Great and comfortable vehicle to drive.

I bought the vehicle used from a family friend, so it is really hard to say what someone else has done to it. It is got some minor issues, like the power steering pump is leaking. Other than that, it is a great vehicle that I love driving. It is comfortable and reliable. It performs better than expected (i.e. gas mileage). Again great vehicle and I do recommend it.

The sound system is wonderful and the moon/ sun roof.

We haven't had our car very long, but I like to drive it and be a passenger in the Rainier. It holds my husband and I very nicely, we both like the sound system, heated seats, dual heat control s power windows, power seats. We haven't added the phone, XM radio or the OnStar system as if yet, but considering doing so.

2004 Buick Rainier is a great family car!

I love the air ride in my vehicle and how it drives. The heated seats and quality AC are lifesavers. Our puppy loves the rear AC/heat. I love the air pump in the back which is great for flat tires as well as how roomy the back of my suv is when I lay the seats down. My vehicle has no known serious problems.
