"This has been the perfect car for me.I have owned cars, suv's, vans and this by far is the best city and hiway vehicle I have owned.It is so smooth, quite and responsive. Mileage (V8) is the only negative.
I have driven every suv on todays market and none can compare.Many of todays high cost suv's are truly junk.
Most have the gas cap on the passenger side which just proves how abusive they are to the driver because of the safety,dangerous gas pump fil-up, don't consider handicap and just poor engineering."
"I absolutely love my Rainier. Functional and classy. We have 2 large dogs and I love the fact that the rear seats fold completely flat for extra cargo space. Bose radio is always blaring in my car. Ride is nice, comfortable and quiet. Handles wonderfully in the Michigan snowy weather. I always feel safe and secure in this car. Moon roof is lovely in the summer and use my heated seats just about all winter when commuting to work. overall the negatives are small for me. Cup holders drive me nuts because they are in the way of the shifter if you have anything in there. Also, the navigation is difficult to use and I always had to pullover and still spend 20 minutes trying to figure out how to get where I wanted. Just ended up buying a Tom Tom instead... V8 is so nice to have too! Lots of power. We did have some electrical problems for a few months (still under warranty) where it wouldn't start. Was in the shop repeatedly until it was finally figured out. And honestly even when I had to have it in the shop 2 times in one week, my love for this vehicle is so great that my biggest complaint was being without it. I have owned this car for 3 years and it will be a sad day when I no longer have this car."
"Overall the vehicle is wonderful in many ways. Only thing I didn't like about the car - is the center console. The coffee cup holders are placed by the gear shift making it difficult to use the gear shift when a coffee mug was in the holder. Only other disappointment was no change tray... other than that - the vehicle is great! Love the turning radius on this car!"
