    Exclamation My List of PROBLEMS with a 2012 Verano

    Hello,

    Just wanted to list my issues exierinced so far. 29K miles on car.

    1) Rattling noise near the front drivers wheel.-Dealer fixed issue after multiple attempts. something was loose.
    2) Vehicle stalled while accelerating from a stop. Almost got in a bad collision.-Dealer replaced accelerator sensor.
    3) The interior floor flooded. from front to back all carpet was soaked.-Dealer found an HVAC hose plugged up.
    4) Airbag recall
    5) Passengers window motor is very very slow. Takes twice as long as drivers to go up. Not fixed
    6)Went to go to the store this afternoon and the car will not start. My key is stuck in the ignition. I am waiting on the tow truck.

    I spoke to "GM" after the car flooded and they would not put in another car. This trend is very disturbing. I have been a longtime GM owner and this kind of quality is poor at best. Probably the last GM purchase for me.

    After calling the Buick Roadside Assistance number 15-20 times and 2 days of waiting (no tow). They stated the weather was bad and the trucks are busy.
    I called the dealership and they had a tow in 30 mins.

    1 year old battery died and leaked acid all over the place.

    Regret buying this car

    I leased a 2013 buick verano On April 25th, 2013. Since then, I have had 3 issues all pertaining to the transmission and I am very upset about this. The first time, the car stalled randomly without warning in the turning lane at a very busy intersection. At that time, the car only had 5000 miles. Had it towed to the dealership and they said it was something with the switch in the transmission. Second time, about a week later it was excessively leaking transmission coolant. There was no warning about this either. Now I am on the third issue in less than one year. Drove the vehicle to a nearby city about 2 hours away and in transit the vehicle starts to stalls and won't switch gears. Dashboard says transmission is hot and to idle vehicle. At this point I only have approx 8000 miles on the vehicle. Its a nice car with nice features and smooth ride but the transmission is mine is crap. I would like to know if anyone else is having problems with their transmission??
