1996 Buick Riviera Supercharged 2dr Coupe
Bought with 88,000 miles on it, paid $1500 over private party value at time. Have put 45,000 miles on it in 19 months. Has every option. Gets 28.5 mpg. Has great acceleration and is quiet inside. Work needed at purchase: slow leak in tire, tiny oil cooler line leak (caused by sitting and which went away first week I had it), cd player ocassionally skips. Done so far: top off supercharger oil once, 2 new tires, air filter, Broken since I bought it:absolutely nothing. Still has orig. spark plugs. I drive 47 miles each way to work, and it smooths the road and quiets the trucks I pass. I planned on $600 a year in repairs and 23 mpg when I bought it, so I'm very happy because repairs are zero.
Supercharger - this car can leap off the line (6.2 sec 0-60), heated seat, very comfortable leather seats, climate control and radio controls on steering wheel, power moonroof, auto dim mirrors, huge trunk, heated and cooled cupholders, mileage, 560 mile range, rear disc brakes, lack of problems
They dont make them anymore. This car was tops in quality in 1996 when they made it.
