1993 Buick Roadmaster sedan limited the big one from North America
Fuel pump failed at 190k miles, which is located in the gas tank failed at about 190k, a spendy fix ($200.00) and told not to run it on empty to help keep the pump immersed and cool.
Starter, alternator, battery cables failed at 200k+, but who's complaining?
Leather seats are giving away to Texas sun, I should have put on window tint.
Pinging got unbearable, a simple timing adjustment fixed that.
I have noticed the transmission sticks under full/hard acceleration, not sure how to address that, other than to be easy on the old girl.
I swear I am blessed to have acquired the 93 Roadmaster. My dad had it for nearly 10 years as a company car. He kept it immaculate. In 2002, his boss sold it to him for $3000. with 170k miles on it. Dad then gave it to me as a gift during some tough financial times. I love the car and highly recommend it to anyone wishing a powerful luxury ride of the century.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 93 Roadmaster with 250.000kms, and works fantastic. Extremely economical to run very low maintainence. Best car ever!!! Rob from Nova Scotia.

I am Rob from Connecticut with a 92 Roadmaster wagon. The rubber side bumper strips must be removed, scraped with a chisel and cleaned with lacquer thinner. Same for the chrome side moldings that they are glued to... scrape with a chisel and clean all the old adhesive off with lacquer thinner. This is a miserable job only for the most devoted restorer. Buy 3M double sided tape, NAPA #03609 and apply it to your rubber as it was from the factory then stick it to the chrome moldings using pressure and a heat gun. This fix is better than factory.
"Dynaride" shocks can be replaced with NAPA air shocks #MA-717. =Rob email@example.com.

I have a 1992 Road Master and when we accelerate the transmission has a whining noise and can't seem to find out anything on the computer scope. Can anyone help?

Sometimes a whining noise from the transmission is the speedometer gear. Cheap and easy fix... Although, it might be something far more serious.
