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


We have taken the Rainier on two long
trips and are impressed by Buick's
version of the
Trailblazer/Envoy/Bravada. It is a
worthy addition to the GM line that
provides a great balance between
pampering and practicality. This is
the third vehicle I've owned with an in-
line six. Why aren't they available in
more models? GM needs to put this
engine in a Buick sedan with a
Continuously Variable transmission
(CVT) for the ultimate in smoothness
and power combination before the
internal combustion engines are phased
out completely.

Best Features

The attention to detail is evident. The time spent in Ergonomics paid big dividends. For example the exterior lights can be set to provide perimeter lighting upon exit which is very useful.

Worst Features

Add a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) option.
