Really Decent car
By Nick Warhead on
1996 Buick Riviera 2dr Coupe
I bought the car for $1750 at 164,000 miles. The car still runs great and is reliable. I had to replace the radiator and the upper control rod bushing. It has an oil leak probably coming from the top end. Other then that, the car always starts and drives, and has not given me any trouble. I've had a lot of cars that couldn't get past the 130K mark without blowing up. I feel if taken care of, I could get at 75,000 more miles on this car.
It is really comfortable and I like the way the dash is centered. The trunk is nice and big as well.
The paint rubbed off on a few spots for some reason. Some of the lights on the heat/stereo control cluster burned out. Stereo is not that impressive. Acceleration is not as impressive as the Chrysler Concorde I had, but at least it didn't blow a head gasket at 101K...
