The Insights on the 2018 Buick Encore: Problems and Experiences

2018 Buick Encore Sport Touring

The car is very reliable. I only have had a few problems so far. The car keeps shaking above 75 mph and I took it to a dealer but it still is shaking. The car had another problem where the all wheel drive sensor kept saying the all wheel drive was bad and was constantly beeping on my drive home one day. The sensor was bad and when I took it in because the car died they changed the battery and said they had to order a part. The car died after one more time. The seats are uncomfortable and I find it hard to sit up straight. The angle is weird and the seats are hard. I love the screen and all the compartments in there. There's an armrest for the driver which I extremely love. The lumbar support on the driver's seat is very beneficial and I use it a lot. I like the control systems to change between my oil and tire pressure. I like the middle cup holder in the backseat it is smart and not in the way ever. It comes down from the middle seat if you need it; The glove box is huge and fits a lot in it which is nice. I overall love the car.

Great vehicle, with a few issues.

2018 Buick Encore Sport Touring

This vehicle has many features and is easy to drive. My favorite feature is that I can check the tire pressure with the flick of my wrist. I live in an area with terrible roads, and it's something I rely on every time I hit a pothole. The trunk storage space is not ideal for more than one person. My groceries each week barely fit, and a recent trip with my friend to Florida had us grateful we didn't have anyone else riding with us, because there would have been no room. The lift-gate is not automatic, and the option is not available on this model. At first I didn't think it mattered, but I've found myself wishing for it several times since purchasing one year ago. My main complaint, however, is the headrests on the seats. They are angled forward and I find riding for long distances exceptionally uncomfortable. I drive 3 hours a day for work, so by the end of the day my neck is so sore I can't stand the pain. Aside from those things, however, this is a wonderful vehicle, at a very reasonable price.

Buick Encore for a small family is recommended

2018 Buick Encore Base

SUV type vehicle for a small family. Controls are easy to learn and use. Seats are comfortable. Gas mileage is amazing. Not a great choice for travel with family since there isn't much room for storage. A rear facing car seat fits but the seats in front of it has to be all the way forward, not leaving much leg room for the occupants. You can see all this from looking at the vehicle so there is no surprise about how much room is available. Driving on the freeway/ expressways are great. Speed acceleration is good. Has cruise control. There are a few blind spots that you need to be aware of. Nothing to bad and I am an overly cautious driver. Vehicle also equipped with backup camera. Hands free /Bluetooth controls. Overall worth it!

- Katie M

Smart Comfortable Ride That is consumer savvy

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

The only problem that I have with it is that it has a blind spot on the left front side. It is excellent on gas mileage I currently get 30 miles per gallon. We have had a horrible winter with lots of snow and ice and I was very pleased with how it handled even on unplowed roads. It Drives very smooth and is quiet. It is stylish and sophisticated but very affordable. It has all the latest technology My favorite is the touchpad screen so easy to use. While it is smaller than the Enclave there is still plenty of room for groceries plus both seats fold down flat for even more room. I drive a lot to work and for my child's activities and I enjoy every trip I take in the Encore.

Great car, but I other brands have the same features as OnStar (but for free).

2018 Buick Encore

The style, body, and interior are all beautiful. I love that my phone connects with my car so I can use google maps, my phone, and listen to my music; I can purchase a Wi-Fi hotspot for my car for traveling. My only issue I have is that I have seen other vehicles with very similar features that do not require an OnStar subscription. This includes tire pressure, oil life, miles left on the tank, etc. I wish my car had these features without having to purchase a subscription. I realize that I get 5 years of free OnStar (their most basic package not for sale on their website) but after that these features will disappear.

- Emma H

I love being able to manage my messages and have them read back to me.

2018 Buick Encore

Buick encore is a perfect vehicle, great gas mileage, interior is easy to take care of, lots of perks. The only thing I wish I could change is the auto stop feature, this feature allows the car to stop once it is in drive but not moving, like at a red light. I find this an inconvenience, due to the fact that if I am driving and come to a complete stop because I am going to shut the car off, the car automatically shuts itself off, but then when you shift it to park it restarts - and this is every time. Seems needless, there ought to be a shut off for this feature.

- Tammy M

Great gas mileage, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi hotspot.

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

I love that the backup camera is in color and the lines which guide you curve as you turn the wheel showing where the car will be going. I have been getting 29.6 miles per gallon around the city and highway combined. The turbo is great and it climbs hills with no problem. It has automatic transmission with manual shifting for steep hills. Push button start is great and the car honks if you accidentally leave the key fob in the car and close the door. I love that it is not too tall or hard to climb into. It is a quiet ride. It has Wi-Fi hotspot and Bluetooth.

- Sharon E

Great to drive a building encore.

2018 Buick Encore

I love the way it drives. It is so easy to drive and back up, especially the rearview camera, this is the first one I have had. Since I am short I do not like the front seat headrests. The passenger side front seat is in my site of vision when I turn to look out the back side door window. I like that the back seat headrests slide down over the backseat so they are out of the way of my vision when I look back. I really like the Bluetooth hook up for my phone, especially the handsfree when talking or receiving calls. The on star is really nice.

- Vicky B

Buick Encore it's not your grandma's car with all the new gadgets in it.

2018 Buick Encore Base

I have had my Buick for just over a year now. It is great on gas has many features such as Sirius satellite radio and Wi-Fi inside the car. The easy to use app you can download called my Buick gives all kinds of quick tips to help you and tells you when your vehicle needs to be serviced. Plus it gives you a monthly driving report for those of you with teen drivers this is great. Oh did I mention it can locate and unlock your car for you too. I love my Buick Encore rides like a dream but a little on the pricey side.

- Sheila S

Love the storage compartments in the hatch and under the passenger seat.

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

I love my Buick Encore, at 40 thousand miles I am at a lifetime mpg of 30.6 which is great when you drive 70 miles a day for work. I have 3 children who all fit comfortably in the back seat, with enough room in the hatch for stroller and groceries. I also like the storage compartment under the passenger seat. I do suggest with children to purchase the all weather floor mats, which keep the interior from getting messed up from wet AMD sometimes muddy feet.

- Hannah W

Reliable and fun to drive.

2018 Buick Encore

My 2018 Buick Encore is fun to drive and comfortable. It has a touch screen that is easy to operate and you can connect your smartphone to it. Drives easily. Gets great gas mileage. Has great pick up for a 4 cylinder. It sits up a little higher than a car for great visibility. It has not let me down in any way. I love the encore so much this is my second one. I had a 2015 that I just loved too and just got a newer model.

- Barb R

It has OnStar, sirius radio, Bluetooth, and I Heart Radio.

2018 Buick Encore

The car interior is very nice. Seats are comfortable. It has OnStar and sirius radio. Bluetooth. Personally I think the car is too small for a family of 4. Very little trunk space. The back seats do fold down but not easily. Good on gas mileage. When you drive in reverse it shows you behind you on the screen in the dashboard. It helps you navigate into a parking space if you are going in reverse. Back windshield wiper.

- Kristina S

Basic luxury, driver friendly.

2018 Buick Encore

I really love the way the car drives, smooth and easy to handle. I like the in dash screens and the apple carplay feature. I do wish that I had a little more control on some of the dash and screen settings. The driver seat is a little uncomfortable because of the shape. I would prefer all leather opposed to the leather fabric combo that come standard. My model is the basic model but it still feels very luxury!

- Cassie K

A great mini SUV with the convenience of large SUV.

2018 Buick Encore

I love my car! It is great on gas mileage! I fill it up once a week and it only costs me about $35. I love the ride and how I can squeeze into the smallest parking spots! The backup camera is one of the most important features! It is handles really great! Convenient storage compartment in the back! Easy conversion for more storage space. I love the Wifi and Bluetooth settings and onstar for navigation!

- Sandra D

Great SUV for a tight budget family!

2018 Buick Encore

I love everything about our vehicle. I would buy a Buick again for sure. I love the smooth ride & handling. The only thing I would change about it is maybe the trunk space. We should have upgraded since we have 2 kids & would like to fit a wagon in the back but the price range of the Encore was much more in our budget. We have a 2 year lease of this vehicle and I know I'll be sad to turn it in!

- Nikole L

A Buick Encore is one of the best cars on the market

2018 Buick Encore

This is a big step up from my last car. It has apple CarPlay, a touch screen, push start, and you can lock or unlock the door by pushing a button on the handle if you have the keys in your hand. It speeds up pretty fast and is very smooth riding. It's a perfect size for anyone that doesn't want a huge vehicle. It's a very nice car and I would recommend it to anyone that asks which car to buy.

- Skyler B

Cheap. Excellent gas mileage.

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

My 2018 Buick encore preferred has been a reliable vehicle since we purchased it. One of the reasons for the purchase was the price which is one of the cheaper SUV's on the market and with the warranty that it came with which is better than normal made it a no brainer. It's quiet inside when driving even on the highway and the handling is average. Gas mileage is fantastic.

- John R

Tiny car but nice and fun to drive!

2018 Buick Encore

I like it! Everything about it is great. My only complaint is that it is tiny. There is very little space inside. People in the backseat have no leg room, and it is almost impossible to fit an infant car seat back there. I have to put it in the passenger side and lean the front seat forward. So, an infant and an adult passenger cannot ride in the car at the same time.

- Harmony C

My vehicle is much roomier than it looks like on the outside.

2018 Buick Encore

I wish the arm rest was somehow on both seats in the front. It would make it more comfortable for passengers in the car. I also am not crazy about having to pull the seat part up before I put the seats down. I was use to being able to just put the backs down in my previous vehicle. Overall though I really like the car. It feels much bigger inside that it looks.

- Barbara J

2018 Buick Encore. review

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

I have had no problems it runs out great easy to use love the interior features it gets great gas mileage is easy to get in and out of an easy to maintain this model comes with a luggage rack and has plenty of cup holders and room for a small family also has plenty of cargo space back seats can be folded down if needed for extra storage

- Chris C

My Buick encore is awesome.

2018 Buick Encore

I love my Buick! I never would have thought I would say that. Always thought it was an old people's car but I was wrong. I feel seasoned but luxurious too. I love the navigation and the feature on the mirrors that let you know if there is a car next to you which really helps with the blind spots (especially for short people.

- Melissa E

Spacious, luxury car designed for single drivers or small families.

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

I love all of the modern features that my car has. It has a great performance, have not had any issues in the year I have owned it. The seats are comfortable and the car is spacious, would be a good family car or a great young drivers car. It is safe and extremely reliable. I do not know if I will ever go back to another car.

- Tara Z

I love my 2018 Buick Encore!

2018 Buick Encore

I love my Buick Encore. I bought the Encore when I totaled my Chevy Camaro and I don't know why I didn't start off with the Encore. It handles so well and the ride is smooth. The fuel economy ranges in the 30s. I haven't had it long enough to speak on the reliability, but knowing that it's a GM product I have no worries.

- Samantha K

This encore should be called "Buick little giant".

2018 Buick Encore

I like the vehicle very much. It looks like a small SUV, but I can get an 8 foot piece of lumber in side and still close the back door. I have only had it for 7 months. There are no problems, it is very dependable and very comfortable. The engine has plenty of get up and go. This a perfect vehicle for a retired person.

- Nicholas W

All-around good car with great gas mileage

2018 Buick Encore Base

I love my Buick Encore. It's very comfortable and spacious. I really wish it was offered with heated seats. The trunk is a little small, but it works. I love how the passenger seat folds completely flat. I also love that the gas tank is a little larger than cars I've had in the past. It gets great gas mileage as well.

- Alyssa K

2018 Encore: perfect for mountain and city driving

2018 Buick Encore Base

I love my Encore! The vehicle is perfect for where I live, great size for city driving and strength/power for day trips up to the mountains. The only thing I have to say against it is the back seat does not fit tall humans real well, very little leg space in the back, however, that is a normal thing for compact SUVs.

- Chelsea B

2018 Buick encore, what a great vehicle.

2018 Buick Encore Base

2018 Buick encore is a great vehicle. I like being up higher off the ground but do not like driving a huge vehicle that is harder to park and get around in. The base model has a ton of great features that most other companies charge a premium for. The only thing I wish it had was remote start with the base trim.

- Zack M

Super cute, sporty vehicle.

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

It's great small SUV. I travel a lot for my job. Although Buick has been known to be an old person car. They have sported up their vehicles. Super cute. It's a lease - leather - all wheel drive - backup camera - safety features etc. but next time I will be getting a bigger SUV. This is a little too small for me.

- Alyssa C

Great comfort and fun to drive!!

2018 Buick Encore Base

It's fun and easy to drive! Very comfortable to ride in and there are places to plug in your phone. I love the size of the vehicle, neither too big or to small. Lots of extras too, back up camera, flip down cup holder in the back seat. The seats fold in such a way that they lay flat when more room is needed.

- Vanessa S

2017 Buick encore had more features than my 2018 that were important to me.

2018 Buick Encore

My Buick encore is perfect in size, performance, gas mileage, ease of driving, accessories, and reliability. It is the 2nd encore we have leased because of all the features; however our 2017 encore had side mirror vehicle in blind spot alerts that the 2018 model does not include. That is the only negative.

- Peggy R

I really like the daytime lights and they come on automatically at dusk.

2018 Buick Encore

My trunk space is a little smaller than my previous Jeep liberty. Like the way it handles. Back seat is a good size. It took me a little while to get used to the difference of a smaller engine and difference in pick up. Air conditioning and radio work great. Cute car. Feel more protected than in the Jeep.

- Ellen E

The GPS navigation is great.

2018 Buick Encore

I wish the back trunk was a bit bigger. The front seats are roomy but the back seats and trunk are small. Its fine for 2 people but not for more than 2. It's a nice riding car. This is my second encore and I enjoyed different features from both cars. I would not go back to a car after driving and SUV.

- Kate M

The 2018 Buick encore highlights.

2018 Buick Encore

This car is a very comfortable ride & pretty good on gas mileage. There are very minimal blinds spots. Sits higher than a regular car, which is nice. The driver seat has great lumbar support. The front & rear seats are roomy & comfortable. The rear space is very private & has sufficient roomy rear.

- Denise H

Compact luxury feeling but without the enormous price tag.

2018 Buick Encore

Very comfortable seating. Good size trunk for suitcases or large quantities of groceries. It performs well in winter weather road conditions. My average gas mileage is around 27 miles to the gallon. It has a number of added electronic features that could be appealing to the techno savvy consumer.

- Sara G

The Buick Encore is the best car to buy.

2018 Buick Encore Base

The vehicle is very nice. The inside is beautiful and the seats are comfortable. Provides a bunch of space. The truck has Wi-Fi and OnStar connection which really helps. The trunk is very wide and spacious enough to put quite a bit in. The inside (mainly on the doors) is very nicely stitched.

- Bray E

Very pretty interior the seats or very comfy.

2018 Buick Encore

It is a great family car run very smooth and it is a gas saver. On the freeway it is a very smooth drive and does not want gas at all. I do recommend this car especially if it is just a car you would drive before fun/ personal. It also a very comfy car to be in or have your buddy's with you.

- Chris U

When I hook up my phone to my car my phone screen goes onto my car screen.

2018 Buick Encore

Not a lot of space in the backseat of the car. I am about to have an infant car seat in there full time and it takes up a lot of the back seats. Vehicle does not have remote start like older years of this vehicle have. No light on side mirrors to warn of other vehicles in your blind spots.

- Nicole B

Compact and affordable Buick.

2018 Buick Encore Base

I have not had any problems with my vehicle. It has great gas mileage, I usually have between 26-30 miles per gallon with this car. It is very reliable, comfortable, and I enjoy the few features that I have. I received limited features because of cost, not because they were not available.

- Meg L

Great Features. I love the Carplay feature of my car.

2018 Buick Encore Base

I have not had any difficulties with my vehicle. I have had it for a year and am very pleased with the performance and gas mileage. Service has been good as well. I am comfortable with the size of the vehicle. I can fit my granddaughter's car seat in the back seat without any difficulty.

- Nancy H

Great gas mileage for a small SUV.

2018 Buick Encore

I have a Buick encore and I didn't realize how much I loved it until I went on a road trip and realized I was getting almost 30 miles to the gallon.. I think that is pretty good. With my other cars I did not get good gas mileage and I think that is a great consideration for this car.

- Debbie M

Feature-packed Crossover.

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

It's a great crossover car, it gets great gas mileage and drives very smoothly. It also has very high quality features such as Apple Play. It has the ability to carry 5 passengers comfortably and has ample leg room. It also features heated seats which is very nice in the winter time.

- Emily P

Very good SUV for the price.

2018 Buick Encore

Performs well and like the head and leg room enough space in sitting and luggage area, very reliable good on gas comfortable in sitting during driving can make sit go up or down very good heating and cooling system like that dealership takes time with service over next three years.

- Judy F

Small and compact but competes with the big boys.

2018 Buick Encore

This is the perfect car. It is a smaller SUV and is great on gas. The instrument panel is easy to adapt to and the digital screen is large and text is bold and easy to read. Body is very sleek and expensive looking. I like the OnStar capability. Has Wi-Fi and I use it all the time.

- Shirley H

My Buick Encore has Wi-Fi!

2018 Buick Encore Base

I love my encore. It drives very smooth and is extremely comfortable. It is also very up to date with the world we live in today by offering Wi-Fi. One of the best features to me is the plastic mats that it came with and the carpet ones you can switch them out with if you want to.

- Ashley S

My off road package 2018 Buick encore.

2018 Buick Encore Sport Touring

My Buick has a turbo system in it which is not really good in weather conditions for North Dakota it is a 2018 it already has had the turbo fixed. The encore seats 4 people comfortably. Would not recommend 5 people for long travel. Get around well in snow. Heater could be better.

- Valerie S

It is great on gas and rides very smooth!

2018 Buick Encore

It is just the right size. It is great on gas and drives very smooth. I haven't had any problems with it so far and this is my 2nd encore. The color is great and I love that it has OnStar and Sirius XM in it too. The air conditioning works great and hopefully the heat will too.

- Laura F

2018 Buick encore. I love it!

2018 Buick Encore Base

It works great and have had no problems with it. I love how it handles and drive. Nice takeoff power. I wish that it had the option to start it using the app on my phone but it does not have the capability. I wish I would have gotten that and the rear lift gate using your foot.

- Michele M

Nice interior with lots of features friendly system handling.

2018 Buick Encore

The 2018 Buick encore ranks among the top subcompact SUVs. It has one of the nicest interiors in its class, a good list of standard features, and top-notch predicted reliability ratings. Though its performance will not wow you, it has capable engine power and composed handling.

- Jay Y

Not bad overall. No major complaints. Ok.

2018 Buick Encore Base

There is no seek on the radio. The automatic car starter has limited distance range. Drives well. Small. Seems durable. Sound/speakers aren't that great. Small so fits in all parking spots. Feels heavy when driving (in a good way). Great gas mileage. No sunroof or heated seats.

- Cara G

The Buick encore is black, the windows are not tinted.

2018 Buick Encore Base

It's reliable so far I've had 0 problems with the car and it's comfortable to drive and has great gas mileage. The back seat is kind of tight in my opinion but it gets the job done. The seats also fold down for extra storage which is great for shopping or luggage for trips.

- Tyler D

Love it!! Super cute and very easy to handle, fuel efficient.

2018 Buick Encore Base

Love my Encore!! It is very fuel efficient, a super comfortable ride, handles well even in lots of rain. Perfect size makes it easy to reach all the buttons and gadgets. I like that I'm able to haul things in it - the back seats lay all the way down so that is super helpful.

- Laura S

Like it over all will recommend this car to everyone.

2018 Buick Encore

I love my. New Buick encore it has. Nice. Seats and its nice on gas and I like the color it's blue. I have a lot of complements. Its has hatchback. Nev. Features and nice sound system I really like the headlights and the room I like to fit. All my friends and. Family in it.

- Esmeralda G

It is not my dad's Buick for sure!

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

My vehicle is a wonderful car. It is the first time in my life I have ever owned a Buick. I've always owned Chevrolet cars in the past. This Buick seems to be built very well. I love the detail, the inside is comfy and it is been very reliable thus far. I would recommend.

- Cindy S

Buick encore 2018 testimonial.

2018 Buick Encore Sport Touring

I love my Buick encore. It is my encore to own and the sporting package with the sunroof is great. The availability to have OnStar is a major plus. It is the perfect size for me and my small dog to take trips. For me it is the perfect height and size to drive comfortably.

- Carol C

I; like having a rearview mirror in it.

2018 Buick Encore

We have no problems with our new car. It ride nicely and has so many perks on it. I wish it. Were a little larger but it is fine for the two of. Us. It is a white car and I like the color as it. Can be easily seen on the road whereas a. Black car is not seen well at all.

Buick Encore Pros and Cons

2018 Buick Encore Base

Love my Buick encore for the most part. I go to school 7 hours away so I get a lot of quality time with it! Few things that bug me though: 1. the back seats don't really go all the way down 2. bluetooth connection problems sometimes 3. does not accelerate quickly

- Maddie N

It's a great car for everyday use.

Overall Awesome Vehicle, Very Classy, Great Features, The Inside Flows

2018 Buick Encore Essence

My vehicle has every feature I want and need. It has a lot of pep, smooth comfortable ride/drive. There is only 2 things I don't like the tires don't hold Nitrogen very good and my sunroof doesn't have a net to keep bugs or birds from flying into your vehicle.


The Buick Encore is comfortable, your body will love it.

2018 Buick Encore

The Buick Encore that we bought in May of this year has a number of wonderful innovations. One of them that we love is the lumbar support in the driver's seat. As well as Onstar. It has been a very comfortable car, especially since we have back and neck problems.

- Erin C

Fantastic compact SUV Buick encore.

2018 Buick Encore

My 2018 Buick encore is hands down the most comfortable car I have driven. It has an extremely smooth ride and cancels out the outside noise. The compact SUV is a fantastic size and does not compromise the trunk space. The leather interior is also very luxurious.

- Sarah M

Beautiful made vehicle that is fun to drive!

- Gina J

Great car for the money!!

2018 Buick Encore Base

- Billie M

One of the most fuel efficient car out there...

2018 Buick Encore Preferred II

What I like about this vehicle is the fuel economy. Very fuel efficient. I can go 40 to 43 miles per hour on a highway and about 35 on the back roads. It drives smooth, spacious. Very good even for a family of 5. Very reliable and packed with safety features.

- Lh H

Under seat storage compartment.

2018 Buick Encore

Not enough leg room in rear seat area, great for couples, good gas mileage. Not your vehicle if you need space for large items. Quiet inside can not hear all the noise of highway traffic. Great for leisurely drives. Not the vehicle for multiple car seats.

- Rosie C

I love the leather trim..

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

The car is fantastic but the only issue I have is the car does not have a pick me up. It putts when you put your foot on the gas pedal. The back seat cover fell off for no reason. back seat is small for three adults to sit back there. Try the car for yourself

- Marcella O

Beautiful, smooth and blue.

2018 Buick Encore

I really like my vehicle. It is a beautiful blue and comes with all the latest gadgets such as a backup camera, GPS, touch screen features and a push start button to operate the vehicle. My car is very comfortable and has a smooth clean black clean anterior.

Sleek and elegant, reliable drives great

2018 Buick Encore Base

I love my car so much it's reliable drives good, & fast the features are nice the design is elegant. Very comfortable to drive. So far everything is good no repair is done yet. I love my music also it's keyless. The seats are adjustable very convenient

- Niche M

Flash and dash in one car!

2018 Buick Encore

The Buick encore is a mid-sized vehicle that provides enough space for me and my dog to zip in and around town. I love that it sits up high, especially in a city that floods when there is heavy rainfall. Not too big to navigate these narrow streets as well.

- Anne M

Nice, powerful, smooth ride

2018 Buick Encore Preferred

The Encore has a nice ride and a lot of power. The gas mileage is awesome. The back up camera is such a nice feature. There aren't a lot of blind spots I don't think there are any. I never thought I would live a Buick, but car exceeded all my expectations.

- Christina T

Smooth ride, tons of safety features and extras that make the ride so much more enjoyable.

2018 Buick Encore

Love the stability on road, safety features, extras such as heated seats and wheel, seat memory, back up camera, satellite radio, comfort of ride. One con is it has several blind spots when backing up but the back up camera really helps alleviate these.

- Timothy C

good very cool very well cooler than cool

2018 Buick Encore Base

Buick encore is great for travel, although small seats they are comfortable. The gas mileage is good. It has no trouble getting up to speed it is effective with street racing. Very fast. Big trunk space , 5 seat, epic visuals top of the line stitching

- Jackson T

Small but spacious Buick Encore

2018 Buick Encore

I love my car! It's an SUV but it's not too bulky, so it allows for cargo space and extra passengers while still being easy to maneuver and park. The gas mileage is excellent, and the operating system conveniently alerts you when maintenance is needed.

- Sarah H

Buick encore review 2019!

2018 Buick Encore Base

This vehicle is very convenient. It is a little small but it has enough room for everything we have for weekend long trips and everyone. We have had no had problems with the vehicle yet. This vehicle is very reliable and it also has great gas mileage.

- Erin S

Easy and fun to drive. Get yours now.

2018 Buick Encore Base

This car is very quick and gets in and out of traffic and parking spots with ease. It does make a thumping noise when the windows are down, which is annoying, so I do not drive with the windows down. The car is plenty roomy for kids and their things.

- Kathy F

The smooth ride, Its comfortable on long trips.

- Bobbi S

I like the amount of gas mileage I am getting. Easy to fill up and drives great.

2018 Buick Encore

Perfect size. Comfortable seats. Easy to drive and easy to get in and out of. Interior is black and the large dash draws in lots of heat. Wish Buick made a dash cover for the Encore in a lighter color of beige like the seats

For me is the parking. The color is beautiful. I can pull into garage and still open backend with garage door closed.

It drives like a dream. So easy to park. Still has cargo room. Fits in my garage. Si I can close garage door and still unload.the smaller gas tank is the only inconvenience. Has all the latest technology.

- Kay R

It is easy to drive. I can see out of the car easily, and maneuver easily.

I like my Buick Encore for the most part. It is not a very luxurious car, though. The trunk area is small, and the passenger's seat doesn't recline. It does get good gas mileage and is very reliable.

Has a smooth ride. Comfortable to ride in. Love a car that has 4 doors.

- Kristy C

That it is the perfect size and very safe.

2018 Buick Encore

I was looking for a small SUV and my Buick encore is perfect. The only thing I do not like is I wish I wouldn't have bought black because it is shows dirt. Next time I would buy red.

- Tina H

It is not a gas saver. It is small enough for a 3 or 4.

2018 Buick Encore

The car is beautiful I just want a Mercedes at this time of my life. It is really not a gas saver as they say. I feel like it is a great truck for a small family of 3 or even 4.

I was always a fan of the Buick line. My last Buick got me home before it tragically broke down, so I trust my current one to be just as dependable. The only part I don't like was that I never wanted a van or SUV, so the choice I ended up with, and ended falling for was surprising.

It has the ability to take USB flash drives so one can upload any music of their choosing, and pick it whenever they want.

Trunk area is too small. To lay the seats flat you have to flip up the bottom seats in the back which make the space between the front seats and the back seats unusable for storage.
