Archives For Buick Encore

LaFontaine Cadillac Buick GMC is teaming up with Lakeland High School and Milford High School in an effort to help raise funds to support the extracurricular activities and sports programs at each school.

To accomplish this, the schools are participating in the Buick Drive For Your Students program which matches a local school with a local Buick dealership to raise money during a test-drive event.

“This program further demonstrates Buick’s commitment to community and education, as well as the local investment that dealers are making in their home towns,” said Molly Peck, director of Marketing for Buick.

In addition to gaining funds for their schools, students who help host the drive events gain valuable real-world experience in helping dealers plan, coordinate and execute events.

“We’ve been hosting test-drive fundraisers for area schools and organizations the past three years,” said Kelley LaFontaine of the LaFontaine Automotive Group, “we’re thrilled that Buick has joined us in this effort to support and offset the rising costs of after-school programs”.

If you’ve been listening to 102.9 W4 Country lately, you may have heard that mid-day show host, Lori Rigato, is driving around town in a 2014 Buick Encore courtesy of LaFontaine Buick GMC of Ann Arbor.

I just talked to Lori during our Kiss The Car event, and she’s definitely enjoying what the Encore has to offer in a compact SUV.

Now before I get into the exciting plans we have for a new video series, I need to be 100% transparent with you and disclose a few details of this partnership.

Once known for being the car your grandfather drove, Buick has been making bold statements lately with their design, technology, safety and overall luxury (you know, things that people of all ages can appreciate)

We’ve seen it here in the dealership ever since the redesigned Buick LaCrosse hit our showroom in 2010 and since then, Buick has been putting out vehicle after vehicle that is setting a new standard for affordable luxury.

From the Regal and Verano to the Enclave and Encore – Buick now boasts an all-star, luxury lineup.

Obviously we’re a little bit biased having Buick Dealerships in Ann Arbor and Highland (and for full disclosure, I drive a Buick Verano myself).

So don’t take my word for it, take the word of one of the most respected 3rd party names in the automotive retail industry – Kelley Blue Book.

The 2014 Buick Enclave, Encore & Verano each just won a KBB.com 5-Year Cost To Own Award.

Buick-KBB-5-Year-Cost-To-Own-Awards

These awards are based on KBB’s analysis of the 5-year ownership costs of all 2014 model-year vehicles available for sale in the United States. The analysis considers every key criterion that figures into the overall cost to obtain and operate a motor vehicle over a five-year period.

Included among the factors are financing costs, insurance costs and state fees plus the anticipated costs of fuel, scheduled maintenance and repairs. Also included are the critical factors of purchase price and projected depreciation.

Now that you know how each of the vehicles were graded, let’s take a look at the vehicles to see why and how they won a KBB.com 5-Year Cost To Own Award.
