• Hint: Use a descriptive title for your new message
    If you're looking for help and want to draw people in who can assist you, use a descriptive subject title when posting your message. In other words, "2008 LaCrosse" isn't going to indicate to anybody that you need help. However, "Need help with my 2008 LaCrosse" will. Be as descriptive as you can. Please use common sense...

  1. PSI monitor showing measurement for wrong tire

    Hi, pardon my inarticulate description. I'm hoping someone can enlighten me so I understand what's going on. The tire pressure monitor was showing that my left front tire was getting progressively low. Despite putting in air, it was only showing a PSI of 15. Went to the tire store today, and...
  2. jealous of the 2015 backup camera

    I have a 2014 Encore, and I almost didn't buy it because the backup camera seemed to be so crappy. Where were the lines? Turns out that the tilted mirrors help out tremendously with parking because I can visualize my tires, so it's OK. I drove a 2015 rental recently, and I was blown away by...

  5. Caring for your Encore, interior and exterior--what do you use?

    Hi, I've never had a car nice enough to care about this stuff, but I want to keep my Encore beautiful. Can anyone give me some suggestions about how they clean the leather? What brand do you use? What about the dashboard? And if you wash and wax your own car, can you recommend brands? The...
  6. New owner needs help figuring out who iPhone/Siri works with voice navigation

    Hi all, I've owned my adorable 2104 Encore Premium for 3 weeks now. I'm really happy, and I think I have "configed" the bejesus out of it. I'm still looking for the button that makes espresso. :o What I can't figure out is how to control the interaction of my iPhone/Siri with the voice...
  7. Potential Encore buyer here in need of some advice and input

    Hi everyone, Background: The Encore Premium is being considered along with a few other crossover SUV's (RAV4, Ford Escape, Nissan Rogue) because of the new safety features (Blind Spot Alert, Cross-Traffic Alert, etc) which are a necessity due to medical issues.
