  • Encore GX - Great with Some Issues

    By gsl on Tuesday, March 17, 2020

    I've owned the GX for about 3 weeks now-700 miles so far. There's lots to like but there but there are some weaknesses to be addressed. Strengths: Comfortable, Strong Acceleration, Great looks, Regular gas, Roomy back seat for a subcompact SUV., Great safety features, Excellent native navi system , Smooth shifting transmission; Bright headlights. Concerns/Issues: City MPG is only about 24 mpg...so far; Infotainment system will not receive/play text messages on Android phones (tried a Pixel 3a and Galaxy S10) - Dealer acknowledges the issue. you can only see texts thru Android Auto if phone is connected by USB; Lane departure warning doesn't work at speeds below 37-38 mph - dealer acknowledges this is an issue. This is a safety concern!; No padding in the door pockets-annoying as things slide around; No air vent in the rear seat area. Some other thoughts - handling is secure but not as "tight" as the Mazda CX30 which I test drove. You can turn off the start/stop feature though it’s unobtrusive to me. Would have been nice if there was an auto-hold feature. You can also shut off the AWD. The instrument cluster is awkward. Lots of scrolling if you want to monitor things like MPG, range, speed limits-they're all on different screens. Overall I'm pleased but I do expect Buick to address the texting and lane departure warning issues. Dealer is "researching" issues since this such a new model.
