2004 Buick Rainier SUV CXL AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Everything from the buying process to
the trips and commuting I do in my
Rainier has been a pleasure. The car
itself is beautiful - a dark green with
lots of chrome highlights. Everything
is automatic, from the seat positions
to lights turning on. It rides
smoothly and quietly, but without that
floating feeling that can make luxury
cars less handleable. We've already
had to call on the services of OnStar
when the family was locked out of the
car while on vacation - they came
through with flying colors and got us
back in the car within five minutes.

Review

I traded in a 2003 Cadillac Deville
for the 2004 Rainier V8, the ride is
quieter, smoother, and the only thing
I miss is the mileage per gallon.


Best Features

Quick acceleration when needed and it fits better in my garage. XM Radio


Worst Features

None

2004 Buick Rainier SUV CXL Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I test drove the other intermediate
sized SUV's; Trailblazer, Envoy, and
found the Rainier the smoothest and
best buy of the three. Most comfort
and comfort features.


Best Features

The navigational system is very slick; a bit tedious to program destination but, once done, what a wonderful feature! XM Radio is a must too! Smooth car-like ride like Buick is famous for.

2004 Buick Rainier SUV CXL Plus AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall this is a great value with the
current rebates. Surprised about a few
things though. No hydraulic lift for
the hood? Even Rendexvous has this.
Too much plastic. Faux wood. Unexciting
instrument panel. Poor range of low
beam headlights. WOW! What a quiet
vehicle and great ride!


Best Features

Satelite navigation system. Dual climate control. Sunroof.


Worst Features

All the negatives mentioned in the review section. Some of which I have heard have been addressed in the 2005 model.
