"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!"
Cons: "Some think it is too small, need to drive it."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have yet to find a car that is perfect and will usually change what ever to my liking. Well I think I found it and it only took a couple of thousand miles! Coming from Sport Cars and Sport Sedans the Enocre will satisfy all your corner carving desires and has braking capacity to send your occupants forward onto their seat belts. Quiet, quiet, quiet too! The fuel economy that beats all but economy cars with almost 40 mpg on the highway....and that is with all-wheel drive. The BuickForums are backing this up as owners put some more miles on. Which puts at the most efficient AWD, gasoline you can buy. Super comfortable as we just put eight 8-10 hours days shopping for houses, turning around in parking lots and people's driveway the size make the perfect companion in a squeeze."
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!"
