My Buick encore is great.

2017 Buick Encore Essence

My Buick encore is extremely reliable I have never had a problem with starting the vehicle or anything else. It performs very well speeding up to pass is easy and gas mileage is very good. I average about 28 to 30 miles per gallon. Acceleration is excellent. My vehicle is very comfortable and has a very comfortable ride. The bucket seats are extremely comfortable for a small vehicle. I love the touch screen and the ability to plug in my mp3 or a tablet or my phone. There is only 2 things I would like more. I really wish it had a hands-free liftgate. I also could use just a little more room. I have to put my seats down regularly because I shop at sam's and Costco. In fact they pretty much stay down. If it had a sunroof that is just a little bonus but is not absolutely necessary. I typically only use it a few times a year.

Love everything... Except the chipping paint.

2017 Buick Encore

Seats are comfortable and fits my body perfectly. The power seat adjustments are smooth and easy to use. I can set the lights to come on automatically. The car beeps if I have left the keys in the car and this has saved me the hassle of searching many times. The mpg counter helps me to get better mileage. The handling and drive performance are excellent. I was worried about the size of the trunk but it has worked out fine and fits more than I thought. The seats are easy to lay down to expand the size of the trunk if needed. The paint on the back is chipping which is my biggest complaint as of now at about 28000 miles.

Fully recommend Buick Encore for starting drivers

2017 Buick Encore Base

The Buick Encore comes with blind spot detectors and a backup camera which are my two most favorite features of the car. The back up camera and the blind spot doctors are very helpful. The car is perfect for new drivers as the car is small in length and width, coming with a hand break a well used safety feature for new drivers and their passenger. The Encore comes with many features but something that it lacks, that I would like in the trim are heated seats, steering wheel, and apple carplay. Living in New England with cold winters, heated seats and steering wheel would be very useful.
