90's Luxury — Good looking car with sleek body lines. Stereo and wheels are dated both will need upgraded. Power can be added simple with a pulley change. Exhaust tips are something definitely needing change. Slotted and or cross drilled rotors with a good set of pads like EBCs will be a plus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 3800 series 2 supercharged engine.  FWD.  Loaded with factory options.

Cons: Develops electrical problems including the VATS.

Very Under Estimated, And Sometimes Misunderstood. You Have To Own One To Know. — You don't need a super-charger in this Riv. She will pin you to your seat in a second. Very responsive, and Very dependable as well. She is a true pleasure to drive one of my friends says "I swear she sprouts wings and seems to float on the interstate" She is a love it or hate it car, but I love it!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nothing else on the road looks anything like it!

Cons: Absolutely none
