205,000 and still going strong!

by
Jan 31, 2008 - Updated Jul 13, 2009 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Plenty of Power, Reliability.
Cons: Trans shifts hard from 1st to second. No rear air
The Bottom Line: Great vehicle, good mpg for large V8 and still going after 200K Minivan might be better for transporting adults or larger kids.

We have had our 1992 Buick Roadmaster Wagon for over six years and have put many miles on it. It had around 100K on it when we purchased it. We are the third owners and are quite pleased with its reliability. Since we have many people to transport, our ... read more

My Estate Wagon Land Yacht...

by
Jul 3, 2002 - Updated May 12, 2003 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Luxury feel and ride, security on the road, sheer size.
Cons: Incorrectly factory-attached trim that keeps falling off.
The Bottom Line: If you can cope with the exterior trim falling off occasionally, buy any good-condition, low-milage 1992-through-1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon for the bargain of all time.

Buick built this gem from 1992 to 1996 and then it was over. For that brief, shining moment Detroit got it right. National Lampoon magazine first called cars like this "land yachts" in an article on American automotive excesses back in the 70s and they ... read more

What every car should be like

by
Nov 26, 2001 - Updated Nov 27, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Ride, size, 350 V-8
Cons: Plastic body moulding falls off
The Bottom Line: Smooth, quiet, & large enough for a family, the Roadmaster is the ultimate car. We're taking ours to California in December, and I'm looking forward to our 4000 mile trip!

First, let me tell you that I have owned 14 cars in the last 12 years (including cars driven by my wife). This is the only car that I cannot part with. I've always been a Ford guy. So when I decided I wanted a big car, I immediately looked ... read more

Last of the breed

by
Jul 11, 2001 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: BIG, powerful car (1995 version)
Cons: Absolutely none
The Bottom Line: Get one while you can, if you can find an owner willing to sell. There are no more being made.

Great buy if you want a powerful, roomy sedan with all the amenities one expects in a luxury car. Drive one of these, even a five-year-old model, and you'll be throwing stones at the Toyo-Lexuses and HondAcuras. The 1994-96 versions of this car have ... read more

They don't make em like this anymore!

by
Jun 14, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Size, interior, power, low insurance, gas mileage (for a car this size)
Cons: The large pillars and small backlight hinder vision to the rear.
The Bottom Line: The Roadmaster is a great car because it combines power, comfort, and safety in a unique package.

It's a shame nobody but Ford still builds cars like my Roadmaster. I have always owned large, full frame, rear wheel drive cars built by General Motors; which is why I was interested in the Roadmaster when my previous car (a 1982 Oldsmobile Delta 88) ... read more

1992 Buick Roadmaster Rated

Nov 26, 2000 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Great size, power, luxury
Cons: brakes, fuel economy

I bought this car used in 2000. I needed a car big enough for me and my children. I have put 23,000 miles on it so far, and several problems have arisen. The engine and transmission are excellent, but the brakes have been a problem. I have had to replace ... read more

1992 Buick Roadmaster

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: Large, roomy, quiet, like driving a recliner on wheels.
Cons: Hard whip around the Wal-mart parking lot, but I don't like Wal-mart.
My Grandfather passed away and I got his 1992 Buick Roadmaster. I thought it was a crazy piece of junk at first, but OMG was I ever wrong. This car is roomy as my living room. It's 13 years old and solid and noise free as the day it was new. The interior ... read more
