Great and Economical!

I have had this car since 2017. This is the first car ever that I have owned, I like the fact that it is simply economical and efficient around the city. The only thing I have done is that the engine has something wrong with it very now and then. But overall it's the best car I drive. I would recommend this as your first car because its economical.

The car runs really good. I've been to a few state

Car has been good have had it for a couple of years but Now both doors on passenger side will either lock or they won't. And I feel like that's a problem.

Worst vehicle ever

Worst car I ever owned. Had a bunch of warranty work done before that expired but thank god I purchased an extended bumper to bumper warranty. From day one I felt there was something wrong as it felt like it had no power going up hills. We broke down out of state. Had to replace the turbocharger 2 times within a year. I’ve replaced the calipers twice already and I’m under 100,000 miles. Had antifreeze leak 3 times in one year. Every few months it’s something new. Don’t buy this car!

Seriously. Don’t Buy This Car, Huge Money Pit

Buy at your own risk. It’s cute and spacious with good gas mileage but it car seems to top out at around 65,000 miles before literally everything wears out, including sensors that will not allow you to turn your car on. I cannot count the number of times I’ve been stranded (5+) bc this car will not turn on.

Ours didn't even last 50,000 miles

So where to start, this model is a blight on suvs everywhere. So before 50,000 miles, trouble started shortly after 40,000 miles, had to replace the turbo charge, if it would not have been under warranty it would have cost 1500.00 US, the rear brakes for everything because they just fell apart 1100.00, intake manifold 700.00, the last two in the same week. All three with in the same month, so think ok it is all good, nope it has overheated on the highway. You would be better off walking, avoid these lemons.

Not worth the money

Really feels driving a toy car. Kind of expensive for what it was. I traded up for a larger crossover and it’s a completely different feel. Inside was pretty basic for semi-lux vehicle. Not worth the money in my opinion. I’d rather pay 5k more for a more upscale feel and to move forward when I hit the accelerator. Additionally, as soon as my warranty expired, all types of things started to go wrong. Almost immediately! Sell now before you can’t!

Wonderful car!

Great car! Quiet and smooth. Bought a 2017 Sport Touring in 2020. No problems so far. Looks beautiful too. Best buy ever! Thank you Buick!

Bought a car I really wasn’t sure of

Bought a car I really wasn’t sure of. I tried to return it the very next day and I was told no. I was told in the state of Missouri you can’t return cars that seems like a bunch of bull. I will definitely use Carfax her car van in the future and never go to a dealership which I shouldn’t of from the beginning
