Buick Rainier - a pleasant surprise
By Mahleen on


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


I researched all the luxury midsize
SUV's I narrowed my list to RX330,
Highlander and 4Runner Limited, FX35
and the Buick Rainier. The FX35 felt
like a station wagon, the interior is
cramped. The 4Runner rattled and
lacked the quality Toyotas are known
for. The Highlander exterior design is
dull and price is high. Down to two;
the RX330 is comfortable, luxuriously
appointed and well constructed. To my
surprise, the Rainer matched the RX330
in each category except the interior
is not as luxurious BUT the Rainier
outclassed the RX330 with its rock
solid feel. Rainer’s solid
construction, amenities and GM’s
financing make it a true value.

Best Features

The rock solid feeling this SUV gives can't be beat! My RX300 always conveyed a 'stilted' feeling, the Rainier though higher than the Lexus, does not.

Worst Features

No cargo cover. For the price you'd think they would throw it in.
