Excellent US Car
January 20, 2014
Bought a 18 yr old 95 Roadmaster Wagon recently at a really good price for 2k. It came from the first owners and was well maintained. Runs strong, powerful quiet engine, transmission super smooth (never had a better one), suspension still exact like new. Since I have the same model since 5 yrs - a 91 with a smaller engine - I knew what to expect. I never had a car with better value for the money, and now I even have two. My first one never failed, has a steady gas mileage of 21 / mixed, and is just a luxerous fun to drive with lots of space - better and quieter than 95% of the newer cars at 25% of the price. I love the interior of the 91 better than of the 95, but the 95 has a towing package and tows my 5000lbs trailer with ease. In the 91 I never had to put anything else in than regular maintanance, a new headlining and some leather upholstery. Paid 2.2k for this one, invested 1.1k for interior refurbish, brakes and tires in 35k mls / 5yrs. Can't get it better. The 91 has 155k mls now, has excellent tech state and vg appearance. The 95 has 160k mls, even better tech state and appearance, and needs no money right now at all. To me the best value I ever got, and fun to drive.
