The only good thing I can say about the car is that I feel safe in it. The body is solid unlike my old car. But we have owned three cars before this and we have never had a problem like this one. I've had a dodge truck and Suzuki and have had problems but not this! The car fell apart very quickly. I couldn't get my daughter out with her car seat because its two door. The battery dies and we have to charge it every other day and its our fourth battery we have bought. We have been to two different mechanics that say the alternator is perfect ( brand new) the car does make a squeak and I can hear when my husband pulls in the drive way every day. I have never had a car eat so much gas... EVER. I wouldn't suggest this car to anyone
Story
No. We cant take it any wherr because it stalls and breaks down every where we go. The only good memory I have is taking our daughter home for the first time but we had no ac!
Pros
It offers passenger comfort and it drives very smooth so the baby passes out the second she is in it. Its easy to drive and steer when it decides to not break down. The body makes me feel safe. I feel like it will not be easy to hurt us in speeds under 30 mph. The room in the car is decent for the people in the front seats. It is pretty easy to drive for being such a long car. The seats are leather so it is really easy to clean incase of a mess! And that's good with a baby! The car is low but not too low to where it hits the ground. Perfect height for Florida weather. And the trunk is very... (more)
Cons
Where do I start!? The gear shifter has to slam into park for the car to turn off. Something is eating all of the power in our battery - we buy so many batteries it's ridiculous!!! It is the worst car to have a baby and take out of the back seat! I have taken my daughter out of many cars but this one was a handful!!! The car makes a god awful sound the second you start up the car! The dash board is entirely big for a car! Its the biggest and most ugly dash board I have ever seen. The ac is broken and it will not work. The car is a piece of crap and I haven't been so unhappy with a car. It ... (more)

This car was such a blessing in that it was so solid and reliable. I almost felt that it was indestructible. When we finally scrapped it, she had almost 300,000 miles on her. It had good pickup, was a quiet ride, and had nice leather seats, with a lot of room. The trunk was extremely roomy. Everything about the car seemed to last a long time. The interior never looked worn. The exterior had several dents, but were hardly noticeable because the color (silver/gray) seemed to help hide them.
Story
The door was so long and heavy that sometimes when my youngest child opened it, the door would get stuck in our front lawn. An adult would have to extract it to close it.
Pros
1. The spacious interior and large trunk were a definite perk. 2. It had very good pick up. 3.It was very low maintenance- it lasted almost 300,000 miles and had the original transmission. 4. Had a nice interior that never cracked, faded, or showed much wear.
Cons
1. Did not get very economical gas mileage. 2. Towards the end, tended to use a lot of oil. 3.It was only a two door, which was very inconvenient when our kids were young. Also the doors were unusually heavy and large. We had to be careful when opening them so as not to hit other cars when parking. 4. Did not need many repairs, but when it did, because so much was computerized, it tended to be expensive.

1997 Buick Riviera - Great value/fun for the money.

The 1997 Riviera was/is a great value for your money in terms of looks, performance, driving quality and over enjoyment. The supercharged engine is usually very reliable and has a lot of low end power. The driving dynamics are comfortable but not floaty due to the fully independent suspension but don't mistake this for a sports car as it's not. With that being said, it can hold it's own in the corners. This is a large car that does not feel large however, it's only large in the outside and in terms of trunk space. Inside is more of the feel of a personal luxury sports coupe and don't be surprised at the lack of head room due to the sleek design. All that disappears when you put your foot into it and experience the supercharged engine.
Story
When I first got it, I took it out for a neighborhood drive. While at a quiet neighborhood stop sign, I floored and actually scared myself at both wheels peeling out for 3 seconds or so, then I had a huge smile on my face.
Pros
Powerful engine. Sleek design. Huge trunk space. Reliable.
Cons
Poor paint quality in certain areas around these model years. Doors are very heavy and hinges suffer over time. Low headroom.
