This is the ultimate all-around car. Comfortable, efficient, reliable and safe. I was stopped in trafic on I-75 when my last one was rearended by a distracted driver. The impact was so hard that it crushed her car, my car, and the SUV in front of me. My Encore did what it was supposed to do, and sacrificed sheet metal for my safety - not a scratch on any of us. Afterwards I drove it 45 miles to the body shop, where they totalled it. That was one tough little car. And you bet I replaced it with another one!
