Kinda slow over here

I am surprised that more people are not on here. This could be really good.
The Trax and the Sonic have a good bit in common.
I will keep posting all of the items I have in store for my Trax.
And I added MaxLiner Mats today too.!!

There is more action here than there is at the Buick Encore site, that is why I come here, I changed from Trax to Encore.

The Encore has nicer trim but it is the same car deep inside.

We looked at the Encore but to get a one that had the same options would have been a good bit more expensive.
Then we saw the MIdnight package and that was it.

The Encore I picked up has what they call the Convenience package, its the model in the middle, but it does have features that my LT Trax didn't have.

It has a power seats, 18" wheels bigger tires, and a quiet package, climatic Air Cond, a way nicer instrument panel with a heat gauge.
A nicer radio with more speakers with all kinds of apps such as weather and traffic information.

It doesn't have a sunroof, I avoid those because of the cost plus they always leak,

I can attest to the quiet package this Encore is more quiet than my Trax was.

On my Trax I could hear the road surface echoing through the suspension, when on rough pavement the Buick is very quiet

I dynomatted the entire spare tire area with 1/8 inch duct insulation. This helped greatly the road noise and took about 20 minutes.
I may do more if I get time. Biggest reason was factory Sub Woofer sounded kinda loose.
This made it tighter and also took away some road noise for me.
I will also add an UltraGauge to my dash board.
This will give me things like:
Engine temp
Ambient air temp
Boost PSI
HP
And TQ numbers is real time.
Gives Instant MPG as well.

I don't suppose you have a picture of the spare tire area? Just so people who are looking to do the same thing have a picture for reference.
