General Comments:

This is my first "large" car and first Amercian car. It is in a word fantastic. A super performing, uncompromisingly comfortable vehicle. It is not practical for families and the like.. but for the individual to enjoy every little or long trip to spread out in and have personal storage room it is superb. I absolutely love this car and it is very competitive with others of its features and quality. I traded in a 99 of the hot selling Acura TL for this car for comfort and performance. And despite the $4,000 loss and additional $10,000 to buy I am pleased as can be!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hello Prakash what you are looking for is called a Silver Arrow which was a special edition in the final run of 1999 Rivieras. Only a small number, something like 300 were made.

I have one in prestine condition with only 17,000 miles which I would sell for $3,000.

Oops, I meant $30,000.
