1990 Buick Riviera 3.8 from North America
Bought another 1990!
I replaced the shock/struts at 50,000 miles.
I Replaced the Coil Pack at 80,000 miles.
I have replaced the water pump twice.
I have replaced the Harmonic Balancer at 75,000 Miles.
Lost this car from tree falling on it during a hurricane.
I would be surpised if anyone has any real problem with this car. I replaced the 15" wheels (and OEM shocks) with 16" aftermarket types. It has been a gem. I have lived on the ocean since purchasing this car and have made sure that all electrical connections were "greased" to prevent corrosion. It has never let me down. Each "major" mechanical repair started with a telltale symptom, not a complete failure. I finally lost this car from tree falling on it during a hurricane. Although I am in a position to purchase nearly any other automobile, I bought another 1990 Riviera with 50,000 miles!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Do you still have this Buick? I am looking for a transmission for a 1990 Buick Riviera with a 3800 v6 engine and auto tranny with od. excellent car, but only goes in reverse.
