Vehicle

2005 Buick Rainier CXL Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We'd been driving Cadillac sedans for years and switched to the Ranier SUV. It is very comfortable and pulls a trailer very well even in the mountains. We love the Ranier.


Favorite Features

Easy in and out. Love the Bose stereo system and the GPS.


Suggested Improvements

Better placed cup holders. Less noisey suspension adjustment. We could do without the sun roof.

Vehicle

2005 Buick Rainier CXL AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I test drove many of the SUV's including the new Ford Edge. The Buick Rainier beats them all in ride, comfort, and style. This has to be the most under-rated vehicle in its class. A tremendous used car value.


Favorite Features

Comfort and ride. Incredibily smooth. The V-8 engine is a rocket! I'm getting between 15 and 17 miles per gallon which I can't complain about.

Vehicle

2005 Buick Rainier CXL Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Easy to drive and maneuver in parking lots. Plenty of power in the 6 cylinder engine. Doesn't cruise on open roads as well as the LaSabre I owned previously but is much better on mountain roads. I like the inside comfort and controls. Plenty of storage space in the rear. Very smooth and quiet ride.


Favorite Features

Easy to drive around town and maneuver in tight places. Also, very smooth and quiet ride.


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy.

2005 Buick Rainier CXL AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've had my Buick for four months now and I really fell in love with it. It is the most comfortable SUV that I have ridden in. The ride is like my cousin's Cadillac.


Favorite Features

The heated seats that make it worth every penny that I paid for it.


Suggested Improvements

The cup holder it is way too close to the shift knob.

2005 Buick Rainier CXL Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have never owned a vehicle I have liked more. Traded a BMW and would never go back. Feel reviewers have given this vehicle a bad rap. I like everything about this vehicle and can't wait to get my new one. Also own a DTS Caddy and really would just as soon drive the Buick. Runs like a scalded dog. A/C is fantastic. Ride is wonderful. Edmunds say Toureg or 4Runner? I say pooey. 6'1 250 lbs this is one roomy vehicle. Wonderfully reliable. What more can I say? Have owned Suburban and like this much better. Turns on a dime. Easy to park.


Favorite Features

Ride, performance, and quietness.


Suggested Improvements

A/C. Seats.
