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


Review

My Buick Rainer is loved by both my
husband and myself. We have had zero
problemswith it and have not been back
to the dealership for anything. We have
a V8 which gives more than enough power
to tow our 5000 lb. boat.


Best Features

Ease of entry & exit from vehicle and the fact that it automatically levels itself when we hook up the boat trailer.


Worst Features

none.

Review

I like many got tired of driving and in
a almost prone position. The size is
perfect for my business driving and
love it on trips. The one thing I
missed was my previous car had heads up
display. I assume this will be added in
the very near future. The handling is
fantastic as you can make tight U-turns
with little effort. Keep up with
bringing us great vehicles.


Best Features

For once the features blend into an outstanding system.


Worst Features

Privide heads up display.

Review

VERY smooth and quite ride. Handles
well Agree with current owner, it
could use more storage.
Cross bars for roof rack should be
standard. This seems a little cheap
on Buick's part for a car in this
price range. Same with front seat side
air bags. Would love for it to have
had the Buick famous icon (the three
holes on the front quarter panels).
This would have been the icing on the
cake for exterior.
Too new for reliability opinion. Only
one defect at delivery. The console
lock would not hold down the cover
whne bumped. New lock clip was ordered.


Best Features

Insulation equales very quite car. Smooth ride. Luxury of vehicle, both inside and out.


Worst Features

storage. Roof rails and side air bags std. Longer sweep on pasanger wiper blade. It leaves a triangle which is in driver's view. Put the Buick icon (three holes) on the front two quarter panels. Add number of gallons burned in the driver;s info. This was very accurate & useful on my 98 Blaze

Review

I love this SUV! I have owned it for 8
months now and have not had any
problems. The ride is smooth. The
features are excellent. I love the
dual function heated seats and the in-
dash 6 CD changer with XM radio. The
sound system is incredible. Everybody
that sees this SUV loves it. I get
compliments on it all the time. I am
planning on getting another one when
this lease expires. I highly recommend
it!!!


Best Features

Heated seats, 6 CD Changer, XM Radio, Rear Seat Controls for Audio and Temp.
