"Simple controls, does not show wear and tear easily, turning rage is good for U turns, very dependable. Interia lights are on a timer so your battery doesn't go dead... Too bad this model is discontinued."

"I have own this suv for a while. I am extremely pleased with it's performance. I would recommend this to any one that wants a classy suv. I also own a FORD EXPLORER, and I think Buick Rainer is a much better SUV. Just keep the oil changed and you will have a SUV, that will last a very longtime.Sensational ride and comfort."

Shes a beauty

"Around 94000 miles the lifters started chattering and soon after I had to have it repaired. Always changed the oil and filter every 3000 miles. Never drove it hard, mostly in town. Not sure the Vortec V8 325 is built as good as the chevy 350."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Just put new tires on it and it's like brand new. Everything has been reliable. Very few repairs for a truck with 108,000 miles on it. Quiet and great ride plus all the bells and whistles. It gets about 18 MPH average but about 20 MPH on hwy. Solid truck with all the luxury. Wish Buick still made them because I don't like the Enclave. I'm happy with my old truck."
