2007 Buick Rainier SUV CXL 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Handles great on trips, all the bells & whistles you would want. Biggest complaint is with rear seats down it is difficult to access a cooler behind the driver from the passenger side. Sun visors are to small and for the price you would think it would have pull outs so when you use them as a side visor they would block the top of the drivers/passengers window! Very aggravating!


Best Features

Power seats with auto reverse when you turn the key off for easy departure. XM radio & OnStar! Heated seats are excellent! Instant start is much better than haveing to hold the key in start until the engine does rev up!


Worst Features

More storage space for maps etc. in front and some place to hang a trash bag! to late now with them being out of production?

2007 Buick Rainier SUV CXL 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

With over 17,000 miles on my Rainier, there have been zero problems with the vehicle. I purchased the Rainier because the seats in my 2004 LeSabre were so uncomfortable my wife could not ride in it for any distance, even though we had zero problems with it over 85,000 miles and still experienced 32 mpg on the highway and 22 in my commute to work. The Rainier's ride is great, wind noise in minimal, seating comfort is perfect (I'm 6'4" and my wife is 5'6"), and the towing and carrying flexibility are outstanding. While the mpg averages are less than the LeSabre, I still average slightly over 22 mpg on the highway and a little over 15 mpg commuting to work. This was Buick's best kept secret!


Best Features

Seating comfort, ride, leveling rear shocks, towing capacity, solid construction, reliability.


Worst Features

While the engine is powerful - 291 hp - it does not have the quickness one would expect.

Review

Have been incredibly pleased with all aspects of this SUV. The smooth and quiet of the ride are not like an SUV. Plenty of power in the I-6. Dollar value was outstanding. It is unfortunate that Buick is not continuing the Rainier.


Best Features

Smooth and quite ride.


Worst Features

Continue production!

Review

We were looking at the Acacia when the dealer showed us the Rainier. The value for the Rainier was exceptional. We towed our boat on a 2,000 mile excursion through the Sierras and it pulled with very little problem. Comfortable seats, quiet and smooth ride. The fold back rear seat headrests help with vision when no one is riding in the back. The built in air compressor is a plus. urning radius is very tight.


Best Features

Air suspension raises vehicle when driving, but lowers for easy entry.


Worst Features

Move the gearshift to column. That would allow easier access to cupholders and provide room for more compartment storage.

Review

The last 3 SUV's we've owened were all Oldsmobile Bravada's which was a step above the Envoy and step below a Cadillac. When Oldsmobile closed, the Buick division cloned the Bravada with the Rainier. After recently buying the Rainier, we were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this truck truly is. The ride is great, performance great and totally compares to the Bravada. Buick came a long way when they created this truck. Not an old man's vehicle anymore!


Best Features

GPS. Stability track


Worst Features

Cup holder too close to shifter and can't get cup in or out while truck is in park. No other complaints!
