I had been wanting a "Roadie" wagon since i was 16 and now that I finally have one i'm not disappointed. the best car ive owned... there are owners clubs out there for these cars (they are called B-Bodies ). parts are still readily available. i live in hilly western pa and I get 22-25 hwy mpg i have gotten as high as 28 in flat florida on vacation. the car drives smaller than it is. and is not hard to park. it will carry a 4x8 sheet of plywood with the tailgate closed. the areas to look closely at when buying one are 1. body rot particularly the 1/4 panel just past the rear tires. 2. air compressor issues (if air suspension equipped) 3. rear axle leaks 4. water leaks.
couch-like seats, POWER! since its a chevy engine its cheap to modify for even more power. has the towing capacity of a fullsize pickup. has the seating capacity of a suburban with the ride of a cadillac. the fuel economy (considering the cars size) is great.
they need to make a full size body-on- frame wagon again. they do not make anything like this anymore.
I wanted one of these wagons back in 1996 but thought they were just too much money back then. I got this one from a friend with only 25K miles on it. It drives perfectly and made to CA. from CO. for a station wagon car show without trouble and averaged 24 mpg!
The ride, the style, the LT Corvette engine, the stereo is really good for a 4 speaker stereo.
Well it's no longer made, but if it were, the interior was typical GM cheapo plastic for the day, the reason why I didn't buy one new in 1996.
This is the Titanic of American roads. The best car I ever owned. I had to search for a car with such low miles for more than 2 years and was willing to pay any price to get it. Finally got one. Totally satisfied. Seats 8 people comfortably with lots of space.
Wow, what a car. Vette engine screams. 28 mpg Seattle to Los Angeles. Hard to find exterior trim parts, I do know a place in Seattle that can make parts if you have the old one. Very comfortable. Rear wheel drive is fun.
Power, comfort, looks
This car is 12 yrs old, still in fantastic shape, no other car like it
