2013 Verano - very nice luxury compact!
By lrinnc on


2013 Buick Verano 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


I've had many small to medium sedans, but this time I wanted a domestic near-luxury compact instead of expensive foreign makes or the usual mid-sized choices. The Verano fit the bill perfectly. Tasteful two-tone interior, understated exterior styling, and perfect size for an empty-nester or young professional. The base motor is only average in terms of power and MPG, but the overall goodness of the car for the price is undeniable. The well-equipped base model seems to be the best value, if you can do without the Convenience or Leather packages.
2016 update: Still enjoying this car. Extremely reliable, no issues or repairs needed during the past 3 years. Quiet, smooth running, upscale feel without a high price to buy or own. Minor nitpicks: no trunk release on trunk lid itself, thick A-pillars on windshield hamper visibility somewhat, electronic steering feels a bit vague and disconnected. Overall, still a nice car!
2017 update: Interior materials and exterior finish still holding up well. Still no maintenance issues, except for a single recall fix for airbag warning.
2017 update after owning for 3 years: my original review still applies for the most part. I heard that this model is being discontinued, so if you are interested in a mildly upscale small sedan at a great price, now may be a good time to check out dealers remaining inventory.
