    So found the leak and its the plastic coolant distribution pipe on the back of the motor...So basically a cheap plastic part that is a part of a critical system "cooling" failed on this car...Great job Buick saving money by using cheap plastic parts that I gotta go buy now.

    So my wifes 2013 Encore has sprung another leak..looks like back of engine where hoses come to a plastic fitting bolted to back of engine...We just had over $1500 of work done on front of engine replacing water pump and thermostat housing and a lot of engine oil seals in front..We bought extended warranty which covered it barely by 50 miles..However the warranty cost us more than the repairs did....No longer a fan of warranties. Anyone else with similar experiences?
    Oh, the Encore has about 78K now and major leaks occurred at almost 70K..
    I'd like to add that overall I think this is a great car but GM needs to get it together with these leaks.
