Buick Encore RecallsTire Placard Do Not Provide Wheel Rim Size Information
The tire placards on the vehicle do not list proper wheel rim size. General Motors will send owners of affected vehicles a corrected label free of charge, and the owner can install on their own or seek dealers assistance for installation.
The electric power steering system may fail, due to the steering column housing contacting and wearing on the power steering printed circuit board. Dealers will inspect and replace the steering column as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
Due to a potential problem with seatbelt pretensioners, front seat occupants may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace both front the driver's and the passenger's lap belt pretensioners to correct this concern. Remedy parts are not currently available, owners will be sent a notification when parts become available.
