A Buyer’s Guide to the 2012 Buick Verano

Buick Verano 2012

The 2012 Buick Verano is a near luxury sedan that is affordably priced with lots of technology and comfort that comes standard. The interior is covered in leather with a rich variety of colors. The legroom in the front is ample enough for even tall passengers. The Verano offers a smooth ride and is considered great entrance vehicle for those just getting into luxury cars.

Key Features

The Verano comes with a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine that offers 180 hp at 6,700 rpm and a six speed automatic transmission. The fuel economy is estimated at 21 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. Other standard features on this vehicle include automatic climate control, remote engine start, traction control, 10 airbags, stability control, and OnStar crash notification and stolen vehicle location.

Changes for 2012

The 2012 Buick Verano is an all-new model.

What We Like

The Quiet Tuning that Buick came out with effectively reduces interior noise and creates a quiet cabin. For those who don’t like road noise, you will love the Quiet Tuning feature. Buick IntelliLink is another nice feature that lets you control the smart phone through a seven inch touch screen display. It has hands free calling, streaming music capability, and Internet audio services. The Verano also accelerates nicely with its six speed automatic transmission and has a very responsive steering.

What Concerns Us

The Buick Verano is not quite as roomy as its competitors, so if you want your luxury vehicle to have more interior room, you may want to look somewhere else. The Verano does not have as much power as its competitors, but it does get decent gas mileage so there is a tradeoff there.

Available Models

The Buick Verano comes in the base, Convenience, and Leather group depending on how you want to outfit your vehicle. All offer the same fuel economy, yet each one has different features and options.

Major Recalls

The 2012 Buick Verano was recalled due to the driver side airbag shorting bar may contact the airbag terminals. This can cause the airbag not to deploy properly if the terminals are touching each other at the time of a crash.

Common Issues

Common complaints include large oil consumption, bad O2 sensor, accelerates when braking, clicking noise, brakes wearing early, A/C blowing hot air, noise when shifting, front end shaking, battery dying, and headlight connector corroding.
