I Dont Miss It — The acceleration was ok, braking ok, handling great. It just needed to have less oil in it. It was great interior. It had a touch screen cd player and the exterior looked like a granny car. Gas mileage was ok. The fun thing about this car is long trips just to cruise.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I loved how comfortorable the car was riding in.

Cons: I hated that it looked like a granny car.

A Pioneer In Touch Screen Use And Easy To Maintain Makes The Riviera A Great Boat-tail Buick — This car has always been faithful. it got me there everytime. the rivi never left me in need of a tow. it has been cared for with alot of tlc. it uses a CRT screen with touch control for climate, radio, dash display, and diagnostic systems.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: ryde like a pimp!

Cons: not alot of power and it has some things that are hard to maintain; it is unique.
