The radio reset on its own from time to time. It loses connection to the internet and you'd have to turn the car off and on for it to work again. Also my instrument panel has reset on me about 2 times. The recall I went in for was for the radio head unit itself but I went 3 times and its still...
It only works with usb thumb drives to my knowledge. If you connect your phone to it you can play music through the apple/android car play. If its a regular MP3 player...I highly doubt it'll work if the car doesn't recognize it.
They're great cars. I feel like the 2019 is the perfected one lol. I have a 2017 Encore Essence AWD (with the 153hp engine) and the only issue I've had was with my radio catching the internet. Other than that it's a great car. My only suggestions is to make sure you have good tires on it because...
It might be a recall that the dealer hasn't checked yet. some of the Encores (most 2017 models) have issues like this. I've had radio issues with mine so I understand the frustration. have them check deeper into it because it can be a recall that's rare.
Never had that issues happen before. Sounds like there's more going on than what it looks like.
It could be that the motors seize in the cold and freeze up. I would honestly use the remote start when its cold and let the car warm up and see if that's the issue. Most of the cars systems are...
Agreed. Most of the cars parts are outsourced. I would keeping fighting till it gets fixed properly or like said in previous post. Complain to GM till they get tired of it and give you something better
The data plan is a monthly subscription and also the 2017s are all having issues with the internet and radio. just an FYI. I've had the same issues with my Encore as well. 2018s and up that problem was corrected with a new radio that GM installed
If you're putting just regular bulbs then you can do it without takin off the lamp but if you're putting LEDs then I would recommend taking off the lamp. I had the LEDs fall into the lamp and it was a pain to take them out and use electrical tape to keep them in place.
Also because you bought the car. I would recommend get an Optima Battery. It is a bit expensive but you'll never have a problem. They're gel filled instead of acid filled so it'll definitely last longer.
As for the keys they may of deprogrammed. I've seen it happen on a few different cars.
Agreed. Thats why I got it because I know rarely does anyone have it. I do wish that GM would've made it with the option of a 2.0 turbo AWD. Just like the Caddy XT4.
Also get the option to get the Diesel engine just like the Opel Mokka. That would've been AMAZING :love:
