1992 Buick Roadmaster 5.7 from North America
A big, comfortable car with performance
Have to replace the #8 spark plug every 15000 KM.
Fuel pump died 430,000 KM.
Washer fluid system broke down 450,000.
Power trunk latch died.
My father-in-law gave us this car when he upgraded to a mini-van. At 425,000 KM it was actually lower mileage than our existing car.
The Roadmaster is a very comfortable car. It's just like driving your living-room set around town.
Important tip: Put only high-grade gas in the roadmaster. If it's costs you 15% extra per litre, that's okay. You'll get 25% more mileage on a tank.
Getting on the highways is great with the 5.7 litre engine. I laugh when I'm at traffic lights and some kid pulls around me into the next lane, figuring I'll be a slow startup. That's when I give 'er for all she's got and smoke their little rice-burners.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
