Buick Sales Flat in October as Encore Carries the Load
Buick sales were flat in October with 18,660 units sold, down just 39 units from October 2014. Overall, Buick’s sedans were all down double digits once more, sales of the Enclave were flat, and the Encore once again posted double-digit sales increases strong enough to offset an otherwise drab month.
