Personally i absolutely loved my Riv i took great care of it, when i first got it i was ecstatic it looked great with a nice blue paint job with a white soft top with white pin striping. A lot of people said they did not like the CRT screen but to me it added so much prestige when people got in my car and asked me what it was (then i would go on to list all the features that my car offered(Power seats Power windows Power locks Rear air ride sapinshion, and all the features of the touch screen) it made me a proud owner) it had 4 wheel disk breaks

I bought the car off a an old family friend for 800$ after i wrecked my Mitsubishi Lancer. I was expecting a clunker and some time spent in the emergency lane on the highway with the hood up but i was very wrong. The first few weeks I would wake up in the morning, get in the car and think 'this is the day it wont start' but aside from a few minor repairs the engine never failed me. The gas mileage could have been better but all the other features definitely made up for it. When a friend would ride with me they would be surprised to see a 1989 model car with a touch screen computer in it, automatic everything, and a very comfortable interior. A very good purchase for the price and i would recommend one to anyone!

This a just a fun ride! Heads turn when you are driving around town! You see “they remember” look in their eyes ! It was a flashy vehicle when knew and it stood for a luxury vehicle back when it was new! Great new features as the display area! It still works! Great detailing in the dashboard. Wood grain features!
