    Exclamation Air Cooling problems

    I've had the Verano for a year now. In general it has been pretty good:EXCEPT yes I agree on the front seats they are a little stiff. Has anybody have had air conditioning problems. Mine is coming out at 58 degree's but the Dealer says he has no error codes so it is working fine. The loaner car he gave me had a range 39 to 41 degrees. When we took a drive with the loaner, he took mine back but I have not heard anything for two days.

    I am having the same issue with the windshield fogging on the outside, and have a small shudder in the transmission when shifting from 1st to 2nd. I love the car so far though its more than I thought it would be. 2012 white diamond tricoat, 2.4, automatic, 32k miles.

    2014 verano, windshield fogging does seem to be a common problem with the veranos along with the very loud noise of the engine fans on hot days. Anything we can do about these issues or are these inherent with the Verano ! Would like to have Customer Care reply to this post ! Otherwise very satisfied with performance so far with no other issues !

    3rd popped OEM 235/45R18 Continental Conti Pro tire and its not even 40k miles old. Tire was not made for Ohio roads - pops like circus baloons. Been replacing with Good Eagle LS ($70 per tire cheaper snd more rugged for pothole ridden roads). At this poibt there is one original tire left on the chassis (back right). Another strike against GM engineering. Do NOT buy GM cars, not a quality-made car. Very sad to see how low it's fallen in 10 years..

    I have noticed that our A/C does not work all that well either, plan to take it to an outside shop that specializes in A/C systems in the spring.

    4) Intellilink starts playing musics and turns off the radio without comman when cellphone is plugged into USB port.
    .
    I've noticed both of these issues as well, although the windshield issue seems to be very intermittent

    Plan to take ours to an Independent shop to have the A/C looked at for these issues

    Low profile tires are more prone to this than others, it's not a brand specific or GM specific thing. I have had this happen on an Audi with BF Goodrich low profile tires as well

    2012 Buick Verano, 36k miles. Problems so far: 2 tire popped (Continental Conti Pros - garbage; get Good Eagle LS), headlight connector partially melted at the plug, StabiliTrak wire corroded along the harnes near firewall along with Steering sensor going crazy (cost me almost $1000 out of pocket), Oil change unreasonably difficult (very tight spaces, need special tools, adapters and extensions), body panels impossibly hard to screw together (especially fender and bumper). Car is a nightmare to work on, electronic system junky, wheel are crap from the OEM. Did I mention cloth insert in the leather seat already showing sign of wear after a year? Never buying another Buick.

    Just to clarify ... The Verano is not "based" on the Cruze. They both simply share underpinnings. The closer relationship of the Verano would be the German made Opel Astra. GM owns Opel and used the 2010 Opel to develop its 2012 Verano. Just making this corrections because by stating that the Verano was "based" off the Cruze implies GM would be back to its 80's practices of rebadging. i can assure you, the Verano is a different car than the Cruse other than sharing the Delta 2 platform.

    Verano is not a Cruze

    While the Verano and the Cruze are on the same platform, it is not "based on" the Cruze.
    The Verano shares with the Chinese Buick Excelle and the Opel Astra. The Cruze shares with the Opel/Vauxhall Zafira.

    I leased a LT2 Cruze and am currently leasing a Verano and have had minimal issues with both vehicles. (so far with the Verano)
    The only problem I really had with the Cruze was discovering an electrical harness under the hood that was damaged by rodents a couple weeks after the warranty ended. (bad timing on my part).

    With the Verano, the only issues are spotty interface between phone and the infotainment system. (I've found that bluetooth works better than the connecting with the phone cable), a bad valve stem on front passenger tire, and a mechanical sounding clunk when accelerating from a stop.

    I'm having the EXACT same problems you are having except for the bad stem valve. That mechanical clunk sound is the same problem I'm having in addition to the car pulling slightly to the left. Took it to the dealer and they can't duplicate it even after I told them it only happens while the car has not been running for an hour or more. I'm scheduled to see the service manager sometime next week about it. I'll keep you posted!
