The car offers awesome, comfortable ride for up to 6 people with the smoothness and power rivaling the President's limo. Planning a long trip - this is the best vehicle for it! And yet it is surprisingly agile thanks to its powerful V-8 engine, super light power steering and tight turning radius. While it already has plenty of cargo space, you can fold down the rear seat and get a flat area the size of a full bed. The wagon has the same platform/length as the longest edition of a Chevy Suburban. Its large windows are great for navigating in traffic and sightseeing. (Please note that the third row (rear facing) seat is not available for use. The trunk area is for luggage/cargo only.)
The car is fully loaded with all modern amenities such as ABS, power windows and locks, power and heated seats with adjustable height, tilt and lumbar support, A/C with climate control, cruise control, variable power assist steering, etc. Most importantly, the tape adapter is included so you can listen to your iPhone, iPod or maybe even Zune in addition to FM radio.
This is a non-smoking car!
If you need a smaller car, please check my Hyundai Accent: https://turo.com/rentals/cars/dc/washington/hyundai-accent/277622
Or this Camry: https://turo.com/rentals/cars/dc/washington/toyota-camry/120103
On weekdays I strongly prefer to drop off the car in the morning around 08:00AM (to make it to work on time), and pick it up at the end of the rental around 05:30PM in central Washington DC. With this being said, please feel free to send a booking request - we may well work out a solution!
P.P.S. It appears that such cars can no longer be added to Turo. I suppose you've got here a pretty unique chance to drive this last truly American wagon as they were discontinued in 1996.
Please review Turo's late return, extra miles and missing gas policies.
If you wish to return the car early, or it becomes apparent that you are running late, I will greatly appreciate it if you let me know as early as possible so that I can adjust my plans.
What about the late return or miles driven in excess of the daily allowance of 150 miles?
Let's agree on 20 minutes of courtesy time for the late return and 10 miles or less on over-the-limit mileage.
What about zoned street parking in Washington
If you are a DC resident, you can easily obtain a visitor/temporary street parking permit; all it takes is a simple online registration: https://ddot.dc.gov/page/visitor-parking-pass-program
Otherwise, the car does not have a zoned parking permit.
The RoadMaster was exactly as we expected. Great family trip down memory lane. Siarhei was a pleasure and accommodated us when our flight landed early. Highly recommend. We had so much fun we will try to get the car next time we are in town.
Sergei went out of his way to coordinate with my odd schedule. The car was clean inside and out. The car was quite the head-turner. It drove very well and was quiet on the highway. I got 19 mpgs on my trip, and for the big V8 it has I was satisfied. Overall I had an excellent experience. Спасибо Сергей!
Such a fun time with the Roadmaster! Perfect for our weekend beach getaway. Sergei was extremely easy to coordinate with and provided instructions with great detail that made the rental super enjoyable.
The woody was great. Kids did a roll of the eyes at first. But this was great... 6 people and plenty of space for anything you might want... owner was very helpful and easy to work with. Car was clean and in great shape considering the year. Fun experience!!!
What can I say permanent smile on my face loved every minute sergie was a on time pick up and return faultless. Riding round dc for our trip to Washington was an absolute pleasure I will cherish for a long time . A credit to sergie and to turo to let us experience an American classic automobile station wagon for our trip keep up the good work thanks again terry and family London England
I loved The Roadmaster so much that I didn't want to give it back at the end of my trip! I wanted to drive something uniquely American for a small road trip around Virginia with my girlfriend over 4th July weekend, and this car was everything I was looking for, and more. As every other reviewer has mentioned; it is incredibly smooth to drive, and Sergei is a fantastic owner in his communication and flexibility, which I really appreciated as a newbie to Turo. I cannot recommend him and his wonderful car enough!
One of the best experiences I've ever had on Turo. Owner was incredibly clear where he left the car (I flew in at 1am) and was there promptly to pick up the car when we flew back out. Car was clean, comfortable, and really fun to drive!
You know exactly what you're getting! Its the roadmaster, and yes it's vintage with still the modern-ish amenities like CD player and power seats. Sergei was very communicative, and flexible. One thing to note though... beware any road trip with a lot of hills! The engine seemed to struggle while in Drive when cruising around 60mph. Other than that, it's a cool car with a great owner!
It was really fun for us to drive around in this family style station wagon. It was delivered on time, was very clean, and handled well in all types of traffic. And you can't beat the price. We would definitely use it again on our next trip to Washington, DC.
From the vanity plate (says RODMASTER), to the tasteful wood paneling, there is no better option on Turo than this Buick Roadmaster. Whether you are simply looking for a way to get around DC, embarking on a weekend road trip or filming a 90s family sit-com, the Roadmaster is the answer to your prayers. After just two days of driving around in this beaut, it took all of my strength to return it to Sergei and not run away and spend the rest of my life traveling the open highway with the Roadmaster as my sole companion and confidant. Sure, you could spend your weekend in some soulless 2008 sedan that probably gets better gas mileage, but if you truly want to master the road there is only one option.
Both the car and Sergei made this rental a great experience. Sergei was extremely helpful with delivering and picking up the car at the airport for my work trip into town. Prompt, on-time, and was very pleasant to talk to.
The Roadmaster couldn't have been any better - we rode in style, and it had more than ample space which is why I rented it to begin with. Quite the comfort machine!
Sergei was a great vehicle host and the airport drop off and collection worked perfectly. He was punctual and the timing worked out great. I walked out the airport and only had to wait 2 min for Sergei to pull up. Even dropping off was great.
The Roadmaster was the coolest. Growing up in my family we had a lot of 80's & 90's era General Motors vehicles. As soon as I sat in the front bench seat, all my family memories were coming to me. This was a great rental for me to catch up with family. Everybody had a great time driving around the city. More space than I could fill, cool buttons and switches and the most comfortable couch in the city to drive around. It's that comfortable.
Loved the vehicle and host is great, I would recommend Sergei and his vehicle to anyone looking to see the city and its people in comfort and convenience.
Best. Car. Ever. Don't know where to begin - very comfortable seats with lumbar support is one place to start. Everything works well & the owner is responsive and kind. RODmaster has it all, you won't be disappointed!
Siarhei was great, met me last minute directly at the airport, and was on time for the pickup. The car runs well; it's much larger than I expected but I had never driven a Roadmaster before, so it just took some getting used to. Would definitely rent from him again!
This sweet 175hp V8 (corvette engine whatttt) rotund piece of American art was just the ticket for my Monday night escapades. Was able to fit a 90" x 36" cabinet in the back while jamming out in style. (Seriously, if you rent this car, its mandatory you bump some Feddy Wap with the windows down). Serghei was excellent to deal with - very flexible, and courteous. I would not hesitate at all to rent from him again! Car was in great shape for a 95 and the price was excellent.
Sergei is responsive and gracious, and provides thorough instruction on the controls and handling of the car. It's a beautiful, well maintained vehicle- perfect for our day trip out to Harpers Ferry. It is large and makes wide turns, but is a very comfortable ride. Sergei met us in a convenient location with the car, and promptly communicated with us when he was going to be late for the pick up, allowing us to leave the car parked with the keys locked inside so we could head home. We got lost on the way back in to DC and had to pay a very reasonable extra fee for the additional mileage beyond the 150 mile daily limit. I would highly recommend this car for your next rental!
Great vintage wagon, had a nice trip over to the eastern shore of Maryland and even made use of the cargo area on a whim when we discovered an antique chair we just had to have. It fit with plenty of room to spare.
Thank you for your car Buick Roadmaster! The car is perfect for family trip! Roadmaster drive is so smooth and comfortable for long hour drive.
Again Thank you very much! I will love to drive your car again!
Great classic car with an amazing amount of space. Never received so many compliments from strangers on a car in my life! Sergei was also great in coordinating pick up and drop-off. Highly recommended!
Perfect ride for a weekend camp-themed getaway. Nothing else turns heads quite as much as a ride in the Roadmaster! For a car that is twenty years old - it's pretty smooth and has plenty of space for stuff. Highly recommended. Big thanks to Siarhei for dropping off and picking vehicle up.
The Roadmaster was a fine ride and held all 6 of us quite well. She's a bit like driving a ship, but didn't take too long to figure her out. A little bucky between 55-60, but mostly smooth. The rear facing back seat was comfortable but a little warm as the air doesn't get back there well. Sergei was very accommodating and great to work with. We drove to Mt Vernon one day and Annapolis another-- we weren't daring enough to drive into DC--but the metro worked great for that--Thanks for letting us borrow her for our trip!
Need a comfy car for a road trip? Want to experience a piece of American culture? This is your machine. I had a blast driving this car to Richmond and back for the NASCAR race, tons of room for everything and really smooth ride on the highway. Sergei dropped off the car very clean and showed up early so we didn't have to wait at all.
The engine is very smooth and the big car feels quick even by modern standards. The drawback with the big American V8 is that we got about 15 miles per gallon, and the car requires premium gas. You won't be saving at the pump, but I would say that this car is worth it! It's a really competitive rate for the car you're getting.
This car exemplifies the sentiment: "they just don't make em the way they used to."
Sophie (the car) was great, gave us no trouble whatsoever. She was very comfortable and fun to drive. And on top of it Sergei (the owner) was AMAZINGLY cool to work with, really very helpful. We had a blast and would do it again anytime!
The Roadmaster was in great condition. Everything worked and it was very clean on the inside. I drove for about three hours straight and there were no mechanical issues or even weird noises. And it's so comfortable! The price is great for its size and it has all the amenities of a new car.
Best car rental/sharing experience I've ever had. Sergei was kind enough to meet me near the Metro stop of my choice. He communicated clearly via text throughout the day. At the end of the day, I picked him up at a Metro stop, and he dropped me off at home.
I don't expect him to extend this courtesy every time, but I appreciated it very much! I'll definitely be back.
Excellent Car! Super stylish and lots of fun to drive. I used it for a trip to ikea and it fit a ton of furniture! Definitely more spacious than your average SUV. Easy pick up/drop off, great service all around.
As others have mentioned, Sergei was incredibly helpful and accommodating. I had to learn quickly in order to safely drive a car this large through the streets of DC, but it was so great to have the freedom of a vehicle on my vacation! Everything worked exactly as planned - no problems whatsoever! Great first Turo experience!
The Roadmaster is awesome!! Truly a master on the road. I needed a car to take to Atlanta that could haul everything I needed to set up a booth for a trade show (which included 5 2x7 doors). The Roadmaster was perfect. It accommodated everything perfectly, was a comfortable ride, and I didn't have to rent a huge van.
Sergey was really great to work with. He arranged pickup and drop off at a time/place that was convenient and was helpful and responsive.
I'd definitely rent this vintage beauty again in a heartbeat!
