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


My Rainer with AWD is about the most
stable 'truck' I have ever owned. It's
road manners are excellent, and I was
suprised at the sure footedness when I
took it off road. I was sure I was
making a compromise in buying the Buick
version of the TrailBlazer, but the AWD
changed my thinking fast. I took it on
muddy tracks that other 4X4's were
having trouble with, the AWD just stuck
to the path and never bogged down
Like I said before, its a very stable
vehicle on city streets, highways, and
cow paths.

Best Features

I love the AWD as it gets me out of trouble before I realize I'm even in trouble. The stylining is great, it's one of a kind.

Worst Features

Mileage is not great, but hauling around all that weight, it's understandable, but a few more horses under the hood wouldn't hurt either. I'd like to see a 5 speed automatic also.
