Bought my Roadmaster with 38K in 1997.
Now has 315K and STILL runs and drives better than the other cars we have owned.
It is the go-to car for towing our travel trailer, and everything else you can think of.
Absolutely no rust and the paint still sparkles.
The largest repair bill so far has been for a new radiator.
When the engine and transmission finally quit I am happily going to put new ones in and keep going.
This car owes us NOTHING.
Power everything and the kids love the Skyroof and the rear facing third row seat
GM needs to learn how to build an interior with less plastic
Loved the car and sold it with 220,000 miles on it. Hauled everything we could throw at it or in it. Rust was a problem. Had new trans, fuel pump, radiator, exhaust, a/c compressor, shocks. Had all the usual changes as brakes, tires, ran Mobil 1 in it. MPG: 19 to 20 on a trip, 17 to 18 around town, 10 to 13 pulling 2 horses. 14 to 16 around town in winter.
Auto temp setting. The cushie ride. Lots of power.
I'm 6' 3'', need more room up front. Wife is 5' 2'', needs a better seat height adjustment. Seat memory would be nice.
I just purchased this car from the original owner. It is in great shape. I have put duel exhaust on mine because it only had a single exhaust this increased my fuel economy from 17.29 mpg to 17.79 mpg in town. The interior of these cars are amazing comfortable! My plans are to tint the back windows, a set of 15 inch draglites from American racing and a great sounding stereo. My kids love it! They would rather ride the dragon wagon than our new Taurus!
The ride is awesome! Great power for a huge car!
Should have been a little taller in the rear with such a long wheel base, as I have installed air shocks to stop the dragging in and out of parking lots with 4 people in the car !
Since I bought this car, I have nothing but enjoyment out of driving it. I am the father of 3 kids so I needed extra seating capacity and storage room also. This car is very quiet and smooth running for a car of it's milage. It is loaded down with every feature for a price that everyone can afford. I really do love this car alot and affectionately refer to it as "the beast". It rides smooth as silk, tough as a tank, may use a little too much fuel but the ride is well worth it. And maintenance and repair on this car is easy and inexpensive which I think makes up for the fuel cost. If I had the money to buy a Hummer, I would buy this car instead.
Smooth ride, interior room, power seats, cruise control, power windows, 350 V8 motor, smooth transmission, climate control, roof window, rear seat, cloth seats, tilt wheel, rides great in snow, can hook up kids video game up in back seat with 20 inch TV on road trips without disturbing driver.
