No Other Ever Like It
By Michigander Buick on
1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate 4dr Wagon
A great car and better wagon. Terrific performance with the Corvette LT1 260hp v8, 0-70, both pulling from on ramp and speed changes 70-80...like a train. Very comfortable if have all power seats with memory. Great amount of space - 4x8' sheet fits with tailgate shut...kids like rear facing 3rd seat...can take long trips without fatigue...very good economy, far better than SUV or mini-van, plus very stable in wind. GM blew it when stopped making...now the smaller not as good Dodge wagon has taken over. The transmission is also mated very well to the shift points of the v8, much better than my supercharged Park Avenue, which is jerky by comparison.
The v8 power, smooth ride (Michelin tires only!), comfortable seats, good storage capacity, fuel economy for its size by far.
Bring it back- somehow!!! Never happen. Disc brakes on rear, better shock control. Not much to improve!
