What Owners Say
“Since Day 1, I have told the dealer that the back-up camera is the WORST I have every seen....It looks like a blurry haze most of the time.....Almost like I'm in a dust storm!....washed out and BAD!....They take a little rag and say it must be dust on the camera...I am FUSSY with my cars and it has NO Dust and after they do their FAKE WIPEOFF, it is NO different....Buick needs to pick up the pace on electronics....EVERY OTHER CAR I'VE HAD has great backup cameras....Even the cheaper foreign cars”Anonymous, OR (2016 Buick Encore None 1.4-L 4 Cyl turbo)
“The in-dash screen has very poor contrast. In daylight you can barely see the area behind vehicle. At night you can not clearly see objects. The backup light are not very bright but if they were bright like my pickup you would still have a problem because of the poor contrast. Took car into to dealer, the second time we complained about the contrast they changed out the camera but still lacks the contract needed”Anonymous, TX (2016 Buick Encore None 1.4-L 4 Cyl turbo)
“Screen sometimes doesn't light up or goes dark while driving or when starting”Anonymous, AZ (2016 Buick Encore None 1.4-L 4 Cyl turbo)
