Purchased used, base model and decent shape for a 20 year old car. Huge trunk, plenty of room inside and the lovely LT1 V8. The car accelerates well and stops quickly, surprising for a 2-ton sedan. Parts and maintenance are no problem, but don't bother with a GM dealership. They don't know anything about proper Buicks anymore and they give you excuses not to work on it. This car and the Chevy Caprice are sisters, so there's lots of support out there. For modders, this is the perfect sleeper: the 9C1 police kit will fit this car. My car is stock Buick and a LOT of people underestimate the performance! The only thing is, of course, fuel economy. The LT1 is a thirsty beast, but worth it.
Outstanding performance and gas milage! Ride is very smooth, although handling is a little soft. LT1 V8 rocks, stero is excellent (even better with aftermarket radio). Tons of performance for the money
Definitely the engine and MPG.
Only area that I wish GM would have put more thought into was the Optispark distributor.
This car is so awsome. A lot of us do
not like FWD and this RWD has a lot of
punch! Note that Chrysler 300 is now
going back to this design! If you use
restraint on the gas and hold the
reigns tightly, you can squeeze 29 MPG
on the highway and that's impressive
given the ease at which this car
glides to the posted limit. And
comfort and room abound!
I just love this car!
Gotta be the "LT1"! :)
Mute point, since it was untimely
scrapped and GM lost its only RWD and
is the only one now of the big "3" not
to offer one.
The 94-96 roadmasters feature a highly
Tweakable Corvette engine also know as
the "LT1" at stock it is 260hp but with
little effort and a few hundred dollars
it can easily be 300. it rides like a
dream and has the power of a corvette,
a big trunk means some room for some
subwoofers if u would like, all i can
say is HAVE FUN! go testdrive a
power everything :) stock sound system
isnt too bad with a cd player upgrade ;)
do a search on google for "Impala ss
modifications" and goto the impala ss
superstore the 94-96 has the same
engine as the roadmaster and all engine
parts will fit on there too. some
roadmasters have been tweaked to over
400hp. the engine is highly capable!
