Best Midsize GM SUV
By WinterDrive on


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


This is great SUV for long distance traveling, towing and light off-roading (which means beyond graded gravel). Winter driving performance has been outstanding. No mechnical issues barring an overiced rear wiper. V8 performance is great, with decent mileage (19+ on the highway). Interior is a bit underwhelming for the price, but functions well and has also stood up well (no squeaks or rattles).

Best Features

V8, AWD, towing capability, comfort levels (quietness, ride, nav system, individual FOB settings, personalization, OnStar, XM, self leveling suspension).

Worst Features

Redesign the running boards - they catch all the slop (slush, snow, mud, etc.).
