Used Buick Riviera Rating

1997 BUICK RIVIERA
I have actually had 3 of these cars, and they have all been great. I just can't give up the combination of power and comfort of the Riviera. My first one lasted 253,000 miles before it rusted out, the second saved my life in an accident, and I am currently driving my third. I do about 25,000 miles per year and regularly get 25-30 mpg on the highway, and there is plenty of space for luggage. The Riviera has been extremely reliable through all my miles, aside from a few electrical quirks which were a little pricey to repair (fuel gauge sending unit, cabin temperature sensor). The engines are almost indestructible if you treat them well-- my 253K-mile engine was sold to a guy who put it in his own car and it's still running strong! Oil leaks are common from the intake manifold gaskets, but once you replace them it's solid. Also if you can find an auto-leveling sensor, buy it for when yours goes bad (there aren't any new ones left). The Rivieras are getting old and hard to find, so be prepared for a few headaches trying to find parts or someone knowledgeable to work on them, but take care of yours and it will take care of you. I will say have never been left on the side of the road in this car. I would highly recommend the Riviera to anyone.
