Super Reliable

by Car Fan from Chicago, IL on Sun Sep 10 2017

This vehicle is spacious, dependable and comfortable. It is very easy to maintain. The most that I have had to do with this car is change tires. replace the battery and repair the brakes. The gas mileage is also good for a vehicle of this size.

One tough car.

by Vette from Washington, D.C. on Fri Nov 09 2012

This has to be the strongest car ever built without being a truck. Smooth luxurious ride, comfort and able to haul and tow. An unusual vehicle. Last real full size station wagon made.

One of Buick's best!

by Mr. Buick from Suitland, MD on Thu Sep 13 2012

Bought the Roadmaster in 2009 and found it to be probably the best car I've ever owned. I've driven Buicks all my life uncluding Skylarks, Rivieras and Electras and this is by far the most comfortable car I've ever driven. Car has been extremely reliable and gas mileage is surprisingly good for a car this size. No recalls for this year except wheels lug nuts not tightened properly at factory. I would recommend this car to anyone who likes a real full size sedan and wants a trouble free, reliable automobile.

Everyone who can afford one- GET IT

by Purrl from Mansfield Oh on Thu Sep 12 2013

If you drive the highways and byways this is one safe car. It has actual metal and a real frame, not a unibody. Ya hit a pot hole your liver isn't damaged, the dynaride is spectacular. No leg cramping front or rear, plenty of room if you have flamingo legs! And a real trunk, boy ya can pack it up with stuff, you can eat in their to. And mine has a real tire, not a freakin donut thing. I bought mine a week ago and wouldn't trade it for nothing.

Best car deal around.

by Roadmaster Lover from Michigan on Sat Sep 01 2012

A great car and a great value. Lots of car for the money and one of the best cars GM ever made. A $6000 gem that would take $40000 in todays money to duplicate.

Reliable Roadmonster

by Erin's Dad from Central NC on Sun Jun 30 2013

The last truly American driving machine! Very ample V8 power, and great fuel mileage for a big car. The ride cannot be beat! Luxurious interior with leather seats and all the buttons. The most trouble-free car I've owned and have only done regular maintenance . You can drive this car all day long on the interstate. It is truly a road car.

Classic l996 Buick Roadmaster Wagon

by Wagonman from Kansas City Mo on Wed Nov 13 2013

If you want a very useful vehicle, not only for passengers, but also close to the hauling capacity of a pickup, this is your best choice. With the LT 1 corvette V8 engine, plenty of power, nice smooth ride. A REAL automobile. Great for road trips or about town. Try to find one with the lowest mileage, then do any repairs needed, and this baby will last you a long time.

Our Take on the 1996 Buick Roadmaster

IT WAS TIME to say goodbye to the man and the car. The man was my father, Daniel T. Brown Sr., who died June 20 at 83. The car was the Buick Roadmaster, which expired this summer.

The two shared more than season of departure. They were big, conservative and peculiarly American. They had attitude.

A lifelong teacher, my father understood the importance of discipline, work, merit and serving one's country. For Daddy, that also meant "buy American," which mostly meant buying General Motors when it came to cars.

My father and late mother, Lillian, owned a number of GM automobiles, mostly Chevrolets. When they came into a bit more money, Daddy wanted a more substantial car, "a big Buick," he... Read More
