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


I bought my Verano in April, 2012 - I really like the comfort, especially on long drives, and the styling compares with cars several thousands more expensive. However, I would warn you, it is a bit under-powered - not scary weak, but not quite as quick as, say, a Camry. Also, within 2 months I noticed black soot at the tailpipe. It's been looked at twice by the dealer's service mgr, who says he called GM about it, and there is little that can be done because it has to do with valve timing. I don't think this qualifies as a "LEMON"-type deficiency, but it is a disappointment. If you can live with cleaning the tailpipe every couple weeks, take a hard look at this car.

Best Features

Love the OnStar - I have inadvertantly hit the button twice, and the staff have been really nice both times; get the Sirius/XM - it makes long trips better; the interior styling has been a nice surprise - there are some open spots that catch dust, but the overall appearance is world-class

Worst Features

Close some of the interior gaps - steering wheel, dash around the instrument cluster; fix the soot problem
