Buick Rainier Problems
On vehicles equipped with rear air springs, the air compressor may fail causing the rear suspension to sit low.
The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.
On certain 2005 - 2007 vehicles, General Motors has provided a special service policy covering the fuel level sensor, agreeing to pay 50% of the repair cost. This coverage extends for 10 years or 120,000 miles from the original "in service" date of the vehicle. Please contact your local GM dealer for more information.

The module that operates the power window and lock switches can allow moisture in, causing corrosion that can lead to a short circuit. This results in window and lock functions not working, and creates a fire risk. Dealers will inspect and replace affected modules free of charge to resolve the concern.

I purchased my Rainier new in 2006. I now have over 195,000 miles on the vehicle. It's been an incredible vehicle. The best vehicle I've owned. The only reason I'm at this site is because I can't find the low pressure port to charge my AC.
In August, 2011 a clicking sound was heard in the area of the rear passenger wheel. Restarting the car seemed to solve it. However, in a few minutes the clicking sound could be heard again. Suddenly, the problem seemed to disappear, until this past weekend when it started up again. When I tried to start the car Sunday morning, the battery was dead.
