Buick Encore: My Ice Storm SleighPublished by Toronto Mike on December 27, 2013 @ 15:29 in Automobile Test Drives, Buick Encore Test Drive
Little did I know last Friday, when I picked up a 2014 Buick Encore for a test drive, that it would be my ice storm sleigh. Appropriate for the season, it was red, and in some ultra slippery conditions, it got us where we needed to be without a problem.
Nature gave us ice which gave me a chance to test Buick's StabiliTrak® stability control system. It totally rocked, but with 10 airbags, I felt safe enough even if something did go wrong. 10 airbags is a lot.
I'll write more about this Buick Encore before I return it next week, but here's a fun shot of the rearview camera following the ice storm.
