Is the Envision worth it?

Is it worth it to buy an Envision? Reading about all the issues on here, I'm very hesitant to purchase one, even at the prices that are being currently offered. Is there anything good about the car that makes it worth 30k, and not buy something else instead? Do you recommend staying away from the Envision and buying a different vehicle?

Glad to hear that and it should restore confidence in those that once doubted GM vehicles. Buick is one of the brands that could really pull through and so far it seem that could be the case with a lot of predecessors, now it seems they are just warming up.

its all about style, feel and self preference with any car. Buick has great build quality these days, I have had a few buick since 2012. I did not drive every suv out there but check the options/price across the lines. Some SUV styles just turned me off and some it was the cabin design. I have had my Envision for 13 months and 18k miles. No real complaints
speed bumps can knock you around some but other than that my 28.2 average gas, and how all the bells/whisles work it just all seems to work. Its not a 50-60k suv but the overall drive and quietness are great. And a software update fixed the dash dimming feature. Not really sure how the original setting got out the door. PS the leather seats are super supportive and comfortable.

If the Envision's pricing is a concern, there are sales and incentives throughout the year. Not quite sure which country this is applicable to, but GM Authority says Buick is running an offer for the 2017 Buick Envision this month.

$5,800 Bonus Cash + $750 Customer Cash = $6,550 Total Cash Allowance.

I have owned my fully loaded Premium II for 14 months and I love everything about it. Was it worth it? It was. Its brought me right across Canada and down to mid States - super comfy luxurious ride. Im at 30,000 km and no problems or issues.

i have 24k miles and its all like new. The ride over driveway aprons can be rocky but otherwise. ride is quit and the
seats are super comfortable. the tech is best I have had with apple play and the controls. The styling is what really stands out and the quality and fit is the best i have ever owned.

We traded in a '14 Equinox LTZ for a '18 Envision Premium. Although we have had it for only two full months, I think the car is super and that is measuring against the Equinox that we really loved (I have many hate relationships with cars over the 40+ years of buying them). I would recommend the car highly and the '18's are providing good value. We got rebates from GM, GM Financial and the GM Card to the tune of $7,800 after the reduction in the sticker. All around I think we got a very fair and equitable deal on a great car. I would also say that not everything you read is in stone. Much of the complaints I read about or reviewed in you tube do not seem to be a problem. The car is very quit, rides quite well and is very smooth, accelerates crisply and drives very solid. I am not sure where some of the critiques come from. That of course is our experience. You need to do some test driving.
