Buick Rainier - a pleasant surprise
By Mahleen on
Vehicle2004 Buick Rainier CXL AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewI researched all the luxury midsize SUV's I narrowed my list to RX330, Highlander and 4Runner Limited, FX35 and the Buick Rainier. The FX35 felt like a station wagon, the interior is cramped. The 4Runner rattled and lacked the quality Toyotas are known for. The Highlander exterior design is dull and price is high. Down to two; the RX330 is comfortable, luxuriously appointed and well constructed. To my surprise, the Rainer matched the RX330 in each category except the interior is not as luxurious BUT the Rainier outclassed the RX330 with its rock solid feel. Rainerís solid construction, amenities and GMís financing make it a true value.
Best FeaturesThe rock solid feeling this SUV gives can't be beat! My RX300 always conveyed a 'stilted' feeling, the Rainier though higher than the Lexus, does not.
Worst FeaturesNo cargo cover. For the price you'd think they would throw it in.
