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


Review

Quiet, powerful and comfortable style. Our Rainier is powered by a 5.3 V8 and gets 18 average MPG. Compared to other brands, we are happy with the Rainier's gas mileage. It handles very well.


Best Features

Dual climate control and air suspension, quiet ride, nice audio system.


Worst Features

None.

Review

No problems with this SUV...Very quiet ride which I have never experienced in an SUV before and this is my third. Interior is very comfortable. No trips to the dealer in my first year. Low profile tires help it look good and handle well.


Best Features

I love the quiet ride!


Worst Features

I wish it had more head room...I am 6'4" and it would be nice to have a big SUV that would fit. Would like to have the chrome wheels that are on the GMC Envoy.

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


Review

A great vehicle. After experiencing the Lexus RS300, this vehicle is far superior in all aspects. The Rainier is more roomy, more solid, more fun to ride and has a much more comfortable ride than the Lexus. The Rainier is quieter and the quality is superior.


Best Features

Lots of bells and whistles, comfort, quietness, roomy. The vehicle is nice to drive and gives good visabilty. And it is American.


Worst Features

Gas consumption is always an area that could be improved.

I test drove this SUV and knew it was the one for me. It drives like a luxury car, handles the road well, very quiet and looks great.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the Quiet tuning.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Other than that, it is great.

Review

The ride is the best! So smooth and lots of power and very quiet.


Best Features

The ride, and the adustable and heated seats.


Worst Features

Arm supports would be nice and bringing some of the wood look to the steering wheel would really dress up the look inside.
