1998 Buick Riviera Supercharged 2dr Coupe


Just plain love it. Easy to work on. 33 mpg on the highway. Drives like a small car even though it is a monster. Bought it for myself but the wife stole it once I got it home. The sloping hood is what sold her. She has always been afraid of a big car. What sold me was the car and its history. I am so happy with this car that I am now buying a 99 which will replace a 2000 Cadillac Eldo.

Best Features

Ease of maintenance. 33 MPG on regular fuel. Looks. Last year. Getting very hard to find. A real eye turner (Pearl White, chrome wheels, vinyl roof, don't see many like that on the road)

Worst Features

Blind spots but hey get some cat's eye mirrors. Front rotors tend to warp if you don't know how to drive in the mountains. Parts are getting a little bit scarce. Interior body trim could have been better. Having to pull a motor mount to change out the serpentine belt. Struts are good for 30k
