They don't make em like this anymore. Roomy, stylish,quiet, comfortable a few words to describe the car. This is the second Roadmaster I have owned and I love it as much as the first one. Car rides like it's on air and has velvety smooth surge of power from the 350 LT1 V8 engine. Mine also comes with the G80 limited slip differential. The engine is both powerful and efficient I can get up to 28 mpg highway. This car is such a pleasure to drive much nicer than other generic vehicles. GM should not have stopped making the B and D body cars, and replaced them with Roadmaster wannabes like the park ave and lucerne. car does not smoke during cold start nor does it consume oil or need to be jump started if left for a month not being driven and the engine can go 300,000 plus miles before needing a rebuild. Vehicle is not perfect however it could have used disc brakes in rear instead of drums and windows sometimes fall of tracks, limited slip differential should be standard. Theres alot to love about this car, parts are cheap when it needs work and it is very safe in an accident. Overall a great and highly underrated vehicle .
This is the kind of car GM builds better than anyone else. I bought this to replace my older GM boats (1972 Electra and Riviera). I remember not liking these when they were new but now they seem to have a presence when compared to the other cars on the road. The LT-1 is fantastic as is the transmission. Very good power and roadability. I have to agree with other reviewers that the interior is somewhat poorly designed especially the door panels. The plastic front and rear bumpers don't seem that strong and chrome trim on them tends to come off (it's chrome tape.) I still give this car high marks for all around comfort and reliability.
Purchased the car as the "family" car,
big enough for four to travel
comfortably with plenty of room to
spare in the trunk. My wife and I are
in our 30's and have two young
children. The LT1 engine is a delight
and quite a surprise to those who think
they can blow by you on the highway.
This baby moves! The most comfortable
car I've ever driven on long road
trips. After 95000 miles the engine
doesn't drink a drop of oil between
Freeway ride, power, comfort, safety,
Cheap plastic on interior, poor fit &
finish quality, corners cut on
This car has the power to go - it can
give a mustang a run for it's money.
Even though the mustang may be a
current model and my wagon is 8years old
(94). The only thing that I hate is the
mpg. If I unleash all the horses the
gas mileage is pocket denting. The
vista roof is great. If you ever see
this car or a close relative -
Olsmobile Custom Cruiser(91-92) 170BHP
Chevrolet Caprice Classic Wagon(91-93)
Give it respect - It was built to last.
