Best and cutest mini SUV I have seen!

I love my Buick Encore! It provides power when I need to accelerate. Its' size is perfect for me and four other passengers. I have moved several items in the cargo area with the back seats down. It has great gas mileage. I looked at several similar vehicles before purchasing mine but once I saw the pretty interior, I was sold. I didn't want any other SUV. The seats are a mix of leather and cloth which keep the seats comfortable even in the Texas heat in the summertime and coldest of weather in the winter time. I do a lot of driving so I enjoy the lumbar support. I am a short person so I like the adjustment to lower the seat as well. The driver seat has an armrest. The back seat has a fold down armrest with cup holders. It has two glove compartments. It has a place for audio connection and USB connection. Both vanity mirrors have lights. I really like the Bluetooth hands free phone calling. The controls on the steering wheel include operation of the phone, radio control, volume control and cruise control. The dash control display makes you aware of weather alerts, automatic replies when someone texts you that can be customized and radio/CD player controls.

2014 Buick, you never would have guessed...

The performance of my car is fairly good. There are times where I feel like the car is slowing down, but that may be due to an oil change I need. The car features a handful of things such as a blind spot light. The blind spot light on the side mirrors which is extremely helpful for me as I am a new driver. The car also has adjusters on the seat that allows me to angle it and push the chair back as I please but the placement and way to perform the task was a little confusing at first as it isn't a lever (as it is traditionally) but rather a oval shaped knob you tilt yourself. To lean the chair back, the lever for it is unexpectedly small and positioned near my elbow which was difficult to navigate at first and something I mention to people who ride my car for the first time. The overall sound system of the car is a 10/10. It's easy to navigate around channels and to connect to Bluetooth which is an issue I have with most cars.

Love the look and features of the car!

I love this car! The size is perfect for me. It has enough room for my golf clubs but is small enough for me to maneuver in parking lots and such. I usually drive by myself sometimes my son is with me and it works great. I have had all the suggested maintenance done on the vehicle and have never had a problem with it running. It rides smooth and passengers comment that it rides nice. My car has many of the additional features that I enjoy. Sunroof lets in lots of light. Folding seats to make a large back area. In my climate the heating steering wheel and seats are great. I take advantage of most of the hands free options and steering wheel controls for the entertainment system. Overall I just love this car.
