I thought that review was highly positive - almost reads as if it were written by the Buick Encore Marketing Staff. My personal preference would be to forgo all the luxury and opt for more car for the money - e.g maybe the Mazda CX5 or even a Chevy Equinox. If a 4 wheel drive is essential, then maybe a Subaru.kostby wrote:'First Drive' Review of the Buick Encore, Buick's version of the Chevy Sonic, without the lower price.

Appears to be unfortunate proof that 'New GM' learned absolutely nothing from 'Old GM' and the NUMMI experiment.

When I was at the 2013 Auto Show, I saw the Encore on display (yet for some reason it wasn't available to enter, unless I missed it). It looks so narrow and tall compared to the Vibe - is it just me?
The Trax looks pretty cool but has the same issue (as they are based off of the same design). I dunno how good the handling will be on these with the tight fast turns. The Vibe has the "racing inspired suspension" and seems to be a little bit wider but still slightly top heavy.
Those mirrors are just asking "someone please hit me" and will be easy targets. Not the best design for door rear-view mirrorslannvouivre wrote:I saw one in person the other day. Definitely more attractive up close.
Now I feel sad every time I see the picture with those mirrors, thanks to you! Thought it looked so good (although elderly) up until you pointed that out!tpollauf wrote:Those mirrors are just asking "someone please hit me" and will be easy targets. Not the best design for door rear-view mirrors
