Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

1st car, possibly last a well
by Riv Master from Illinois | December 12, 2009
My Riv is as old as I am (19), but still runs like new. People see this car and think it is a beater, until they actually sit inside. Mine is loaded. The Rivieras were made to last. I would highly recommend this to a first time car buyer or even a Winter car. It handles like a dream. I could not be happier with what I have gotten out of my Riv.
I am not an older driver, but rather a relatively new driver. The riviera was the first car i bought on my own and i loved it. It drives like a dream. Most of my friends laugh at it until they get in and then they can't believe how well it handles and rides. It is a great car if you are looking for something as a starter or if you want old school style.
