The best car that have had, will keep it tol I am

Great car for towing and my v8 is a screamer, it has 140000 miles and runs like new. Love the car and was sorry that Buick quit making them

3.4

Good for the money

I currently have a 2010 Mountaineer and I have driven older Mountaineers. The Rainier has a lot of body roll which my 05 Explorer did not have, It is low on Interior room and not the smoothest ride, The 5.3L V8 had tons of power and It is a quick car with this engine. Value is good because you can find a used one for $3000-6000 and they have better reliability than the same year Explorer.

5.0

Best Mountain rig I have ever owned!

This all-wheel drive is so quiet I find myself Whispering when I'm driving it! It has been a very reliable vehicle and I feel very safe driving it up into the mountains and on back roads. I am so happy I own this vehicle!
