2004 Buick Rainier CXL Plus AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Ride is excellent for and SUV. Very
quiet, much quieter than wife's
Acura. Passed on the V8 as
performance is quite good, V8 only
adds 15 HP but more torque. Build
quality was very good, as are
materials. Terrific seats, and audio
Instrument panel layout was a top
feature. exterior styling not as
bland as many SUVs.
Incredibly, the CD player can't be
used while DVD-NAV system in use.
Steering wheel not up to level of rest
of cabin. Wood trim too dark and too
skimpy for a Buick.
