  1. Battery dies, radio goes in and out

    My 2014 Premium just started doing that. They had it three days, replaced the battery etc. and said it was fixed. It started doing it again. It was towed to the dealer yesterday. It has less that 15,000 miles on it. If they can't fix it this time, I am trading it off. Up until it started doing...
  2. Anyone know if the fake hood vents are removable?

    Initially BUICK had one port for each cylinder in the engine. I recall one of my Dad's had 4 ports on each side. It was a V 8. Now. I believe the Encore ports are glued on and are for decoration only. After 2014, which I have, the newer Encores do not have ports.
  3. Wipers

    Has anyone had to replace their wiper blades yet? My 2014 has low mileage, stays in the garage most of the time, yet the wipers are not working properly. Replacements are only $ 20. I think they need replacing as they do not wipe completely as they should and it is dangerous driving in rain...
  4. Survey on Encore

    A national well known company sent me $ 1 to complete a survey on my experience with my 2014 Premium Encore. It should have been $ 25. After 30 minutes I still wasn't done, and gave up. They got their dollars worth. The only negative things I mentioned were the poor headlights, squeaky brakes...
  5. Latest Issue Buick Magazine

    I got the latest issue of the Buick magazine, with the Envista on the front. Inside an article about all the goodies this lovely SUV will have on it. My wife knows me well, and the first thing she said is we need to talk about this BEFORE you do anything, lol. I have to see one, sit in it, etc...
  6. Envision

    Envision, sorry.
  7. Brighter Bulbs Headlight & Foglights

    I am using Silverstar Ultra bulbs in the low beam headlights & fog lights. It greatly improves the poor lights on this vehicle. I love my Encore Premium, except for the front lights. I wish they had used reflector type lights.
  8. I know why they changed this but........

    I know the reasoning behind the changes to this forum, it makes sense but I don't like changes.
  9. Should Buick rebrand as Vauxhall in America?

    Buicks have no style, that is BS. I vividly recall the evening Dad came home in his new fawn color Electra 225. It was a beautiful car. He traded every 3 years, but this one was so nice he sold it to my uncle. The next one, a 1963 tan color, was not near as captivating as that Electra 225. I...
  10. Should Buick rebrand as Vauxhall in America?

    NO. I love Buicks, my Dad always drove them. Now I drive my fourth one. I love my Encore. When it comes time for my wife's new car perhaps a Buick instead of a Malibu.
  11. Chevrolet TRAX Compared To Encore

    I took my 2014 premium Encore in for the first oil change Thursday. I found out that oil changes are free for the first two years or 24,000 miles. While there I looked at the new Chevy Trax, which is their copy of the Encore. The only thing I liked about it is the reflector headlights. I hate...
  12. LED Bulbs for exterior and interior

    I saw some red led bulbs at Walmart today. There was an LED thread a long time ago on here, and I can't recall if anyone could tell me if an led replacement bulb for the tail light has the required (?) resistor built in to the bulb? If so I would like to replace the tail light bulbs, perhaps the...
  13. Why so many ports?

    My Dad drove Buicks from the time I was born, until the time he passed away. On every Buick he owned there was one port for each cylinder in the engine. I just looked at a photo of our 1963 Buick Wildcat, it had a big V 8 engine. There were 4 ports on each side. My Encore has a 4 cylinder...
  14. Fuel Guage Problem?

    Does anyone know if the 2014 Encore is involved in the fuel guage recall?
  15. Automatic seat program

    Is anyone having problems with the program that backs the seat all the way so you can get out easier, and brings it back to your # 1 memory position when you get back in and close the door? Sometimes it works on my Premium Encore and sometimes it doesn't. Once today the seat was back, as it...
  16. Vauxhall Opel/Mokka Forum

    I joined the Mokka owner's forum, and am finding out a lot about a close relative of the Encore. There are differences, but the two cars are a lot alike. One Mokka owner says the 1.6cc engine is too small. Another doesn't like the mirrors folding in when he cuts off the engine. To me this is...
