1996 Buick Roadmaster Limited Sedan RWDReview

Retro Bucik Before Retro Was A Trend — A traditional big RWD luxo-boat. The car floats on highways and handles well for its size. The LT1 delivers amazing power and moves the 2+ ton car with a purpose. Fuel economy is decent (14/23) and braking is okay. The styling is unique with touches of old-school Buick (and Hudson) and is much more attractive than the Caprice/Impala SS. Interior is spacious with good leg and headroom. Trunk is large but shallow and full size spare eats a lot of room. Car is solid and very well built-I've had no issues aside from replacing power-seat motor. Electronics are a huge upgrade from previous GM models. Car is fun because it can comfortably haul five people and their stuff on long trips and can still embarass a Mustang at a traffic light.

Pros: Big car with lots of power and comfort

Cons: It's not for everyone

Am Not Sure If There Has Ever Been A Better Performing Great Value Automobile. — We first got a 1993 Buick Roadmaster from its 1st owner in early 2001. After 6 &1/2 years we started looking for a 1996, since it was the last year they were made. There were no call-backs from notes left on windshields asking the present owner if they were interested in selling ! Finally we got really lucky & bought one with 61K miles !

Owner for 0 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:5,000

Pros: Since it was what we wanted, the list would be long.

Cons: Do not mind the low miles per gallon.

SComfort, ride and a LOT of power. If car and motor are properly maintained this car and motor will last over 300,000 miles. The transmission tends to have a short life though. And there were 3 wa... Read More

An Excellent Full-size Car, Wish They Would Put Back Into Production. By Will

Performance: The engine is powerful, and responsive, even after 225,000 + miles on it. The ABS Braking system is also very good, and will stop you very quickly. It is not the best around corners, but ... Read More
