2004 Buick Rainier SUV CXL Plus Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This was an unexpected replacement
vehicle for my 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix
Anniversary Edition auto which was
totalled in a car accident. I couldn't
be happier with the Buick Rainer.
Quality, Fit, Finish is excellent and I
have the 6cyl which is getting @18 mpg
which isn't great, but not as bad as
previous Explorers and Mountaineers
that I have owned. I have the
navigational system which is alot of
fun and is much more reliable than a
friends Range Rover of the same year.
The ride is incredible smooth and quiet
and completely untruck like.This is
just a very comfortable and luxurious
vehicle which gets alot of compliment
and is a headturner.


Best Features

The ride and quietness is excellent as is the fit and finish. The Bose Audio System is GREAT, in addition to the XM Stereo feature. Gages are easy to read and electrically switches are very accessable. Great cargo, rear passenger and head room.


Worst Features

I live in Palm Springs, Ca., which can get very windy. Because of this, the vehicle is more prone, due height, I believe to move around more in heavy gusty winds. Gas mileage is fair/good but the vehicle does have a large fuel capacity

Review

The graceful look. The magnificent
vortec power, and the fact that it is
not my fathers Buick


Best Features

The power of the vortec... the comfort of the smaller vehicle... (as I was a Suburban fan)... was a pleasing element of surprise.

Review

The ride is real smooth but it has the
power to cruise into openings on the
highways or freeways. When you're
driving down the road the Rainier just
feels solid and well-built. The only
things I don't like are the
cupholders.


Best Features

The Rainier self-levels so it's safer to drive. I often carry items that are fairly heavy.


Worst Features

Fix the cupholders.

down from a Denali to a Rainier and
have to say I am not dissapointed.
Handles great and much easier to
maneuver and park. Very Quiet ride.
