Who says American vehicles are not great!

by Nothing but Buicks! from Dallas, TX | September 10, 2009

I bought my Black 05 Rainier V8 used from the original owner. Awesome vehicle! It now has over 100K miles and you never would know it. I did have the airbags replaced recently on the rear suspension the truck would not stay up. Rides great now. The truck gets a lot of looks and comments. :) It tows great as well!

Another Great Buick

by Buick Lover from Syracuse, NY | April 7, 2009

This is the third Buick I've owned and all have been great. Little to no repairs and very reliable. I've had the Ranier for 2 years and it is a pleasure to drive. Very comfortable with plenty of room. Great performance whether in thecity or on the highway. My next car will be a Buick again!

Wow! Beautiful vehicle

by Bargain Hunter from Hayward, Ca | June 22, 2008

I think this vehicle handles exceptionally well and has a smooth ride. Acceleration power is sufficiently responsive. Mine is loaded with all the extras and so far isn't too difficult to figure out. The stereo programming buttons are a little confusing but after less than one day of driving, i think i've found most of them. Some may find all the buttons confusing. anything else i've had a problem figuring out is only by lack of experience (Onstar, bluetooth). This is a beautiful vehicle and even has a compressor built in in the rear side panel to inflat the tires! Comes with manuals w/instructions for every feature including onstar.

More bang for the buck

by 1st time Buick owner from Hartford, CT | March 30, 2008

Lots of high end features. Higher ride like a SUV but rides comfortable like a car. Might not have purchased new because of the original sticker, but it makes for a really great ride now. We bought as a certified vehicle, so that gives us an additional sense of well being on the purchase of this vehicle. Love everything about it. Very classy. Strong & even acceleration. Mine has adjustable pedals also, which is great for my wife's 5 foot hight. They are 2 driver save positions, so she is programed in to have the pedals & seat adjust automatically when she gets in. Dual heat/air controls for both front passengers saves alot of arguments also. It even lets you know when you need an oil change. For a 2005 this vehicle came equipped with alot of extra features!!! no complaints. Always heard that Buick made a solid vehicle and now I am inclined to agree. Feels solid on the rode, with a quiet ride .Very pleased with our purchase.

The Money Taker

by AJ from Georgia | October 5, 2007

I bought this vehicle and heater coiled busted antifreeze in front and back left me standing on side of road, vehicle was 2.5yrs old 47K miles Buick or dealer would not help with repairs, had it in prior for check engine light they could find problem. I prefer companies that have customer service and stand behind their products.
