I took my car in a total of 5 times all for the same reason. chamshaft,timing chain, oil consumption. The list goes on I am now experiencing stall where the dashboard stays on but the engine shuts off. I am over this car I brought it used never again will I buy a Buick used. I never had these many problems with my dodge that I brought used. This car is a lemon in less then two years my car has been in the shop back to back. I brought it in 2016 with 24,000 miles and it’s a 2012. Now my car shut off when I was on the expressway. This car is dangerous and I could have been hit my a semi truck anything could have happen. I took the car in the shop as of today. Stay away from this car. I’m not sure if everyone has had issues with these same things that Buick would have recall the vehicle or found the issue to the problem and recalled it. Signed a not happy person trading this car in.

Out of curiosity, how many miles are now on the car?
Did these problems start occurring immediately in 2016 when you purchased it?

The problems you listed have been known occurrences with the 2.4L, but I don't think they are necessarily widespread, and definitely not occurring with every Verano made.

From my own experience and from what appears to be mostly favorable feedback from most Verano owners, I think you may have unfortunately ended up with a "lemon". It can happen, but does not mean that every Verano is a lemon or that problematic.

Sometimes "stuff" happens, dump the car and move on, life is too short to let it get to you.
It's just a car after all....

i started having problems as soon as I got the car in 2016. July the camshaft needed to be repair. Then in November the timing chain was bad. In between oil changes my car would make noise indicting I needed oil. I did that for 2 years now my car timing chain is bad again. I don’t have money to put down on a new car. I brought a lemon car. I need help filing a claim. All my records are at a Buick dealership. I have oil change records from the dealer and good year. I have 81330 on my car now.

Unfortunately, it looks like you got one of the bad 2.4L engines.
If the recommended maintenance has be done in timely intervals, then no, you should not be having this many problems, especially with a vehicle still under 100,000 miles.

You can file a complaint/claim but since you are not the original owner and the vehicle is 7 years old and way past the warranty period, I am not sure you will have much luck in getting any help from GM/Buick.

Good luck going forward.
