I really liked the Buick Encore the first few days after I bought it. It was small, easy on gas and the exterior lines were different than anything else on the road. I researched and researched compact crossovers before I bought mine and decided to go with the Buick. The value for what you get vs price paid seemed to be right up my alley. While researching, I found out that the design was originally from overseas and had been out for a couple of years before being brought over to the US, which I liked. I thought the quality was going to be better than years past GM vehicles. The Encore does have nice styling and the features I care about at the time. Unfortunately, my Encore has had problem after problem. First, the second week of owning it, the windshield washer container began to leak. Then a month after that, the radio stated doing its own thing. Sometimes it would work, and sometimes it would not. Then I needed to replace the factory tires after only 20,000 miles. A few months after that, I had to replace the turbo cooler line gaskets, coolant, and battery. All within the vehicle being less than five years old.
I actually really enjoyed this car much to my surprise. My wife had originally bought it for herself, however it proved too big for her so I ended up with it. It has great options, good ride, was very comfortable and was a dream for long distance hauling of the family on road trips. It was easy to park for a big car, was fairly powerful and had lots of nice technology.
