  1. Leaking roof rails 2018 Encore

    I have I recently discovered water leaking into my back seat. The dealership looked at it and said my roof had warped/dented and was causing a space between the roof and the roof rails. They were unable to do anything about it and referred me to a body shop to (1) remove roof rail, (2) pull out...

  4. 2015 Buick Encore - Trailer Wiring Harness

    I am trying to tow a Uhaul 5x8 trailer and am installing a hitch. There is a flat 4 connector by the spare tire in the trunk, can that be used to run the trailer lights or do I need to install a wiring harness as well? If I do, does anyone know what wires are used for the L/R rear turn signals...

    Buick Encore LUV Engine Performance Thread

    Hello, let's talk about engine performance mods for the LUV engine. These motors have a lot of potential left on the table and I intend to unleash it. Have you modded yours?

  7. Remove 2018 Encore armrest?

    Is it possible to remove the Encore armrest? Will it leave areas looking damaged? I saw the conversation about removing and replacing with a wider armrest, but in my case I just want it gone. To explain why: my dog always rides in the back, but likes to come up front while I run errands. I...
  8. 2013 Encore transmission drain and fill

    This is a "sealed" transmission. The drain plug is located above an oblong cut-out in the splash guard. It's a 7/16 and not your typical looking drain plug and should be torqued to spec. when put back in (12 ft.lbs. I believe). Loosen the plug and drain into a pan and then transfer it into...
  9. Stock PSI - 2015 Buick Encore

    Hello All, First and foremost, posting this for a friend. He described some issues to me and it sounds like he's having underboost problems in his encore. He said it's a 2015 Buick Encore with a 1.4L turbo in it. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what the peak Boost PSI should be for a...
  10. Center chrome trim around radio and climate part name

    Hello! The chrome trimming around the radio and clime controls on my Encore has started flaking/cracking. I've been looking for a replacement bezel and I'm horrified by the fact the only way that trimming seems to be available is with an entire dashboard. For reference: I'm talking about...
  11. 2014 encore rim offset.

    Hello everyone. Brand new here to the forum, hope I’m doing this right. I found a set of rims that seem to fit my 2014 AWD encore. But the offset seems to be more than the recommended size. I don’t know enough to safely decide with certainty. Could I use them without damaging anything? They...
  12. 2014 Buick Encore shaking is "normal"?

    I have a 2014 Encore that I purchased new. For the past 20k or so miles, the vehicle will sporadically and violently shake when in drive and stopped with the foot brake. I had the PI0928A service bulletin completed in Feb 2016 that addresses this issue specifically but am still having the...
  13. Encore Touring.... finally!

    I just want to share my happiness with everyone here. Today I went to a dealer with my old Chrysler... and went back home 3 hours later with a brand new Encore Touring. I chose the 2016 model for 2 reasons: a more favorable price and what I think it's better look (I am talking about the front...

  16. Battery Upgrade

    My wife's Encore battery decided to kick the bucket, when I went to replace it, I noticed that the tray is way bigger than the battery and that it would be pretty easy to upgrade it. I wasn't sure that their would be a battery available that fit the larger area, but sure enough there is. The...

  18. Front Collision Avoidance Alert Encore 2015 (early unit)

    I bought a new (but on a dealer lot since manufacture in 12/14) 2015 Encore, loaded. I like almost everything. But the front collision avoidance system does not seem to work. I set it for the most-distant detection. It detects the car in front of me when I'm over 25 mph, and the green car icon...
  19. Buick Encore or Honda HRV

    I'm very undecided. Encore: much better looking car, especially the front grill and the interior. The dashboard of the Honda is painful to look at, there's no comparison. HRV: 10 % better mileage and a MSRP that is $ 3K or $ 4K lower than the Encore. Encore, made in South Korea, and apparently...
  20. 1st Warranty Repair. (radio)

    Sorry for being away from the site so long. Had my "baby" Buick in the shop recently for a bad radio. When I first started driving my new Encore I noticed the radio would cut out like a skipping CD. It would happen sporadically, as most car troubles do. I chucked it up to indexing of files or...
