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.

Pure comfort and smart looking. Great size!

2017 Buick Encore Essence

Comfortable on long trips. Love the features in it and the gas mileage is pretty good. Great to drive. Not too big or too small. Feels like a luxury vehicle. Great looking. Controls are in convenient place in the car so they are accessible when driving.
