This car was bought used with 24,000 miles on the odometer. A high
mileage '96 Riviera was traded-in for this car. I was attracted to the Riviera
by the fabulous exterior design by Bill Porter. It is a very comfortable "road
car."; I've taken two 4,000 miles trips in this car.
Handling would be much improved with stiffer suspension and "tighter"
steering. My purchase of an extended warranty turned out to have been a
wise expenditure. Major transmission work at 25,400 miles was necessary
and the alternator was replaced at 28,500 miles.
All things considered, I still enjoy this car. It's a landmard design.
I enjoy the multitude of power features, however I have no use for heated
seats in this climate. The automatic adjustable right rear view mirror is a
great aid in parallel parking.
As stated above, the suspension should be stiffened and the steering ratio
adjusted for better road feel.
