"My 2014 Encore Leather Model has less than 15,000 miles on the odometer and has an oil leak near the rear of the oil pan on the front passenger side of the vehicle.
The dealer acknowledged the presence of the fluid, however they have chosen to refer to it as "seepage" and not a leak with no action (ie. warranty repair) offered.
I will not keep this Encore beyond the expiration of the warranty as I will not pay for the repair of the leak."
"This is the first new car I've bought in over 25 years, so I shopped for value and reliability! So far, this car has exceeded my high expectations in every category, and even exceeds the EPA gas mileage estimates: I routinely get 32 miles per gallon in this beauty!"
Pros: "Fun to Drive, Luxurious, Little Road Noise"
Cons: "Trunk Space Passenger arm rest"

"We just got back from our 1st 600 mile road trip with the
new 2013 Buick Encore.....and love the vehicle.
The handling is fantastic, it is roomy and comfortable.
Very little road noise, was doing 87 MPH and didn't realize it. Suspension is good, ride is fantastic. Mileage was
wonderful. I like the vehicle more now than I did
when we purchased it. My only complaint....could use
a bit more trunk. Can't fit golf clubs but....can fit
luggage. Also...the driver has a arm rest but the
front right seat doesn't. It would be nice if both
had arm rests that fold up and down. I was worried about
pick up and passing (due to Car and Driver review) - don't worry about it....it did fantastic. I don't know why Car and Driver said that in the review....more like they pick on American Made Vehicles.....I was flying by
people while passing and our car was loaded."
"I loved everything about my beautiful little Encore before this past weekend and now I love it even more! We were involved in an accident that totaled the car - the front end was completely destroyed but the passenger compartment remained solidly intact and we came out with just bruises from the airbags and seat belts. The car did everything it was supposed to to protect us. I'll be heading back to Buick to get another Encore just like the one I had!"
