Hopefully that might explain why I've got lifeless and feedback-free steering, it just might be a rebuilt unit in there. I know for a fact that the master cylinder isn't original, which might explain my lifeless, feeling-free, and non-linear brakes

It'* drivable. But absolutely nothing to rant and rave about. The 6-year older Toyota steered and braked lightyears ahead of the Bonne. The Nissan fares just as well.

The Magnasteer in my Rivi is a pretty good setup, but not perfect. Sometimes it makes weird noises and varying effort at low (<5MPH) speeds. It does firm up nicely once at speed, but is still a tad soft.....but that is what I expect from a 1st gen steering enhancer in a luxury car.

My Vibe has the most connected steering feel of any vehicle I have owned (inlcuding the Cobra.) Even though it is WAY slower than the L67, it is still a blast to drive.

check out the forums then scroll down to the riviera section.

The first generation magnasteer did have its issues. Mine on my Riv also acts funky at times. I get a bad vibration when driving at slow speeds and turning (such as backing into a parking spot, etc.) It only happens occasionaly, not all of the time which is a good thing.
