Bob the 2 Riv Guy

by Bob the 2 Riv Guy from New Brunswick, Canada on Thu Jun 08 2006

I bought a 95 8 years ago, I was and am still impressed with it. It now has 266,000 kms and works excellent. It is the car I have spent the least amount of money on ever, at 53 I have owened quite a few. I found a 98 with 69,000 kms so I bought it and keep the old one for my winter car. What are you going to get for a 95 with 266,000 km's anyway. I use the 98 from May until Nov, then swap them. The 95 has 4 Goodyear ultra grip ice tires which make it a fantastic winter car. I feel very confident with it. As a matter of fact I prefer it to our 2005 Mazda Tribute 4X4.

Reliable and dependable

by Riviera Lover from Boston, MA on Fri Jan 25 2013

Although over ten years old, this Riviera rides like a new Riv. All electronics work and the interior is in pristine condition. Car started easily in below freezing temperatures and the engine is extremely quiet on the road. I would recommend this car (if you can find one) to anyone looking for a smooth riding reliable vehicle.

Nicest RIV Yet

by rgfullerton from Pittsburgh Pa on Thu Mar 05 2015

I have owned my 1998 RIV for many tears now. 171,000 miles and still drives and performs like "Nearly" new. I have owned many RIV's since 1968 but the reliability has been phenomenal. Thyis has been my DAILY DRIVER to/from work and it is just a great vehucle.

Quietist smoothest riding car I have erer owned

by Dr Vic from St Louis on Sun Sep 23 2018

It is too bad they do not still make Buick Rivieras. This car gives great gas mileage, is aerodynamic and is beautiful. I own 2 of these and 2 Buick turbo Regals, and 3 Monte Carlo SS cars

very reliable

by nate from Tiffin iowa on Sun Sep 02 2007

i bought a 1998 Buick Riviera and it is amazing. i went from a 1989 firebird and the power and handling are very good . the power to weight ratio is good enough togive you confidence when passing. I got my for $2800. its a very reliable car i have replace struts and thats it. i love the bright red leather seats and dash is well put together.
