The reason for purchasing this car was it is high up like an SUV but smaller and more fuel efficient. I feel safer driving on the freeway every day. It runs very smoothly and the soundproofing inside the car makes for a very quiet and peaceful drive and it has a great sound system. It also has enough room in the back for transporting equipment. I am very pleased with it.
I found the vehicle I wanted on their website, called Monday morning and spoke with Tom Krcha who was friendly and determined to get me the vehicle. I was worried about financing due to past credit history but, Tom made it happen, I was signing papers Tuesday afternoon. Steve Domonkos was fast and pressure free with signing all the paperwork. I would definitely recommend Bud's Auto Sales to family and friends.

Great car so far, I thought it was for older people but more of a younger vibe to me. Rides great, no outside road noise, comfy and love the handling.
This was the most hassle-free car purchase that I have ever experienced. I had called first to make sure that the car was still available and when I arrived they had the car parked out front and ready for a test drive. My trade-in price was agreed upon and we had the paperwork completed in just about an hour. The whole staff was great the day of my sale...Tom was friendly & efficient w/the sale, and Aaron quickly located an SD card for the navigation so I wouldn't have to wait for a replacement to be mailed to me, and the finance paperwork was completed in record time as well. After getting home I noticed that the mirror was broken on the driver side visor. I called Bud's and was directed to Wally in service who took my information, ordered a new visor and even made arrangements for my visor to be replaced at the Shelocta location which is much closer to my home. Great service before, during and after the sale. I am a very happy customer. Thanks, guys!

I’ve driven larger trucks for the past decade. I found this vehicle online. It caught my eye. Went for a test drive and had to buy it.
I recently purchased a 2015 Nissan Rogue at Hollern and sons. I found a car on their website and then I stopped in and talked to Joe Walters and he showed me the car and answered all of my questions. Joe suggested we take the car for a test drive. Joe was very informative and I purchased the car. Also Brian and Keith Hollern assisted in the sale and all 3 gentlemen were very professional and made the sale stress free and enjoyable! Thanks again Joe, Brian and Keith!
It is worth its weight in gold.

This car is great on gas interior is nice could be a little more classy. After all it’s a Buick. This vehicle is great on the road handles very well. I love it..
Walked in with NO appointment, was greeted by Ralph Jones, Told him the vehicle I was interested and he went out to bring it down for us. While on thest drove, he worked up our trade in and was ready tp talk numbers when we got back. He worked well with all of our questions and money down questions. We also worked with Eric Smith and he was very nice to deal with on the final paperwork and extended warranty options I was interested in. I WILL recommend Bud's Auto Sales. I would try their service dept but I live 2 hours away.
Love my new Buick

This new SUV is amazing. I had my KIA sportage 2000 for 18 years and love it. I did not want to trade it in until I test drove the Buick. I love this SUV, it drives nice, looks nice, and it was the right size for me to make the decision to get a new car!
Tom and Steve were courteous and cordial. Good selection of vehicles in the category I was interested in purchasing. Price was reasonable. Future interaction will shape my final review. But, at least at this point, it has been a decent buying experience.
worst car in 20 years

This car looks nice from the outside, but in the first 20000 miles it has been in the shop 3 times, not charging, coolant leak, brake shift interlock solenoid failure. It is way under powered, and the engine has a tick in it at 25,000 miles. This car is a piece of ....
I was looking for a specific vehicle and contacted several dealerships. Thomas Honda via Rich Berkey was THE ONLY dealer who was responsive to my search for a used vehicle. Rich was an absolute pleasure, he explained everything very thoroughly, kept in constant contact, and followed up with me every step of the way. All the staff were very friendly. They were very transparent about costs, fees, taxes etc...no jumping through hoops to get a good price and the whole experience was stress free.

Great value car that is very versatile

Best value car in its class, lots of storage, great mileage, some weird interior styling choices but feels nice overall. Definitely the best small SUV on the market you can get barely used under 20k right now.
If you are looking to buy a vehicle you need to come See Jeff Wood and his staff. They are great people.There is no pressure sales also they will do what ever it take to meet your needs. I know because I just purchased my third vehicle there. So do not hesitate to go down to Wood Chevrolet!!!

So far love my like new 2015 ! I went from a V6 Ford Escape to the Buick Encore and it has a lot more power than I thought it would. Little worried with sun roof leaking in car wash .
Although it looks small from the outside, the inside feels roomy. It has plenty of get up and go. There is plenty of cargo space and back legroom is good for such a small car. Very comfortable and I love all the bells and whistles.
Justin Roberts was very accomodating and helpful .

My experience in shopping for a used car was handled with the utmost personal care. Justin took his time in helping me make an informed decision and to be sure of my choice. He took his time in answering my questions and fulfilling my requests in the purchasing process. I am grateful for all that was done!
Just Purchased, so far great small sub.

Nice Car, But...
by David from Lancaster, PA

Overall, my Buick encore all wheel drive is a nice ride. However, my general experience with the auto stop technology is not good. Within two years, the auto stop feature caused my brand new battery to die, leaving me stranded On a major roadway in the middle of rush hour. My personal opinion is that the auto stop feature is pointless and I will never buy another car with auto stop. Hey on a major roadway in the middle of rush hour.
