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


I currently have about 70,000 miles on the SUV. My major expense was for replacement of blower motor for the AC system at 65,000 miles. At about 55,000 miles it was discovered the dip stick for checking the transmission fluid was corroded and fell off in the reservoir. This should have been covered by a warranty regardless of the miles. The paint for various buttons on the radio started wearing off showing the white undercoating.

Best Features

Air-compressor hose feature. Memo recording feature. Sunglass compartment.

Worst Features

Paint on radio buttons wear off at about 50,000 miles. Gauges for speedometer, RPM, etc. are very difficult to read day or night. At night there is not enough illumination for the gauges. Traction could be better in snow.
