Review

Ever since owning this vehicle, the warranty doesnt cover alot of parts. Transmission is bad. Stalls alot. Electronics just shut off. Ac fan varies in speed. Very, very poor acceleration to pass cars. Handles great though. First time ever owning a buick and certainly the last time buying one. My overall opinion is that car is junk. Shame american makers cant get it right. Im buying a foreign car this time. You can look up on google how bad these cars are. DO NOT BUY BUICK!!!!!

Review

I bought this car with high hopes that its looks would reflect its performance. I was and am still very disappointed. Within the first 1000 miles I started to notice that it was not only relucant to accelerate but struggling by jerking like the transmission is about to drop out of the car. The spoiler has broken off twice now and when I drive over anything but a smooth road the car rebels by sounding like the 96 saturn that I drive to work. To say its a rough ride is an understatement. Also the interior scratches very easy. Everyday
I see new marks and we don't have small children nor any pets that ride in the car. Lastly, the seats are already bubbling up in the center making it look old.


Best Features

The exterior is a great look which is what drew me to purchase the car. The interior has a great look but again the seats are cheaply made in that they are showing signs of severe wear already. I like the 18 in sporty wheels and grill design.


Worst Features

I am addressing all of the problems that I'm having with the Verano with the dealership where I purchased it in hopes of getting everything fixed. I ran out of characters above so I could not speak to the black exaust that is coming out of the tail pipe. My suggestion is for GM to analize all responses like mine and address the issues because this will determine if I will ever consider buying their line of vehicles again.

Review

I've owned it for 6 mos.
After I bought it, I learned that this is the best selling car in CHINA.
So, GM's built likely a million of these things by now and I think they've got it down.
No problems whatsoever so far, rare for a first year model.
Likes: VERY quiet; smooth autostick tranny; fast enough for any legal driving; GREAT handling (tires on this small car are same size as my former 300C Special); OnStar (they do Everything!); fold down rear seats: comfort/interior appearance.
Best integration of
tech systems of all current Buick models.
Dislikes:
Short legroom reat seats (but OK in a pinch for 4 adults);
needs full power on both front seats;
cheap looking ext. fender seams.

Review

Buick is definitely not your grandfathers or your fathers Buick anymore! Coming from a 37 year old Ford man, I am completely impressed. Great car for the price and I've looked at all the other car brands just to be unbiased and none could touch the Verano in any categories except maybe speed. Still pretty quick though. Homerun there Buick!


Best Features

All of them. I mean come on, I can start my car with my phone!


Worst Features

Maybe some more speed.

Review

I purchased this vehicle little over a month ago.
It is super quiet, great gas mileage and loaded with ammenities.
The only cons that i have for this car is the gas filler neck is located on the right side of the car instead of being on the drivers side, also it only has one 12 volt outlet.
Would loved to have at least two of them.

This is my third Buick ( 96 Regal,
2005 Lacrosse and now this Verano). This has to be the quietest buick so far.
I would recommend this vehicle to anyone that loves a quiet and smooth riding car.


Best Features

Six speed transmission, 7 inch LCD screen, Sirius/XM radio.


Worst Features

Install a second 12 volt outlet and move the gas filler neck to the drivers side.
