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


Driving this SUV is fun. Handling is supurb. The quiet inside is next to none, that is outside noise is near "0" except for very loud noises. The layout inside makes everything easy to get to. Sight line to instruments is very good. Comfort in all seats is very good and there is enough leg room in the rear for a six foot plus person. Cargo space is good. The wheel well splash guards should be put on as a standard feature and not an option. This vehicle has been built with the persnickety driver in mind. Thanks for doing such a good job on this SUV. I often forget that I am driving an SUV because it feels so much like a car. Great job!

Best Features

My favorite feature is the seating area. The seats are very comfortable with the 8 way power seats and the heated seats adds extra comfort on long trips, heat eases stress on the lower back. Laminated windows make the quiet so enjoyable with less road noise. Very quiet, very quiet.

Worst Features

Looks outside. Dual exhaust should be added to add some flair to the styling. More than the two types of wheels should be offered. A wider wheel and tire should be added as an option just to give it a better look.
