1996 Buick Riviera Supercharged 2dr Coupe


This car has been as good a car as one could ask for. Things have went wrong but car kept going down the road until I could get it fixed. I always traded cars every two yrs buying 2 yr old cars or less. Feel this car was killed off by buick dealers as no local dealers within 60 miles carried this model new. I had to drive 120 miles to purchase this one. And within two yrs car lost 50% of value. This car has turned more heads than the other 22 cars I previously owned. Gas mileage is very impressive with size of car and supercharger. the car is supposed to use high test gas but this car has never been run on it for over 150000 miles with no change in performance.

Best Features

This car was GM's attempt at not producing cookie cutter cars and feel they were very successful with this one. Hard to think of anything I don't like!!

Worst Features

cd and tape player both never worked well mechanically, but sound very good.
