1997 Buick Riviera Supercharged 2dr Coupe


Bought my grandparent's Riviera a couple months ago. They bought it new in '97 and it only had 70K miles in '08. For $3000, that's a great deal. Seats are super comfortable, stereo's nice, decent power and MPG. Steering is light as a feather. Gas gauge doesn't register correctly below half tank, but with over 300 miles per tank, that's not too big a deal. Definitely not a sports car, but it's a major upgrade from my old '93 Mazda 626.

Best Features

Leather seats are great. Engine and suspension encourage conservative driving, which helps get better MPG.

Worst Features

Why suggest improvements when Buick isn't making these and American automakers are heading toward destruction?
