Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.545454545454546 reviews) This car has been nothing but trouble for me, within a month the battery died. Then, it was in the shop for three weeks while their was a national recall on the Buick Encore’s catalytic converter. They replaced with a whole new one, thank God there was still a warranty. CarMax was awesome at referring me to a great place to get my car fixed, however. Now, I’ve had the Buick Encore back for three weeks and the check engine light is on again and once again the code was the oxygen sensor for emissions which just got replaced. I’m unsure if I even want this car anymore as it’s been nothing but unreliable. The fuel economy is awful as well. I’m constantly needing to get gas four or more times per week.

I do have a problem with the car only having 54k and a check engine light is on. Took to dealer and was told that several vehicles of my model were having the same problem and they didn’t know why. Advised me to drive until the light starts blinking. They also told me it was some type of lean code. This was highly disappointing for such a newer model vehicle. Now I drive waiting to be stranded somewhere. I will get a different vehicle soon.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.6 reviews) This mini suv is very stylish, smooth and fun to drive. The driver and passenger seats have good leg room and are quite comfortable. However, I'm coming from a Honda Odyssey, so the back seat feels a little cramped for 3 adults to sit in. Also, there are blind spots on the side and rear, so you need to be extra cautious when making a turn. The only item I really miss is a passenger side arm rest, but all in all, I am very pleased with my purchase!

About The Buick Encore

Vehicle Summary

The Buick Encore is one of the pioneers of the subcompact-crossover craze; it's essentially a miniature SUV for consumers that don't require a full-sized version—but that doesn't mean the brand has made any compromises. There are now two powertrain options (a more powerful 1.4L direct fuel injection engine was added in 2017), available all-wheel drive, and enough room for you and four passengers. 

Introduced in 2013, the Encore is still in its first generation and is quite well equipped. In 2017 and newer models, the Encore sports features like OnStar® concierge service, 4G LTE connectivity with built-in WiFi hotspot (subscription required), 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, and even more features, depending on the trim level. Also, a backup camera and 10 airbags come as standard.

Possible Problems

The car fit my needs well and I have not problem with how it rides, handles, accessories and power. I do have a problem with the car only having 54k and a check engine light is on. Took to dealer and was told that several vehicles of my model were having the same problem and they didn’t know why. Advised me to drive until the light starts blinking. They also told me it was some type of lean code. This was highly disappointing for such a newer model vehicle. Now I drive waiting to be stranded somewhere. I will get a different vehicle soon.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Good gas mileage
  • Technology and Entertainment: Easy to use
  • Cabin Noise: Quite ride

Cons

  • Ride and Handling: Tight steering, can be a bit jerky
  • Reliability: At just 54k a check engine light is on
  • Seat Comfort: No passenger arm rest

- L Foster, 2017 Buick Encore

Good gas mileage, peppy and nice to drive

This mini suv is very stylish, smooth and fun to drive. The driver and passenger seats have good leg room and are quite comfortable. However, I'm coming from a Honda Odyssey, so the back seat feels a little cramped for 3 adults to sit in. Also, there are blind spots on the side and rear, so you need to be extra cautious when making a turn. The only item I really miss is a passenger side arm rest, but all in all, I am very pleased with my purchase!

Pros

- Mary Brown, 2013 Buick Encore

Check Engine light on constantly

This car has been nothing but trouble for me, within a month the battery died. Then, it was in the shop for three weeks while their was a national recall on the Buick Encore’s catalytic converter. They replaced with a whole new one, thank God there was still a warranty. CarMax was awesome at referring me to a great place to get my car fixed, however. Now, I’ve had the Buick Encore back for three weeks and the check engine light is on again and once again the code was the oxygen sensor for emissions which just got replaced. I’m unsure if I even want this car anymore as it’s been nothing but unreliable. The fuel economy is awful as well. I’m constantly needing to get gas four or more times per week.

Pros

  • Seat Comfort: Leather and heated seats
  • Technology and Entertainment: Great stereo
  • Braking: So far so good

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: Horrible
  • Cost to Maintain: New battery and catalytic convertor needed plus new issue with oxygen sensor
  • Reliability: Terrible, I’ve barely gotten to drive the car because the check engine light keeps coming on
