Which reviews have you taken in (from which publications) and what were the corresponding "star" ratings?
Like I said, if you search google there are some that show up on that first page. Those reviews are from the typical big publications.Which reviews have you taken in (from which publications) and what were the corresponding "star" ratings?
I think people will eventually get over it. I mean look at Encore, it's built in Korea. Not that many people like it at first, but look at where it is now?
Valid point on timing since for all we know these could get worse as owners clear the break in threshold and into a point they're racking up some good mileage. SO FAR, face value of the Envision is of no concern but what we'll learn in the coming weeks and months (or now from current owners with good mileage) is whats interesting.Edmunds has it at 3.7/5 and cars.usnews.com has it at 8.1/10, car&driver gave a pretty straightforward and not "negative" verdict on it, NHTSA has it rated very well for safety and so does IIHS.
Look beyond just stars and read the content of the reviews and you'll see it's really not that bad.
I guess they would want the Envision to have floaty rideWhat composes those 2 and 3 out 5 stars...nothing. You'll have to read the review and compare for yourself. That Christian Seabaugh on the Motortrend reviews is a real tool. I comment in the readers section that have suspended that the seat backs in my friend's Range Rover, that gets close to $80,000, has plastic front seat backs. Allot of those tests are best on MSRP which nobody pays.
The Consumer Reports video complains about the Envision handling and then goes onto gush over the Jaguar F-Pace handling. When I review CR'S handling test the Envision has the same collision avoidance speed as....you guessed it....the Jaguar.
If you don't want to spend more for 2016 Premium l or ll (middle $30's under 10,000 miles), there is usually someone on cars or autotrader selling brand 2017 Essence for $10,000 off MSRP. Or about $27,000. No amount of sound deadening on a $19,000 cuv is going match the Buick on quietness and price.
