1993 Buick Roadmaster Estate 4dr Wagon


Review

Got this wagon from a friend at our head office. It´s sited in Skellefteå, up north in Sweden. Me and my girlfriend drove it from Skellefteå to Piteå about 100 km north of Skellefteå. It was a nice ride on a Swedish, late summer day. Four days later we started off to Stockholm, a trip for about 1000 km. The only problem was a small leak from the heater an some shake from the front brakes. The fuel consumption was 11.6 liters per 100 kilometers, very reasonable for this fullsize wagon. At home in city traffic it wants more like 12,5 to 16.0 liters per 100 km. Some tuning and a light gas foot will help to lower that.


Best Features

All the nice options, and the size. A real car as they should be built, even today.


Worst Features

Rear compartment side panels, plastic material, gets pale and cracked in the sun. Miss the construction where the rear window slides down into the tail gate.

Review

Look out the windshield, and the view
across the hood is one of limousine
feel, deep color, stead V-8 quiet and
cush.

Sadly, it gets worse as you move back:
the middle seats are almost a cruel
trick in their shallow depth, so you're
never quite sitting (unless you are
shorter than 4 feet).

Then the back, which should be all fun,
has a nice seat, but crappy, flappy
plastic covers over the spare, with
locking screws that give up, stick out,
and snag on the folding of the rear
seat up and down.

But, it handles, for a wagon,
amazingly. It's fast, strong, smooth
and durable. Last of the classic old
indestructible V-8 monstermobiles.


Best Features

V8, power everything, skyglass, girth, width, heft, bulk, solidness.


Worst Features

Bring it back!
