Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2014 Buick Encore Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 122014

Encore 4-cyl

  • 425 miles


Instrument panel lighting in bright daylight, while wearing sunglasses, is insufficient. In order to read the speedometer either on the analog dial or on the small digital display while driving, requires the removal of the sunglasses, take your eyes off the road, and peer into the panel in order to read the speedometer. The gas and temperature gauges are not visible at all. Adjusting the intensity switch has no effect during daylight hours. This issue has been reported to the local Buick service department as well as Buick headquarters. They said they will inform the engineering department of this problem. This lighting issue was verified on other new Encore's in the dealers lot.
