A totally wonderful experience! We drove over 250 miles to look at a van with a good price. The salesman assured me they would not sell it before we test drove it. Other dealers I had contacted would not give me this guarantee. The van was ready to go as we arrived. We had tight time restraints to look at the van, make a decision, and get back home. When I saw a full tank of gas , I said to myself, one less stop and home earlier. It made an impression to say the least. The staff was friendly and helpful. They returned phone calls promptly. To be honest, they treated us like family. In the future, Dove Auto
will be our one stop, only stop, car store!!!
A great little subcompact SUV

This is the first Buick I've ever owned -- the 2017 Encore had a bit of a refresh in styling from the year before, both in its exterior and interior -- best was the interior refresh. The touch screen is now integrated into the dash -- no "stand up" screen as before. I have the next to highest trim level, the Essence -- dual zone HVAC controls for the front seat passenger and driver, and leather interior. Great gas mileage -- the turbo charged four cylinder does a good job -- a bit louder engine sounds than a six cylinder. Overall, a great little car.
We have been going to Side Dillon for years. They are the best dealership around. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of all the offers available.
Rebuilt engine and new brakes required 11,000 mile

Gravely disappointed in the Buick Encore. In for repairs twice in the last month. First time rebuilt engine and replaced rear brakes, two weeks later, replaced rear brakes again. Went back to the dealership and he priced the buy back at 50 cents on the dollar. This for a year old car with less than 12,000 miles. Bad deal.
Today I walked in and was greeted by Mike at the front desk. He was really helpful, and walked me through the approval process which i have no experience with. He was really friendly and answered all of my questions. I left with a new car about an hour later. Im kind of in shock at how well this went. It was quick, easy and he was really friendly. Thank you Mike!!
So far, so good.

This is the first SUV I've owned and I love it! The smaller size makes it easy for me to zip in and out of parking spaces and it is easy to handle. I've taken it on road trips and it performed very well.
Excellent service, helpful couldn't ask for anything more.

Got a great price on a Buick Encore and so far everything has been great. The ride is very smooth and it fits my family of four perfectly. The infotainment system has been excellent and the WiFi has brought fortnite into the car so the kids are happy.
