New%20Buick%20SUV%20is%20NICE! by First time Buick owner on 02/02/2013. Trim: 2013 Buick Encore Leather FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Fit and finish is excellent. Very quiet ride. Lots of standard equipment. Handles really well.
Cons: Not underpowered but certainly not high powered...although gearing is very good. Trade-off is that MPG is very good. High 20's in town.
Overall review: Another good new product from Buick.
