2016 Buick Encore Base

Bought my 2016 Buick Encore March 2019. It had 20,000 miles on it. Actually had to make a quick decision to buy due to my Ford Escape, which i loved, having a major engine leak. Test drove and had low mileage, and was clean. Bought local. As with big purchases, and used cars it is a gamble. After 6 months had my oil changed and when on the lift mechanics noticed green fluid splattered over a/c compressor. Didn't even know i had a problem. Went home and checked warranty. Lucked out was under bumper to bumper up till 50,000 miles / or 4 years. Just made it, off warranty in 3 months. So, now it is up to the buick dealer to fix. Fingers crossed that i did not buy someone elses problem car.

Buick Encore: Outstanding Price to Performance.

2016 Buick Encore Base

The 2016 Buick Encore is an exceptional vehicle for the price. It has excellent gas mileage allowance for long trips with minimum fuel stops. The ride is smooth and enjoyable. The short wheelbase makes turning easy, and parking less of a chore. The performance is unrivaled in its class, as it very rarely has any major problems. The only con I have found is that the radio and a few other electronics are somewhat dated. Other than that, the Buick Encore is an amazing car.

- Jacob D

A great car for a single person who usually has one passenger and travels a lot.

2016 Buick Encore Base

I absolutely love my little car. It is a great size to get around some of the tougher terrain without being bulky. The turning radius is amazing as well and the amount of small parking I can fit in is nice. I love the lights under the trim during the night. The only thing is the tires are super shallow and they will burst if you hit a pothole too hard or a curb.

- Crystal D

Great ride, and enjoy driving it!

2016 Buick Encore Base

Drives great, smooth riding car. Great gas mileage. Very comfortable, and plenty of room. Back seats fold down to make plenty of room if you have a load to haul. Backup camera very helpful. Like having digital and regular speedometer. Only thing is done had a bit of mechanical problem with it but was covered under warranty.

- Tina N

Overall, I Love my Buick!

2016 Buick Encore Base

Rides smooth and gets approximately 30 miles per gallon! Perfect size vehicle. One armrest in the front on the driver's seat is not comfortable for passenger. Dash has a sleek look and is user friendly. Sometimes does not understand what I'm saying when trying to use hands free calling. Overall, love my Buick!

General vehicle satisfaction

2016 Buick Encore Base

Thoroughly enjoy my car (space, leg room, features), and I can't fit two car seats in the back. I enjoy the heated seats, and using Sirius XM while driving too. Only downside is that it has a terrible blind spot when trying to merge lanes, even though it will beep continuously, I still get nervous.

- Jourdan T

Classy car with a hip style. As already stated, this is not your father's car.

2016 Buick Encore Base

Only a few things to nitpick about. Cup holders to small. Difficult to insert USB for iPod. Rearview mirror needs to be wider. Visibility problems for me looking over right shoulder, blind spot between rear passenger and back window. Good gas mileage. I am otherwise happy with performance.

- Andrea G

Overall great car, some minor things I would change.

2016 Buick Encore Base

Overall my car is a great car. I just wish the year I had would have came with touch screen and more leg room. Seats are comfortable and it drives great. It has Bluetooth connection for music and phone, which is great. Another thing I wish it had was an armrest for the passenger seat.

- Victoria T

Interesting detail- the Bluetooth capability.

2016 Buick Encore Base

Love the bluetooth capability, rear view camera and the OnStar capability. I wish I had pursued an All-Wheel Drive model as this model can struggle in unplowed snow very easily. It's a great little SUV model, has great gas mileage and has a generous back end storage space.

- Sarah S

A fantastic ride that will have you smiling.

2016 Buick Encore Base

This vehicle is the best I have ever owned. It rides so smooth that it seems you are parked. Passengers with me often fall asleep the ride is so smooth. The vehicle can get up and go too. This car handles the snow excellent too. Gas mileage is what was expected.
