Buick Verano



  • ubuntu1ubuntu1 Posts: 13
    Looking at buying a 2012 Buick Verano. Any idea on what kind of specials are going currently and what can one expect to pay for a 3-year lease assuming zero down? This is my first Buick and first time I will be leasing a car.

    If you lease, I think the best deals might b on the 13s when you factor in the higher residual value. I hope to hear what you get for pricing. I understand the 13s will finally get the back up camera.

    Just got one quote. Pricing wise, for the 12s one dealer is offering for $230 + tax and $775 down for a 36 month lease. He is assuming a residual of 60%.

    Better quote: $224 including taxes, plus $1,000 down. This is for a Verano convenience package with a sun roof.

    Just bought a base with no options for 0 down and 233 a month. 39 mo 12 k per year. No first payment so 38 payments.
    Love the car.
  • Just read that the 1.6 litre 4cyl Turbo with start/stop from Opel *is* making its way here. The article speculated it would end up in various Chevy models in 2014/2015 -- no mention of Verano.
  • When comparing to Regal, do you mean Verano is a notch better in transmission and luxurious interior or Regal is a notch better?

    Very happy with the Car.

  • Got the 2012 convenience model with sunroof for a 36 month lease (12k Miles) for $225 a month (including taxes, title, etc.) and $1,000 down. Very happy with the deal and the car so far. The ride is super smooth (much better than my Camry) and the car comes with a lot of bells and whistles.
  • e assist is a hybrid. battery behind back seats helps the engine for better mileage. gm started using it in 2007 with saturn greenlines on aura and vue. battery is now three times bigger. gm needs to get epa mileage up so trying to sell alot of hybrids by not calling them hybrids.
  • Hi, I love my Verano but it seems to have a problem when I run the A/C. I live in south Florida, and after driving for 15 minutes or more, condensation starts to build up on the lower portion of the windshield (on the outside). If I flip the wipers 1 time, it clears, but slowly returns again a few minutes later. Anybody have a suggestion? I don't want to turn on the defroster when it's 85 degrees outside.
  • Good morning joeboy3,

    Congratulations on your new Verano! Have you had this concern with your A/C evaluated by your dealership already? If you would like for us to look into this further, please email us at with more details (including your name and Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your dealership).

    Kindest regards,
    GM Customer Service
  • No, I haven't been in to the dealership yet; I'm waiting a few weeks to see if I have any other concerns, and then I will do it. They should be able to handle it.

    I would like to know the November lease money factor and residual for a 2013 Verano with leather, 10K and 12K miles per year.
  • Joe...I also live in FL and and have this same issue. It is maddening and I have not gone to the dealership yet.

  • Lack of Homelink was a deal breaker for me and I told the dealership. Might be silly to some but I am not keeping 3 remotes in my car.

    They had one custom installed for me in one of the overhead spaces
  • I have not had much time to understand the radio system in the car but maybe some other owners can respond to a few questions.

    I have NAV in mine so I don't know if that changes anything.

    Bluetooth... seems to work for phone but I cannot bluetooth radio like Pandora? I have to plug it in is that correct?

    When I had my phone on Bluetooth it seemed like every text I got etc would chime over the radio playing? Is that normal?

    Will the be downloadable updates for the radio or are we stuck with what it is from factory? I think my husbands camry gets downloadable updates to the radio and nav system.

    Good morning kaboozie,

  • This is not strictly a Verano question, but my six month old Verano got some minor dents and scratches as it hit the side of my apartment building's large trash can. Now it's making some strange noise when I reverse the car (may or may not be connected). My question is: since the car is leased, does it make sense for me to go to the dealer or a non dealer mechanic shop to check out the strange noise. Would going to the dealer create issues when I return the car after my three year lease expires?
  • Minor dents and scratches happen when a car is driven regularly. They are almost unavoidable, particularly over the duration of a multi-year lease.

    No way I'd spend a dime with a non-Buick mechanic when the car is covered under Bumper-to-Bumper warranty with $0 deductible. Take it to a Buick dealer and explain the issue to them. Unless the car was crashed into a large dumpster, the noise when backing the car is probably unrelated to your scraping a trash can.

    Hey there samtravis,

    It would be best to have your dealership check into this as you're well within warranty parameters. If the noise concern is due to a defect in materials or workmanship on GM's part, we will address that accordingly. If you should have further questions you wanted to ask us, please don't hesitate to contact us directly via email at (include your name and contact information, the last 8 digits of your VIN and mileage, the name of your dealership, and a brief recap of the situation).

  • Here is a problem I have had on day one an the dealer can not fix. When your at a complete stop an you take slow the front end will shake it was in the shop for two weeks an can not fix. I have had their loaner car an it does the same. They have no clue on how to fix the problem. I am worried this problem will cause me with other front end problems. Anyone else have this problem? I am considering trading it in for another car an it a shame I am thinking of this after 4 mths of having it.

    First of all, I can't believe there isn't more recent messages about the Verano. I am from Ontario Canada and I am a recent retiree of GM St. Catharines. I purchased a 2013 Verano in April of this year and from day one there has been quality issues on the interior of my car. the most noticeable one is a design flaw regarding the Glove Box.

    The position of the Glove box light interferes with the closing of the Glove box door. The rough plastic ridge of the light rubs on the lower ridge on the interior Glove box door and is leaving a mark, as well as wearing off the fuzzy material of the Glove box.

    I have visited another dealership as well as my own and have noticed the same problem in all their Verano showroom vehicles.

    For those of you who have 2012 and 2013 Veranos, I am curious to know if your own Veranos have the same problem.

    Hey axle,

    Have not noticed a problem with the glove box. But then, I tend to slam rather than close, so no interference there. Also, I have only closed the glove box from the passenger seat (or outside, passenger door).

  • I have a 2012 Buick Verano that has jumped forward twice causing me to crash (into walls both times). Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a way to investigate through onstar what caused this to happen?
  • axle52axle52 Posts: 36

    (mine is a 2013 Verano)

    I just experienced something similar only it felt like we were going forward but I was stopped with the car idiling in gear with my brake on. When in drive you can shift over to manual mode very easily. Just wondering if you were at a stop and in gear when this happened to you.

    Was wondering if you ever got the problem fixed? We bought a 2013 verano and have been having same issue. The dealership where we bought it had it for 6 weeks trying to figure out problem and can't seem to fix it or figure it out?? It's very frustrating! It's a brand new car... I only have had it for a few months. I have had issues with air and with the emergency brake. I am at my wits end! Thinking about talking to a lawyer about lemon law! Thanks...
  • They were not able to fix the problem but I know that many people have had the same issue. I'm talking to a Class Action Attorney because they are not doing a recall. After two accidents, its' going to make my insurance go sky high and I'm afraid to drive the vehicle again. I'm at a crossroads.
