  1. Oil Change

    I decided to add some pictures to the original DIY Oil Change thread because they seem to be missing. The original thread is here: DIY Oil Change It has lots of good information on doing the oil change. And it was one of the easiest oil changes I've done in a while, and you can do the whole...
  2. It that time of year again...

    So I thought I'd bring this thread to the top again for those wanting a second set of snows: http://buickforums.com/forums/threads/34140-Winter-Rim-Tire-Setup
  3. Factory antenna question

    Has anyone replaced their goofy, non retractable factory antenna with something like a shark fin antenna, or something that retracts and still works with XM radio? I've already had to replace mine once. I have to keep unscrewing my antenna and storing it in the glove box. When I go into the...
  4. Ambient Lighting Kit

    I noticed today at the Buick.com site, under accessories for the Encore, the new Ambient Lighting Kit (#95410825). I want it. But then I noticed it's only available for the 2015. Does anyone have any idea why a dealer installed accessory would only be for the '15, and not the '13 or '14...
  5. Easy Exit Drivers Seat

    My drivers seat stopped moving back when I removed the key and opened the door, and it had me stumped. After locking the car with the remote, and turning on and turning off the setting in the computer, nothing was working. It just didn't move back anymore. Then I noticed I had left the...
  6. Best OnStar rates ?

    I haven't done yet, and my OnStar has been expired for some time now, but what is the best renewal rate everyone has got for OnStar? I really like the handsfree calling, so I can't believe they haven't even called me to renew.
  7. Auto climate control mileage boost

    I found out today after running a one week test, that if you keep your climate control in the "auto" setting, with the blue light on in the center of the switch, your air conditioning compressor runs all the time, even when it's cool out and the system is blowing heat. That dropped my overall...
  8. Vanity Mirror LED upgrade

    Neither one of us liked the yellow color of the sun visor vanity mirror, so I went on a search for a whiter, brighter LED upgrade. The first thing I found was that the Encore uses those goofy little 3AG festoon bulbs from the factory, and the last time I saw those was in my 70's era Marantz...
  9. Chinese Encore

    Here's something interesting I came across today. Seems the Encore is a big seller in China. No wonder there is so many aftermarket parts on ebay from China. I really like the running boards. http://media.gm.com/media/cn/en/gm/news.detail.html/content/Pages/news/cn/en/2014/June/0606_encore.html
  10. Trunk Light Upgrade

    I didn't like the light in the trunk, so I went on a search for a LED upgrade mod. The problem with this light is that it was so small and there is not much available in the way of LED bulbs. Not much in the US anyway. All the LED bulbs places I checked, that I know of, I came up empty. So...
  11. Workshop Manuals

    Does anyone know where to get the factory workshop manual. I'm a tinkerer, and would love to know the inner workings of my new Encore. I don't plan on working on it for years, that's the dealers job. But it would be nice to know.
