Review

I have own my Rainer for 3 years and love the smooth, quiet driving. But most all I love my satellite radio, I will never go back to listening to AM or FM.


Best Features

Satellite radio and seat adjustment controls


Worst Features

Only wish it had a place for a women's purse.

2005 Buick Rainier CXL AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have been reading about this model for over a year. I was so happy to find a 2005 w/only 1 owner. It also had low miles and looked brand new! Now lets talk about the ride. Love it! It handles well and it is heavy for a short SUV and I feel safe in it.


Best Features

AWD, brakes, wheel size, stereo, seat size


Worst Features

Hybrid for gas savings.

Review

We'd been driving Cadillac sedans for years and switched to the Ranier SUV. It is very comfortable and pulls a trailer very well even in the mountains. We love the Ranier.


Best Features

Easy in and out. Love the Bose stereo system and the GPS.


Worst Features

Better placed cup holders. Less noisey suspension adjustment. We could do without the sun roof.

Review

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.


Best Features

Comfort and ride. Incredibily smooth. The V-8 engine is a rocket! I'm getting between 15 and 17 miles per gallon which I can't complain about.

2005 Buick Rainier CXL Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Easy to drive and maneuver in parking lots. Plenty of power in the 6 cylinder engine. Doesn't cruise on open roads as well as the LaSabre I owned previously but is much better on mountain roads. I like the inside comfort and controls. Plenty of storage space in the rear. Very smooth and quiet ride.


Best Features

Easy to drive around town and maneuver in tight places. Also, very smooth and quiet ride.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy.
