A great running fast luxury car
When I first bought my Riv it rode like a dream. I could not believe it. After my 1000 mile warranty was up, about two weeks later, I started to have problems. The first problem I had was that both belts broke. One was shredded the other was cracked. After I got that fixed the car still wasn't running as well as when I first bought it. The problem was one of the spark plugs was fried and two spark plug wires were cracked. I got a full tune up which I couldn't do myself because you need a lift to get to the back three spark plugs. This cost about two hundred fifty dollars to be done by a dealership. A few weeks after that both front bushings went bad which throws off the control of the car. Then the rotors and brake pads and shoes wore out this cost me almost six hundred dollars to fix. This is still less than six months after I had the car. Now I am in need of four new tires which aren't cheap because of the type of tires that are needed for this car. A problem that just happened today is that my traction control is going out which I have no clue why. In between these problems the car has run great!
The car is very fast and can out-run most other cars I have faced. The main problem I have had is that it over steers a lot. This is a car I would suggest buying, but, it can give you some problems which you would have with any other used car because you are just picking up someone else's problem. That is why they got rid of the car in the first place. At least that is why I got rid of my Celebrity.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
