1989 Buick Riviera 3.8
The car needed a service when I bought it.
Brake discs and pads front and rear, and the usual service stuff.
The interior has some signs of wear; cracked door panels.
Several plastic parts have cracks, but considering the age and mileage, it's actually OK, it still looks awesome...
This car was imported, in 2006, from S.C.; there was no rust at all...
It's a cool looking car, one of the best looking cars from the eighties.
The ride is very smooth and quiet, and the handling is OK; far from a sports car, but predictable.
Seats and interior comfort is great; I love the touch screen.
I've bought this car for winter driving, but I totally fell in love with this car. Now I don't have the heart to put it thru salt and snow, so I have to find another ride for the winter.
The car doesn't indicate the high mileage. I'm very impressed with the overall quality.
If you ever get your hands on a car like this, don't hesitate; BUY IT!
Wouldn't you rather have a Buick?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

USA here... have owned a few Buick/Pontiacs, but never owned a Riviera; I should make it a point on my bucket list. Love the 89-93 body style, always made me turn my head in my youth. Enjoy it friend, long live your mighty Buick.

In my opinion, 1971-1973 Riv's were the best looking cars ever.

I agree, but it's a different car from a different time. Maybe the '89 Rivieras are not true to the concept, but in the eighties, it did have contemporary qualities with a touch of nostalgia...
