    moaning sound low speed

    My Verano has 1000 miles and has an intermittent moaning sound at slow speeds. It continues while stopped at a light. It isn't related to braking or turning. It makes the sound with or without cruise control on or the AC. The dealer said that if the check engine light isn't on and it doesn't consistently make the sound, there's nothing they can do. The sound seems to be increasing and is very noticeable. Has anyone had this problem and/or have any suggestions?"

    That's weird. Usually the typical cause of this sound would be brakes or the steering system (rank and pinion). Can you record the sound?

    Have you taken it into the dealership?

    Good idea on recording the sound. I haven't taken it in yet, but I have called and was told to wait until the check engine light comes on. It hasn't, but the sound is loud enough that my Toyota owning friends are making fun of my purchase. Yikes.

    mertis,

    I'm sorry you are having this moaning issue. I would recommend taking your Verano to have your dealership diagnose the issue. Please keep me updated on your situation?

    if it's coming from the drivetrain or something else other than the engine a light on the dash might not pick it up, i would bring that up to a service advisory at the dealership if i were you

    Does it only make a sound when the car is moving? can you record a video and post it for us to diagnose.

    I have a 2013 Verano and just noticed this noise over the weekend. II have 1500 miles and at very low speed it sometimes makes a moaning sound kinda sounds like rubbing wet fingers around the rim of a wine glass. I will take into dealer but if anyone has an idea what this could be please help.

    Have you taken your car into the dealership? If you haven't already it would be a good idea if you did. This issue seems all too common.
    The more Buick hears about this issue the more serious they will take it!

    While your their you might want to ask them if there is a TSB on it.
