This car is basically great for a baby boomer like me that wants a comfortable, safe convertible cruiser, but it needs a few additions after driving it. Even if they are stand alone options this needs blind spot/cross traffic monitoring, and adding automatic emergency braking to its forward collision warning. I would gladly pay 2 to 3 thousand greenbacks more for these options. They already have part of this on the Verano. I will be replacing my Mustang convertible with another one, loaded with all the tech (including adaptive cruise control) available now. If more is added in the next two or three years to the Mustang or even the Cascada (I don't need a fast sports car) I will trade. Smart folks my age want the driver assist tech, because as Clint Eastwood put it so well, "A man's got to know his limitations." A tech assist comfortable cruiser is in order. Bring back the Toyota Camry Solara Convertible? That puppy has a REAL back seat.

Beauty of a car for that middleclass person

At least a beauty of a car for a middle-class hardworking person that wants a comfortable and can't afford a Mercedes or other high end vehicle. I am in love with my car. The look, the ride, the comfort, the pick up, everything. The only thing is being it in the 2016 and it being almost winter I was hoping I would get a better price but afraid not. I am still paying over 450 a month on a lease after putting over 3000 down for 36 months and I think that crazy, but it's what I wanted to drive so I did it. I hope to maybe buy it out, we'll see. Anyhow. compared to the BMW bug it was roomier, a more luxury car and BMW payments would have been the same, so I went with the Buick and got the car I really wanted and the Cascada is a real gem.

Lacking features.

Does not have blind spot monitoring sensors - a must when driving with top up. Where is the Home Link system for opening garage doors? Navigation screen is tiny and very hard to read. My Garmin is better. Gas mileage sucks. But it is a fun car.

In Pittsburgh the convertible market is not a booming market, so the selection of exterior, interior colors and wheel types were very limited. I ordered our Buick Cascada in the beginning of March, and received it at the end of May (three months delivery time). I enjoy driving the car more and more each day. It is quite and the ride is smooth on good roads, a bit bumpy on uneven roads (sport suspension). Our roads are hilly and windy here in Pittsburgh, but the Cascada handles the road exceptionally well. Seat and steering wheel adjustments are very accommodating. Initially I was concerned about the rear view visibility and the enclosed feeling with the roof up, but have no problems. The curvature of the two side mirrors is such that half of the lane behind me is visible in each of the side mirrors. Although the rear window is small, and is at an angle that reduce the visibility even more, between the rearwiew mirror and the two side mirrors visibility is pretty good. I have always had cars with sun roofs or panoramic roofs, so I was not sure how a solid black roof over my head will feel. I guess because of the huge wind shield and all the surrounding glass, there is absolutely no enclosed feeling. The trunk is small with the roof down, but that was expected with a convertible. It is a good size with the roof up except for the trunk opening. I am not a golfer, but I do not think that a golf bag would fit through the opening; of course there is always the back seat. In other reviews there have been a lot of comments about outdated dash, and too many buttons. True, there are a lot of buttons, but most of them are duplicates of the touch screen buttons. Just have to get used to when to use which button, touch screen or dash. I particularly like the "Destination" button on the dash, it eliminates going through several menu selections for selecting destination. The other feature that I like is that you can have the navigation displayed on the small screen between the speedometer and the tachometer, leaving the main display for other things, radio, CD music track and the like. It is cleverly designed, in addition to the voice instructions the direction of the next turn is displayed as an arrow and there is a progress bar that gets smaller as you approach the turn, very good. There are numerous technological features on the Cascada that you have to pay extra for with other cars. Blind spot monitoring is not included, but there is parking assist, lane departure warning, collision prevention warning, back up camara, road following headlights, cornering lights and several other safety and convenience features. Some reviewers had issues with the collision prevention, parking assist warning and low resolution back up camera. Both of the assists worked as intended for me; I just have to remember to turn off the parking assist before going through a car wash. As for the low resolution back up camera, let's be realistic, if it shows and alerts the driver that there is an object behind the car that could possibly be hit it did it's job, hi-res is great watching movies, but a pavement?? I have had several convertibles, and they all leaked going through car washes. Now granted, cars are better built nowadays, and car washes came along way in improving how they clean a car, but my the Buick Cascada does not leak. In my opinion it is a very attractive car with the top up or with the top down. Acceleration is exceptionally good considering the weight of the car and the engine size, yes there is room for improvement, but remember you get a lot for what you spend. So far I am very pleased with my Buick Cascada. If my review is still up on the website by the time we get snow here in Pittsburgh, I will update the review on how the Cascada handles winter driving on hilly windy roads and on cold temperatures features, heater, defogger, heated steering wheel and the like.

Love it!

I owned 4 Chrysler Sebrings. Last one was a hard top. This one is more elegant and quieter than the hard top.

Great car once it meets potential

Went to learn about cascada and test drive at Buick near me. Showroom car looked beautiful in and out. I wanted to see the trunk but it couldnn't be opened by anyone in the dealership. Trunk has no keyhole (does not use a key to open) or open lever or switch inside the car, the only way to open is to press a plate on trunk hood. Problem, is that the battery was dead and that wouldn't work! Disappointed the driver seat has no memory! More consideration for back seat passenger as seat stops if knees are hit. Problem is that I don't ever have passengers in the back seat. Fake alarm system above front windshield. Was told 2017 will bring an alarm sensor for when the top is down. Liked that however Started think I should wait for next model. Hands free microphone worked ok with top down. Radio speaker quality is very poor. Top went up and down amazingly. Not having to use latches to lock the top is a great feature. Premium accessories include a windbreaker that has to be manually attached each time to avoid draft on driver/ front passenger bak and same for back seat. Didn't like the sound of that. I didn't test it though. Really enjoyed the ride. Acceleration is "underwhelming" in that the downshift is slow even though it did pick up speed better than expected. Overall, I really want this car! This could very well be my next car and first convertible. But I will wait for next year's model with improvements I hope will make me want to drive right out of the show room as soon as possible.

To date, the 2016 Cascada with 5148 miles, has been in the dealership service lane 5 times, all for the same reason. The convertible top is faulty. I initially took the car in due to a very odd knocking and popping sound coming from the rear of the vehicle. My first dealership said it was road noise and I had to deal with it. This was literally metal on metal banging... After I insisted the dealer attempt to diagnose the noise concern, a technician somehow broke the interior panel but didnt tell me, nor replace the actual part. I then received a message once again stating the knocking was just road noise and body-flex and couldnt be fixed. After contacting Buick, I was connected to another dealership which took the time to review the knocking and found the broken panel, and also a screw that wasnt seated properly. Drove home in complete quiet. Three days later... The knocking was back and this time I had a leak on the opposite side of the car. Back to the dealer... They adjusted the top and replaced the seal as the dealer stated the seal had managed to fold incorrectly and formed to that shape and had to be replaced. Further adjustments to the top and the knocking was gone again. A week later... The banging and knocking is back. The interior panel that was replaced has again disconnected and is flapping around constantly. Adjusted, reseated, no more knocking. A week later... banging is back again. Returned to the dealer and had a technician drive the car. After a day in the shop the technician decided to replace a guide pin for the top cover. Noise gone again. 3 days later... Knocking and clacking is back, I have a leak, and the chrome trim was gouged by the service team during the last service. Being returned to the dealer. At this point, the 2016 Buick Cascada has become the biggest let down / regret of my car purchasing life. Though the service team has been polite and helpful, I didnt buy the vehicle for it to be in service more than I am able to drive it. Definitely regret the whole purchase at this point.

Bought this car for my wife (she loves it), and to be fair we have not had it but for a few weeks. I was looking for the great American convertible, something like a 1960s Buick LeSabre or Pontiac Catalina, but alas the big, roomy American verts are long gone. I was going to get a 2 series BMW (tiny back seat) or a CPO E350 (same price, 4 years old) convertible, but I went to see this car, too. Glad I did. This car has a comfortable, adult-sized back seat, big trunk for a vert, drives well, has wonderful front seats, and looks great (blue with the cream interior). It feels solid. Despite some of the pundits' reviews, the car feels plenty quick if not sports car quick (this car is not a sports car but a cruiser, which is what I wanted). The top works like a dream and the car is very quiet with the top up. Bose stereo is solid. The few negatives are no memory driver's seat; the low profile 20 inch tires can be jarring on rough pavement; rearward view with the top up is poor; and it is not really an American car, despite the nameplate. Some others have complained about the gadgets in the car like nav and lane change assist, but I have an I-phone for nav (although the Buick's nav works okay) and I can drive without some electronic nanny steering my car. As far as they go, these gadgets work okay, but I do not need them or want them on this or any other car. If you want a relatively affordable convertible that looks great and makes you smile, this could be your car.

Our new Deep Sky Blue Cascada replaces our faithful old Chrysler Sebring JXI. My wife loves convertibles and this car is a nice one. So far she has logged just a few hundred miles but they have been surprisingly enjoyable. The turbo 4 has better then expected performance and the handling is crisp. Not a floaty ride like Buick's of yore. Much has been made of all of the buttons on the dash, but most are only used occassionally and you quickly get used to the layout. The seats are comfortable and the convertible top, and it's mechanism, are awesome. So far we haven't found much not to like about this car. Styling is extremely attractive from every angle and the car gets a lot of compliments. At $37K, the price seems reasonable for what you get. Our old Sebring listed at $27k when new back in 2000, and it is no where near as well equipped. The car has some nice Euorpean touches, like the redundant set of tail lights when the trunk is open and the side signal lights on the front fenders. As for fuel economy, we recently averaged 28.6 mpg on a day trip here the DIC showed an average speed of 46 mph city/highway. We are looking forward to enjoyable summer driving with this car. Update: November, 2016 - Enjoyable summer with the Cascada. Fun car to drive. Current mileage is around 3,000 with no problems encountered. Still getting a lot of positive comments.

Not enough safety features such as side mirror blind spot notification. No warning if your too close to the other car or parking in a garage. Back up camera is fair. NO beeping noise to notify the driver of something in the way

My new Cascada has "computer problems". Often it will not start. Windows go up and down for no reason. Top won't close. Motor warning light goes on. Stabilitrack light goes on, all warning lights go on, forward collision alert does not work. Dealer can't seem to find a problem. Major continuing efforts to fix the problems associated with this car have proven unsuccessful. The dealership and GM have been great to work with and have continually provided me with either a loaner or a rental car while attempting to fix the problems. Now they are giving me a new 2017 Cascada, at no cost to me, to replace the 2016 Cascada. I should be driving it next week. I hope to update my review after having the opportunity to drive it for a month or so. I really loved the convertible (when it worked).

Gorgeous, elegant, sporty..but could use some work

I just recently bought the car in Graystone Metallic with beige/black interior. The car is extremely attractive, and I can't overstate this. Aside from how it looks inside and out, I love the way it drives. The handling is very impressive as it seems to hug the road tightly. The seats are phenomenally comfortable and well bolstered. I find the controls are in easy reach. The car is so quiet I can't hear it running. The acceleration is smooth and energetic. The sound system is great. The built-in wifi is a very nice. I honestly couldn't be happier with the car.

We wanted a convertible, I wanted something fun to drive with style. I owned a Lotus Elise, but that was too small as we aged, so we were looking for something a little bit more. We looked at the Audi A3, but if it had the features of this (German company Opel) car, it cost $12K more. I didn't buy it to turn heads, but to be honest, it gets a significant amount of attention. Maybe not like the Lotus did, but it's a very good looking car. It's not fast, but it handles well, I love the front end suspension that handles the vagaries of the road and stops the odd bump from pulling the steering. Very nice feature. Overall this is a great touring car with an amazingly quiet interior even with the top and windows down. It's also got super spousal support, a moderate price, and solid overall performance. Take a look, I promise you won't be disappointed...IF you are willing to keep an open mind and realize a Buick can be pretty cool.

Nice Opel

Visibility is very poor. Front window view is blocked by sensing equipment. Rear window visibility is about 2 feet by 10 inches. Forward collision alert is useless. It doesn't do anything? It should be stopping you, but doesn't. If I had to rely on the alert, I would have hit the object by the time I heard the alert. Same thing with Lane Departure Warning. It beeps if you drift into another lane? What is it's purpose? If there is a car then you've already hit it. I think Forward Collision and Lane Departure Alerts are a waste of money. Autonomous Cruise Control and Blind spot alert would have been a better option. There are no widow locks like there is on my Chrysler and the top down and window express down are on the console. My dogs are constantly rolling down my windows. There is very little storage space in the car. I thought my Chrysler Convertible was bad, this has 1/2 the storage. The engine has more power than I thought there would be. The turbo and 6 speed gives it plenty of pick up. I'm not impressed with the navigation system. The 6 year old technology on my Chrysler runs circles around the Buick. Voice recognition is useless with the top down. Love the Rainsense, Auto on/off headlamp control, and the climate control. Never have to touch them. Backseat pass through is great. Backseats are useless. Would have been better to make the car a 2 seater and add more storage space to the trunk. Car handles extremely well, reminds me of my Corvette. Nice car, I like it, but way over priced! I own 2 convertibles and my Chrysler is a lot more car for about $11,000 less. If your buying American, forget it. The transmission is made in Mexico, engine is made in Hungary, car is built in Poland and distributed from Germany. Its an Opel with Buick emblems. The car is a Vauxhall Cascada in the UK, a Holden Cascada in Australia, an Opel Cabrio in Spain, an Opel Cascada in the rest of Europe and a Buick Cascada in the U.S. and China. Same car different emblems. Overall I like it, but it needs some improvements as mentioned above. UPDATE: I have now had the car for several months. Tried to put the top down using the key fob as stated in the manual and as instructed by the dealer. Windows retracted, but stopped at that point and the top wouldn't go down. I took it to the dealer and they worked on it for about 2 hours. They called the manufacturer when they couldn't figure out the problem. Long story short, GM decided to not install the software until the 2017 Cascada (it is on the Canadian version). Called and complained to GM, but even though the dealer thought the software was there and the manual states it's there. GM won't fix the problem. I thought GM emerged from bankruptcy as a new and improved company. Not so, same old crappy customer service, last GM I will own.

Had the Cascada for a month now and it is a joy to drive. It has a classy design and great leather interior that is extremely well designed. We recently went on first road trip of 1100 miles and it was great. We encountered strong winds in New Mexico and the Cascada went straight as an arrow while other vehicles were all over the place. We held the speed at 80 MPH and got 26 MPG which is actually pretty good considering all the headwinds. Cascada allows the user to get extra room in the truck if the top is up by merely pressing forward the device that holds the top in the trunk. We had lots of room for a very large suitcase and three other carry on type bags(also could easily hold a set of golf clubs in this mode). The sound systems is top of the class and can be easily heard because the road noise is kept at a minimum on the Cascada(yes even at 80 MPH).

My wife and I had a Pontiac G6 convert and also a VW EOS. This car runs circles around them both, especially the EOS, leaks were constant under heavy rain or car wash. The seats are very comfortable, sound system is great and everything is close to the touch. We recently took a road trip to Naples Fl. from Tampa and got 29.8 MPG. Not bad for a car with only 300 miles on it. We look forward to driving this car every chance we get!

Not in the league of a (any model) VW EOS AT ALL!

I was so excited & really wanted to like this car, but ended up buying a 2016 VW EOS "Final Edition." Quality of interior material is about as cheap as it gets in this price range & below (Think Pontiac Sunfire). Now, the EOS is FAST FAST FAST! 0-60 in 5.5 seconds, faster in the Sport model due to 18" wheels coupled with Pirelli P-Zero Nero's. Cornering is flat on the EOS, & the Hardtop/Sunroof combo (The ONLY ONE EVER MADE, Period) is much more solid, quiet, warm in cold climates than any ragtop. Great gas mileage too. Ok, this sounds like a VW EOS review, so all I can say is TEST BOTH, & YOU WILL NOTICE A HUGE DIFFERENCE! At around the same price (And MUCH less for a Used, certified EOS, this car just must be passed by!) I cannot justify reviewing a vehicle when at the same price there are other vehicles that are MUCH MUCH better, in just about every way! Even the Mazda Miata, albeit much smaller & for no one over 6 feet tall, BLOWS THIS AWAY BY LEAPS & BOUNDS! But, the best Convertible, Lb. for Lb., maybe ever made, is the overlooked, very well made, extremely safe & reliable (Proven) VW EOS. And, IT DOES NOT LEAK A DROP (That was the very 1st model year, since fixed with better seals)! This Buick can best be described in total as a "Pontiac or Chrysler Sebring Convertible redux." But don't take my word for it, READ THE PRO'S REVIEWS!

It is a very solid car. It handles very well and holds the road/corners really well. It is not a high performance car, so if you want one get a mustang or camaro. The 4 cylinder turbo moves you down the road really well but your not going to use the car at a drag strip. All the controls are there in front of you and I like that it has a key to start. I'm not a fan of start buttons, kind of brings back the 50's with the starter on the gas pedal. Everywhere i go people are very positive about the cars looks and should bring in lots of traffic to the dealership. It's fun to drive and that's what it should be about. It's a great go for a drive car with the top down and on those really hot days the a/c works really well and keeps you comfortable.

For some unknown reason, the car has double rear lights. Two sets. Beautiful outside lights. Then open the trunk, and there is a second set of rear lights with blinkers, and all. This takes up a large part of the trunk space (already naturally limited by the fold down top). I could not fit a set of golf clubs nor a suitcase because of these double lights. WHY???? No one knew. Then one salespersons said "well if you are stopped on a dark highway, with trunk open to change a tire, they are a safety" hmmmmm. How many times in my 40 year driving career have I stopped for that? None. Not valid. j I am looking to try and remove the inner rear lights. Just a tremendous waste of trunk space. And cost to build and what a cost to repair!!! Dennis Gates
