Best SUV Ever
By Mac on


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


We have owned our 2005 Ranier CXL AWD for about 14 months. It is by bar the best overall SUV we have ever owned. The ride quality is outstanding, the handling sharp, the performance excellent, and the carrying capacity fantastic. Overall we get about 20 mpg on the highway (70 - 75 mph) and about 15 in town. My wife likes it so much that I seldom get to drive it except on trips. It is one of the quietest vehicles I have ever driven. The size, ergonomics, features, and performance are just about perfect for the two of us. Our friends enjoy very much when we take the Ranier, going out to dinner.

Best Features

Power pedals -- my wife loves them. XM radio, heated / memory seats, and the moonroof.

Worst Features

Add the power tilt/telescope steering wheel from the Cadillac STS.
