My little opinion
By Steven on
2005 Buick Rainier CXL AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
I have yet to find something dissapointing about my brand new Rainier. I read this page Edmunds.com vehicle review and I dissagree with the obvious negative slant. The Rainier is everything I wanted in an SUV. Of course the mileage is bad, but when we were shopping for an SUV, we agreed that we don't give a darn about gas mileage. It is so comfortable that my dad even said it was nicer than his Lincoln. We will keep this Rainier forever.This handles excellent in snow and ice. I was showing it off to my pal (who bought one also)and I couldn't lose control in the snow. I tried everything to skid, but the Rainier wouln't have it.
The adjustable pedals sealed the deal as far as my 5ft 3in wife was concerned. I always had to worry about an air bag seriously injuring her because she had to move the seat so far forward to touch the pedals. I like the overall design. We are in our mid 20's and the Rainier stood out the most to us
