2005 Buick Rainier CXL Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Nice comfortable SUV. Good Power in
the 6 and I think plenty of storage.
Sound proofed windows make it very
quiet inside. My wife even likes to
drive it. Had Blazers (3) and this is
a good change. Lots of whistles and
bells at least for this country boy.
Mileage has been trip 19.2 (cruise) and
around town 18. Not too different than
Blazer but I use 87 Octane now and no
clicking like in the Blazers. Sound
system is no Bose but is acceptable.
Climate contol can be confusing even
with instructions but good when you get
the hang of it. Excellent
instrumentation. Has a compressor which
I thought was overkill but I've used it
twice already. I must say overall, I
like it a lot.
Quiet and comfortable for a 6'4" me.
Driver's seat is big and comfy. Rides
well and mileage is acceptable. Goes
when you punch it. Actually runs great
on 87octane with no clicking. My wife
will even drive it on trips.
Climate control. Folding rear seats
don't come down all the way when I am
driver. Better handling. Better
mileage. Quieter transmission. Improve
side mirrors for blind spots and
extension when the driver's seat is
full back. More and sharper colors.
