Summary:

Comfortable excitement

Faults:

Engine pings going into overdrive.

The tape player does not work anymore.

General Comments:

Enjoy the comfortable ride and easy to reach controls. People say that the gauges are too small, but I feel they're right where they need to be and easy to read.

Even though it's not the LT-1 engine the 5.7 has enough power to turn the big rear tires into smoke. I can't imagine what the LT-1 would be like.

Summary:

Attractive power with extraordinary comfort

Faults:

New dash panel at 85,000 miles. Odometer, oil pressure gauge and several lights stopped working.

A recurring problem has been the rubber trim molding on the sides of the car. The trim continues to start falling off every year now. I haven't lost any trim parts yet but it is a nuisance and expensive to keep having the trim re-applied. Does anyone know of a fix for this problem? I have noticed most Roadmasters have the same problem.

General Comments:

I love this car. It is comfortable and powerful. It is a beautiful car and still looks like new.

I've been driving it for almost 4 years and still want to drive it forever...

I went to live in Saudi Arabia and took my 1992 RoadMaster with me. I love driving it.

My 92 Roadmaster had the same problem with the rubber strips coming off. I ended up taking them off completely, and it's not bad looking without them. You may even like it better!

Clean the molding strip and chrome strip. Then sand the back of the molding strip and chrome trim. Glue will not stick to a smooth surface . Worked great on my 95 Road master.

Try using Liquid Nails adhesive to put the rubber strips back on the car. It's inexpensive and works great.

Faults:

With 82,000 miles only an alternator has been replaced. Otherwise, absolutely reliable. I expect many more years from this car.

General Comments:

I'm very sorry the Roadmaster has been discontinued. I would love to have another one.

I have a 1992 Roadmaster Sedan. It had 42,000 miles when I bought it Sept 2000. It now has 55,500.

I have noticed that I get a ping when it transfers into the final overdrive gear.

I have replaced the plugs and distributor cap and rotor, not the wires yet, and it still does it.

Any recommendations?

The Roadmaster engines run their best with PREMIUM fuel. Spend the few extra cents, and enjoy the performance.
