Ummmm.....Buick Rainier here?

Ok, I bought an '05 Buick Rainier. My understanding is it's basically an Envoy or Trailblazer, except it came pretty stacked with standard options. It has the 4.2L Vortec, and the Denali's auto-adjusting air suspension in the rear. I just don't know where to go to get Rainier specific help. I've skimmed this site, and don't even see a tiny mention of the Rainier let alone it's own forum link. Am I wasting my time here? I mean, I know you guys would all help with the things we share directly, but I'm sure the Buick engineers changed some stuff around..... on purpose just to mess me up knowing I was eventually going to buy one!!! LOL. Ok, I'm cynical. Any thoughts from you Trailvoyers?

Not only am I cynical, but I'm kinda stupid also. I looked at my post, and saw "Buick Rainier" highlighted, so I clicked on it. Well I'll be darned. There IS some info about the Buick Rainier on this site. Not many post's, but some lowly enthusiasts none the less. So, I answered my own thread! I wish all my questions about life could be answered with a simple click of a highlighted link.

yea its all the same platform just different body and standard options... there are a good amount of rainer people on here.. but all info will be the same to help ya...

so welcome to the site..

the only main difference between the rainer and the other 360 platforms are the body style.. everythign else is the same.. from the engine, drivetrain, electronics..

Thanks ya'll.... or is it y'all? Preciate the warm welcome. I'm pretty psyched about our new ride. My cuz is a used car dealer, so he gave me a web site only dealers can use. I picked up the '05 Rainier CXL AWD with 40,500 miles pretty loaded up with opts for $9,500. It was MSRP'd at around $36 something new and currently KBB'd between 12 & 14 depending on condition etc. I own an '87 GN so I'm a Buick guy at heart. Thanks again for the welcome.

Mike

Welcome to the site. You will really enjoy the Rainier, I know I have so far. My last car was a 2003 Malibu LS. I love how quiet the Rainier is on the inside.
