Review 3 of 8

Price Paid:  $30000.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 CXL AWD

Strengths:
Feel and quietness of ride. Inline six cylinder. Advantages of an SUV with the ride, feel and features found in higher end sedan.

Weaknesses:
None yet.

Summary:
Chose the Rainier over similar mid sized models (Envoy, Explorer, 4Runner, etc) because of the superior ride, quietness and car feel in an SUV. Price for value was excellent. Outstanding standard options.

Review 4 of 8

Price Paid:  $20000.00 from Lindsay

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Buick Ranier

Strengths:
Ride, comfort, power, gas mileage, features, looks, handling, performance and made by GM

Weaknesses:
None

Summary:
Wonderful vehicle. The best looking, best performing SUV on the market. The Rainier has 12000 miles on it and has no problems. Lots of power and good mileage, about 18 city and 22 highway. Very good for a 6 cylinder with a 3.73 rear end and a 4600 lb. weight. Very smooth ride and very quiet. It handles extremely well and a long day of driving leaves me not tired at all.
I chose this vehicle over Trailblazer and Envoy because of the air ride suspension in the rear over the coil springs.
It is such a shame it will not be made after the 2007 model year. Dodge, Ford and the cheap imports do not compare to this vehicle

Review 5 of 8

Price Paid:  $20000.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2005 SUV

Strengths:
Quiet, luxury ride, very strong V8, lots of features from navi to AWD to power everything including a nifty built in air compressor. Very handsome lines.

Weaknesses:
You can't buy an SUV with a V8 and complain about MPG, but that is my only complaint.

Summary:
Bottomline: Best deal for a used SUV. Bought this 2005 in Dec. 06 with 17000 miles for about 50% less than orig. sticker. Loaded with every option; a real pleasure to drive,
