Used 2005 Buick Rainier Pricing

Consumer Rating

2005 Highlights

The CXL Plus trim level is dropped in favor of a single CXL model; a CD/MP3 player stereo is newly optional; real wood replaces the fake stuff for the steering wheel and shift knob; and various upgrades help spruce things up inside. Full-length head curtain airbags make their way to the options list, though Buick has dropped last year's seat-mounted side airbags (which provided torso protection for front occupants).

  • Exceptionally quiet ride, strong optional V8, easy to get in and out, decent off-road ability.


  • Subpar build and materials quality, sloppy handling, lacks key safety features, not enough storage space.

Best automobile I have ever owned
Most trouble free auto I have ever owned. It is quiet and handles well in curves.
Most Underated SUV
I test drove many of the SUV's including the new Ford Edge. The Buick Rainier beats them all in ride, comfort, and style. This has to be the most under-rated vehicle in its class. A tremendous used car value.
Love my Buick
I've had my Buick for four months now and I really fell in love with it. It is the most comfortable SUV that I have ridden in. The ride is like my cousin's Cadillac.
