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

Review

The best vehicle I've ever driven. Rides very well and is VERY quiet and comfortable. AWD with 275 HP 6 is fantastic. Air suspension and heated seats are just icing on the cake. The "pros" rate this car a "6" just because it is not a BMW or sports car. Frankly, I didn't want a sports car. I wanted quiet comfort and this is IT. The little extras like access to the air compressor make it sweet. I test drove Honda, Toyota and Nissan - no comparison to the solid, quiet feel of the Rainier. The Pilot was noisier than my old Blazer. I will keep this vehicle a very long time after paying $33k with 0% financing.

Favorite Features

Special Buick "quiet tuning" that really works, powerful 6 cyl, air suspension, solid feel, tight turning radius, heated seats with lumbar adjustment

Suggested Improvements

Better/more storage & cup holder arrangement, fully extendable visors (not half-baked ones), locking gas cap, lose the fake wood on steering wheel (just leather wrap the whole thing please), power folding mirrors (for my skinny garage), offer a more stripped-down version with fewer bells & whistle
