Very good shape and runs very well!

This auto has been very reliable and I have kept it up very well It is ready for a long trip! It has almost new Michelin tires new brake and front end alignment good gas mileage!


Sexy Mama

I love her. She's expensive to fix, but doesn't need it often. A dream of a ride. Very, very comfortable. I turned off the supercharger to get better gas mileage, about 20 mph, as there is plenty of power without the supercharger running. This is a heavy car, which I consider safer than the fiberglass, lightweight cars. The trunk is deep and long, thus holds a lot. My mechanic today (8/10/17) said Buick is discontinuing (or discontinued already?) the Riviera, which should make the value increase. He said this vehicle gives Cadillacs a run for the money.


A work of ART! "Never seen anything like it"

This car is the ultimate Sport/luxury cruiser. Technology way ahead of it's time with the solid reliability of the old classic cars. Great in the snow and ice, and still cruise down the highway at speeds of 100 mph+... like you were on your leather, living-room (reclining) couch; watching a Nascar race!


Most comfort driver in 30 years;very dependable.

This is 2nd Riv,i.e 96, and 97 owned. Rides most comfort.drives easy, steers simple, never mechanical difficulties, replaced battery in trunk; expensive but only every 5 years,;highway speeds 75-80 gives 20.3 mpg; Performance in-city driving 14-16.5 mpg. leather interior most pleasant, sunroof,supercharger all work extremely well; maintenance costs low..no repairs. Sold 96 and am on 97 with just 60K on mill.....nothing as comfy and reliable and easy ride on mkt;including e320cabr...would buy again!



The only problems have been the sun roof motor and the cd player. It is a dream to drive on the freeway. It never lacks power or comfort. Like driving a pillow.
