The vehicle is very reliable and it drives well.

The vehicle is extremely comfortable to drive. It has a v8 engine so it has a pretty good amount of power to it as well. I find that it does have some small electrical malfunctions and is definitely not good on gas. The hardware of the vehicle seems very cheaply made as well. The back left passenger door handle has broken twice in the past 5 years and it has needed to be replaced. Many other pieces of hardware has been faulty as well. It has been very reliable in the 4 years that I have owned it though.

Comfortable ride for straightaway.

Love the interior of the Buick rainier, roomy and comfortably for a larger person. Ours came equipped with OnStar, but we never activated it. Honestly, however, it steers like a brick. Corners send be sliding around in the leather seats like someone just picked up the back end and threw it around the corner. Very jerky and almost feels unstable. That said, it was wonderful on the ice and snow with all wheel drive. Gas mileage is a bit on the low side, 19.5 mpg combined.

The Buick rainier is nearly flawless.

We have had no problems since purchasing the vehicle. It drives smoothly and fairly quiet. It is comfortable with individual controls for heat and air conditioning and seats that warm along with electric controls for comfort. The paint is in good condition and the interior is leather and in very good condition. It is known to travel as much as 300 km, this is something we need.
