Body, Interior & Misc., August 15, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles first sold, or currently registered, in certain states where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because fluid may enter the driver's door module, causing corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative. The short may also cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing an odor, smoke, or a fire. As of this time, the remedy plan is still being finalized and a notification schedule has not been determined. The GM recall number is 12180.

2006 Buick Rainier Reviews

I love my Buick Rainer CXL! Only problem I have is I can't find a Chilton's manual!!

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.

A real car and truck , low noise inside really pretty car nice ride has no problems at all.

I love my Rainier. I have purchased it new in 2006 and have 30,000 miles. It has never had any repairs. I change the oil and rotate the tires regularly. It is very comfortable and it get about 21.6 mpg on the highway.
