- Buick Ownership
Hello there, I think that I might have a lemon. Does anyone’s Buick Veraneo makes an engine knocking noise when you start it up in the mornings or when you let it sit for a while? I took it to the dealer like three times already. The first time they change the oil... (They used my free oil change for that)!!! and change a part, but that didn’t work. The second time they change another part, but the problem still existed. The third time they stayed with the car for a week and nothing, the maintenance supervisor told me that this was normal thing and it comes like that from the factory, he said that it was the fuel pump and it makes that noise.... (I do have a good background on mechanics and fuel pump does not make a knocking noise the make a buzzing noise). He mentioned that ALL veranos do that same knocking noise. Honestly to me I don’t think so...it sounds like a lifter is bad or going bad, because it will knock for a good 6 mins or more and it becomes louder if I step on the gas...are you guys having this problem??? I will attach a recording... please let me know. I’m in the military and I deploy a lot and I don’t want to leave my and daughter with a problem car... thank you.
