Buick Encore: Driving and Operating / Drive Systems

Buick Encore 2020-2022 Owner's Manual / Driving and Operating / Drive Systems

All-Wheel Drive

If equipped, this feature transfers engine power, as required, to all four wheels. It is fully automatic, and adjusts itself as needed for road conditions.

When using a compact spare tire on an All-Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicle, the system automatically detects the compact spare and disables AWD to protect the system. A Driver Information Center (DIC) message will display on the instrument cluster. See Vehicle Messages. To restore AWD operation and prevent excessive wear on the system, replace the compact spare with a full-size tire as soon as possible. See Compact Spare Tire.

AWD will be disabled and the message will display if there is excessive wheel spin. When the system cools down, AWD will be restored.
