2012 Buick Verano Convenience Group 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Safe, reliable, drives like a dream and really quiet. Nice options for the money and inexpensive to operate. On top of all of that it looks fantastic! I've had mine for 40,000 miles and I love this car.

Review

This car has been extremely good to me in the little over a year that I've had it. I have put over 15,000 miles on this car. During this time I have averaged about 28-30mpg with mostly country driving and haven't had a single problem with the vehicle. On the highway from Pittsburgh to Nashville TN, I averaged 35mpg. Fantastic! Those who complain about the power must have never driven other compact offerings. In comparison, this car has a good amount of power. The only things that aren't great about the vehicle are the blind spots and the rear seat room. Great for tall people!

Review

Engine developed rocking at low RPM's (<1000 when in idle, sitting at the traffic light, goes away when you drive) at 70K, recently started seeing 'Reduced Power to Engine, Service Stabilitrak' warning on the dash and partial power loss. On 4-year-old car, at less than 100K engine - it's pretty pathetic to have go into shop for major diagnostics, GM.
AC went again, even though refrigerant shows pressurized to proper level. Bumper cover started falling off at the point of attachment (fixed myself), and inner insert fell of twice (had to JB weld it). This car is a cash cow for dealerships and mechanics and nightmare for a DIY owner (unless you don't mind buying it at full price at the dealership and just driving it in and getting a loaner vehicle and paying lots of $$$ every time something goes wrong).
Did I mention that even license plate indent is not shaped right? (made for European, skinny plates).
A lemon. After my reliable-as-AK 2001 Buick Verano that I only sold because of severe body panel rust issues and worn-out-to-shreads leather driver seats after 10 years of cold Michigan winters and hot summers, I am bitterly disappointed in Buick products. Probably my last Buick ever.

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!!!!! Update 2/1/17. Still think this is the worst car and buy i ever made. Timing chain went out and destroyed everything around it wen it went bad. Now, transmission needs replaced. All i can say is that this model muat have been the worst buick ever made in 2012. If you come across a used one, pass it by! update 1/1/18-engine blew. Water in oil. Is the worst car ever had. THINK TWICE BEFORE OWNING A BUICK!!!!!
