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

Review

Pulled ahead in lease program from 02 Rendezvous. Looked at Infinity G45, Lexus RX330, VolvoXJ90,Nissan Murano,Dodge Magnum Wagon,GMC Yukon and Chevy Tahoe Z71. One test drive says it all. Smooth operator-heated seat backs is a nice plus--but when Tahoe has 290 horse, why spend up to five thousand more to feel like you are driving a truck. Rainier handles better, feels and looks like a Cadillac, sitting up higher yet feeling stable and secure in heavier truck. Good combination of engine choice and transmission.We are so impressed with Buick's new addition and are very satisfied with it.

Favorite Features

Heated seat backs-who needs a masseuse now?! Classy wood grain and chrome/leather use interior-wise. Bose sound. Tape recording message center. Horsepower (270) Solid, safe feel without stodginess. Great brakes and suspension. 86% of vehicle built in USA and Canada as well.

Suggested Improvements

Heads Up display! I miss it from the Rendezvous! Traded heated seat back for that, huh? If anyone at Buick is listening--please put Heads Up Display on future models...that was such a great feature!
