Hi,
Does anyone know if Buick increased the size of the armrest on the Encore over the past couple years? I recall reading somewhere that they changed it but I can't remember the year. The issue I'm having is I purchased seat covers for the front and the armrest cover I received is too small...by about 1.5".
I sent the company pictures and they sent me the same short cover again. I think it would help my case if I could explain if/when the design change occurred as I believe they are sending me a cover designed for an earlier model instead of my 2018.
Thanks in advance.

Can any 2016 or prior Encore owners do me a favor and measure your armrest length and kindly let me know what you find?
Much appreciated.

For what it's worth the part numbers for the seat armrest are completely different in 2016 versus 2018

Thanks Mel. Hopefully a 2016 or earlier owner will take a measurement for me and chime in.
Thanks again.

There is an after market "NORMAL " armrest I found that fits perfect, not from GM like it should have been though. I was so excited! My husband installed it & now the cars more comfortable.

I was just in at the dealer and checked out a new Encore in the showroom - the armrest really doesn't seem much different compared to my 2013.

Maybe get used to not having an arm rest? I have never used mine in the Encore or my previous car though it might be nice on a long highway trip.

Do not buy the armrest for the Opel Mokka thats made in Italy, out of the box it doesn't fit my 2019 Encore. I may be able to fit it with some bending of the metal bracket, even so it is not worth the money I paid for it. Save your money and time just suck it up and live with the poor excuse for an armrest.
