I've had my Envision about six weeks now and I'm still in love with it. Two things I love that I didn't know about until I got it home are 1-holding the unlock button on the key fob will lower the windows. Great for letting hot air out of the car as you approach it and 2-being able to customize your infotainment screen from the "My Buick" app.

Something I don't like is the fact that the Chevy Blazer Premium package offers a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel but the Envision Avenir doesn't.

My dislike is that the seat belts get stuck between the seat and door post when I go to put them on. This is because the belt stop for the chrome latch is too low. I solved this by buying a locking clip from Amazon that attaches to the belt so the latch rides up higher on the belt. Also when first driving in the day, the transmission seems to be searching for a gear. It's almost like the engine is miss firing but the tach is not fluctuating so I assume it must be the trans. After it is warmed up, it does not do it anymore.

I had a 2020 Envision....got it in Jan of this year... I go for a oil change and the dealer offers me 2 grand more than I paid for it...guess they are dying for used cars.... I bickered for hours and finally got a great deal on a 2021 Envision which has been redesigned inside and out. Love it...picky things I don't like though. There are way fewer charging ports on the 2021. Got the same color dark blue but the seats in the 21 are beige which is not a deal breaker but would have liked the blue seats I had on the 20. First world problems I guess. Oh, the entertainment screen is huge. The dash is more of a cockpit wrap around...really nice...I hope when I go for a oil change in 6 months I don't get a 22...

Love the looks of the ST package, the leather seats, fuel mileage, quiet smooth ride, seamless shifting canadian warranty is awesome, the AWD in snow is great!

I don't like the fake exhaust tips, lack of fog lights, tiltled dash towards driver, the lack of being able to order certain options with the ST package in Canada. (Adaptive cruise, nav, cooled seats etc)

I have had BMWs, a 2006 Z4 and a 2015 428i, both were great cars but when my 428i ran out of warranty, time to look elsewhere. Looked at SUVs, decided to try the 2021 Envision Essence ST, steel gray with a dark gray/black interior. I was initially worried about the dark interior and the NC summers but I was delighted at how quickly it cooled. Bought a WeatherTech cargo unit since I got the Buick floor weather mats. I will say I am a car fanatic of sorts but after almost eight months, I still love it!

So, I go for an oil change yesterday and dambit... I walked into the showroom to look at the cars there....big mistake...It was like walking into a shark tank wearing tuna deodorant. This guys keeps telling me he will give me 2 grand more than I paid for the 2021 and will give me a great deal on a 22. I'm like, no no , I'm good but he said sit down, we will see what we can do. I wasn't forceful enough to say go to hell...for an hour he hounded me...made me go out to look at the 22s.... I said I already have a new car...he said a 22 would be newer!... I was so pissed. Next time I go for service I will not go into the showroom... will go out the back door and go across the street.

You should have asked if the 22 had a heated steering wheel or heated back seats. Because of the chip shortage many GM cars have been shipped to dealers without those options.
