Editor's Overview

The 2014 Verano is Buick's smallest sedan, but it boasts big levels of the brand's acclaimed comfort and quiet. This entry-level luxury 4-door isn't as athletic as an Acura ILX, but with a starting price of under $25,000 it brings a lot of value and safety features to the table.

My Buick makes me feel safe and it is always reliable.

Reliable smooth ride good on gas looks like a luxury car I love the white diamond color people stop and say what a pretty car air conditioning works well great stereo system. Feels safe to ride when the weather is bad. I am very happy with my Buick Verano and I recommend it all the time to friends and family. My granddaughter has the same car it is her first car she got it at eighteen years. I was happy that she bought a Buick Verano.

Reliable and comfortable and stylish.

Love the Bluetooth connectivity and the dual side temperature controls. Good gas mileage. Car sits pretty low so have had issues with scraping on the bottom. Car was used but had good mileage so haven't run into any issues except needed to change tires less than a year with the car because of issues with the align. Have taken it in already but car keeps turning to one side primarily.

Buick Verano-not bad, not fantastic.

Lots of issues with the tires going flat. Electrical system quirky, especially when the phone is plugged into the USB port. Not bad for value. The interior is nice end it has a smart interface. It ran fairly well the first year I had it last year however, this past year I have had several problems but the Buick dealership was very professional and easy to work with.
