I travel a lot. I have found the Rainier a pleasure to drive for hours at a time. My partner also shares in the driving and I sleep quite comfortably in the reclining passenger seat, although I would prefer the seats to have a little more of a bucket-seat form to provide a more settled feel into the seat. Overall, this ride feels and handles more like my older Buick Park Avenue than an SUV. I luv it, just what I was looking for!
Quietness and smooth ride. Seating is comfortable. Being able to turn on the seat back heater provides relief for those of us with constant back pain.
Higher quality knobs and more luxury in style needed, improve the front seats to help keep from sliding left and right, add real wood trim and more of it.
