    Thanks for the commentary about your wife's Encore GX, longislander! Are y'all getting 30 mpg or better with the new Buick?

    The name is unfortunate. GX makes it seem like a trim level

    The Redline Review guy has posted a video of the GX, he seems to like it quite a bit including 1.3T/CVT combo. In fact from the video the CVT seems fine (normally I don't like 'em).

    Current ride: 2015 Chevy Sonic 1.8L 5sp manual sedan
    Previous ride: 1998 Subaru Legacy Wagon AWD 2.2L 5sp manual
    Next ride, pre-pandemic: Maybe a 2021 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD
    Next ride, post-pandemic: Keep driving the Sonic!

    A neighbor has a white GX sport and it surprised me by how "big" it is in relation to the Encore. Looks very very good though. I really like it.

    Slow getting up to highway speeds. All around seems like a decent vehicle, let down by torque steer and a lack of power.

    I can't take Buick serious. Dropping that engine in a "premium" brand??? I don't care how smooth it is. A 3 cylinder? Everything else (including it's looks) I love.

    Oh, and Redline dude is NOT a review we rely on. This has NOTHING to do with my personal beef with him either.
