Do any other cars share our same trunk cargo net or is it Riviera specific?

That's exactly what I did. Unfortunately, most of them don't have the mounting nuts but I think I'm just going to find wing nuts.

Nice, I'm in the city but I'm on Long Island every weekend either at captree, bellmore or obi.

Did I do something wrong because this does not seem very effective?

No, they are pretty useless.

Wow that's in genius, I guess I will have to jerry-rig it.

They are kinda useless and kinda not useless. They serve as a trunk divider moreso than a cargo net. They will hold 3-4 bags of groceries in themselves. I find that stuff in the Riv trunk generally stays put, this will keep the stuff from moving around the trunk too much during spirited driving.

Totally agree, I bought some stick on hooks from Walmart which worked great.

There is one other thing. You should find a couple net tie-downs on the plastic interior trim panel that covers the speednuts that hold the taillights on. Kind of up in the right and left corner. If you fasten the net there and to the tiedowns that are in the trunk floor, that is how I set the net when I am holding grocery bags. The bags then sit against that plastic panel and the net does hold them there. For the other odd stuff in the trunk I use one of those large-ish plastic under-bed boxes to hold it all.

I'm very familiar with those hooks from taking my tail light out a few times to look for the leak I had LOL, this is what I ended up doing.
