Pros

Car looks, rides/drives, and handles great. Lots of room in the interior and trunk. Comfortable to ride and drive in and drives smooth.

Cons

Starting to have issues with things in the car. For example, driver side window quit working, not heat or AC blowing.

Even With The Couple Issues I'm Currently Having, I Still Love The Car. — I really love my Riviera. When I first had seen it on the lot I knew I wanted it. The white paint job was flawless, great looking, and bright. The interior is all burgundy with leather seats. The interior was also flawless. It was the cleanest and nicest interior I have ever seen in a vehicle as old as this car is. For being a 1995(almost 20 years old), it only had 100,058 miles on it. It ran and drove great and it still does(minus the couple issues I have currently). Overall the best vehicle purchase I have made yet.

Pros

This body style is 19 yrs. old but fits right in with todays styles. The ride is second to none and has ample space inside. I find that the controls are well suited for my type driving. Gas mileage are reasonable especially since the vehicle has a 20 gallon capacity tank which makes rode trips less worrisome.

Cons

When things began to go bad especially electrical..  it take certified mechanics with Riviera experience to work on the vehicle. This year model apparently was the test model and several minor things will need attention. I also own a 98 and its not as problematic as the 95.

Overall I Am Very Impressed. — First my appreciation for the Buick brand and especially the Riviera. Previously I owned a 75 85 and (95 we still own) which were purchased new. The 95 I am referencing is my comments is one purchased from a private owner.

I Love This Car To Death Just Wish It Came With A 100,000 Mile Warranty Like Kia! — I really overall love this car. Its got me from A to B multiple times even when there were problems already going on but I had no time to fix them. This car has truly been through hell cause I pushed it harder than I should have at times. Also I let certain repairs go for too long while still driving. Long story short, the car is dependable, reliable, and for being 18 years old it still looks pretty stylish. The good old Rivi is the best buy of my car buying career hands down.

I Love My Ride, Most Comfortable Vehicle I've Owned. — I've had great times in this vehicle. I just wish buick would make it again with the same look. This car was so futuristic when it was in production, it looked odd then, but would go over very well now, but keep the same body style, don't change it. Every make and model looks like everything else today. You cant tell a Cadillac from a Toyota anymore. Seems everyone is driving a car that looks like all the rest. we need something different, yet affordable.

Best Luxury Cruiser Ever — This car is an absolute pleasure to own and drive. Still a head turner after all these years. Most folks just cannot believe the comfort, power and modern styling for a car of this age. This car was selected as the Riviera Performance Group cover car for 2012.

Best American Made Car I Ever Had .. — I went to look at the 95" rivera when they first came out, it looks different from every angle ...Took a test drive and was amazed at the feel, ride , performance compared to the cadillac eldorado I had at the time ..I loaded the car up with every option , the msrp was 32,500.00 ; very pricey I thought at first .. I could have boughta BMW 3 series or a C -class mercedes for around the same price ..Overall the Buick in appearance , ride ,looks , and wow factor I bought the Rivera ...Its ashame Buick didn't market the car right ,they had a gem and didn't realize it ....PS I still own the car ,its been garaged kept & looks showroom new ..

Worth Every Penny It Takes To Fix..at Some Point It Will Be Brand New Again — I love the way this car handles and accelerates. It is the most luxurious ride ever. Body style is awesome. It has every option I can think of; however, the 95 seems to have a lot of mechanical problems. I have already put over $3000 in it, but it's worth it to me.

A Fantastic, Rare-ish, Underappreciated Buick. Not For Your Grandpa — I absolutely loved this car, but then again who doesn't love the first car they ever purchase. It was surprisingly quick, with a 3.8L supercharged V6 under the hood. With a couple simple modifications including performance tires and front and rear strut bars, handling wasn't too bad for such a large car. Large also means there was a huge amount of space in the front and back. Best of all though was the comfort; at highways speeds the car was incredibly quiet and just drifted over the bumps in the road.

95 Buick Riviera 9 Out Of 10 — I would say this car was built pretty good. The design is like no other, and the pure quality is up there with Cadillac. I loved this car with all my heart. The only problem I had with it was that it lacked in the performance department, but over all it's a nice car to own, it will last as long as you take care of it.

Nice Mix Between Performance And Luxury — it feels super heavy, but when u get on it it definately has some go to it haha. It actually performs just as well as the new charger and an 87 corvette, once they actually got the motor in the car. nice inside, great highway car, not so much stop and go traffic.
