Don't bother with this one...

2004 Buick Rainier CXL AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
My Rainier is a piece of garbage. Parts are expensive, and labor even more so unless you are like me and do your own repairs - and even then, it is so poorly designed that it is a major undertaking to repair. As an example, the front differential blew up recently and I had to remove the steering rack, axles, AND the engine oil pan (the passenger side axle goes THROUGH the oil pan!) to remove it. Many of the bolts are difficult to get at. It would have cost me $2500 in labor alone to have a shop repair it for me, plus parts cost. I will NEVER willingly own another vehicle in this series again, and if I could afford to buy another vehicle I would. At least it's fully paid for...
It gets me where I need to go (when I'm not busy fixing something that has broken on it...)
Re-design the whole thing so it isn't so labor-intensive to repair!
