2013 Buick Verano Premium Group 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Never thought I would own a Buick but after test driving midsize after midsize and finding significant issues with each one, I decided to try this car after reading the positive reviews. After 5 minutes in the turbo, I knew this was going to be the one. All of the bells and whistles on a turbo sedan for less than $30K out the door is just a phenomenal deal. You really have to try hard to find even minor issues on this car. Limited rear leg room is not an issue for me.


Best Features

Turbo engine Premium Stereo Voice command controls everything Rear Cross Traffic Alert System is awesome Premium black paint is beautiful Seats are very comfortable (I am 6'4") Ride is comfortable and ridiculously quiet. Did I mention that this thing is fast, fast, fast


Worst Features

- Make the seat fully powered. Currently the recline function is manual. - Passenger seat is not powered at all (Buick really cheaped out on that) - Trunk needs to be a little larger

2013 Buick Verano Premium Group 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

The Verano is a delight to drive with the radio off and the climate control turn down low. When on the phone using Bluetooth most don't know I am in the car on the highway. The laminated front glass areas do a great job of eliminating wind noise as most manufacturer wouldn't do. The ride is smooth and quiet yet sporty when you need it. The steering is very quick to response and it matches the responsiveness of the brakes. Highway fuel economy exceeds EPA estimates even with AC blasting. The seats are great on long trips as the foam density is about the best I have recently experienced, yet hugging you for a sporty feel.


Best Features

Parking sensors along with back camera work very well. I wouldn't have thought I would like them including the blind spot monitor. The manual transmission is smooth shifting and precise. Clutch pedal is very light and the engagement is easy in heavy traffic. I love the Luxo Blue with Chocacino brown interior is very rich. The interior material are plush with no hard spots to bump your elbows. The NAV works great and is easy to read. I run Slacker Radio of the cell phone along with Waze and all the prompts come over the car speakers. Blue interior lights from the door pull shining down into the door map pocket scream luxury. Nice 36" open when rear seats are down


Worst Features

The rear seating area can get a little warm and should have rear upper vents for better cooling. Maybe a lighter wheel as it does thump over some bumps but the seats don't transmit the impacts. The head light projector beams could be better as my new Buick Encore are better but they appear to be physically the same. Ceiling map lights blind at night unlike my Saab.

2013 Buick Verano Premium Group 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I’ve had my Turbo Verano for about two months. It’s my first Buick, and it’s just right for me at this point in my life: right price and right size. It rides well and is quiet, although there is some road/tire noise. I first drove a model with the base engine, which I felt was rather anemic. The turbo is more than adequate for this driver; I actually have to restrain myself a bit when stepping on the gas pedal. Body design is fine, if a bit demure. Interior is very comfortable and well appointed. Overall, it’s an very nice car.


Best Features

I particularly like the blind spot monitor system and the rear parking sensors. The InteliLink and navigation systems are fine, much easier to use the Ford’s overly complex MySync.


Worst Features

I am a bit surprised that some features that I’ve grown accustomed to on other recent cars are missing from the Verano; driver lumbar support, turn signals on the side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, front parking sensors, Homelink. While I can certainly live without these niceties, they did enrich the driving experience somewhat.
