, organiser, cargo floor, floor mats etc. I have driven it from Seattle to Los Angeles for a week mostly west coast 1 and 101 hwy. Here is what I felt after driving over 1400 miles. 1. Very comfy riding experience, also thx to the noise reduction technology. Stylish exterior and cute design good for 20s 30s female driver. 2. Despite of small suv size, it is roomy inside for 4 ppl. Cargo space is little tight though. 3. No problem merging hwy; however, no confident following another suv up on the mountain hills. I felt little embarrassing.

Excellent car, pass on the navigation

We have had our encore for a bit over a month. We are pleased with everything except the navigation. Worst GPS routing I have ever used. On a five hour trip -- using side by side with our portable TomTom the buick system routed us 30 miles farther and 1 hour longer. We do not trust the navigation at all. It can not find addresses our TomTom has and it routinely routes a longer distance or time. 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.

I am an active older woman, and my husband and I wanted to buy a vehicle with some luxury touches, a higher seating position and a quiet interior. I kept looking at the Encore and being put off by reviews saying that the engine is too small, it’s slow etc. But when I actually test drove an Encore Leather, I was hooked. No problems merging on to the highway or driving on hills. The turbocharged engine managed just fine. Have driven it for 3 mths mostly in town with a few trips on the highway, and one in Rocky Mountain Nat. Pk. There, the car purred quietly up and down the snowy and sometimes slippery mountain roads and I could easily control the downhill speed in the Manual range.
