A very reliable machine..pulls my boat great! Comfortable.Classic look! Great ride. Still running well at 138,500 miles. Figure investing in keeping it in top shape...but much better than car payments and depreciation on a new vehicle! Love it!

11yrs old and still going great

118,000 miles and still a nice truck to own. For me this one was the best. Previously owned a 1999 & 1992 as well.

I hate this car! I have had so many problems..... Transfer case motor went 3x, brought it back to dealer, turn signal didn't work. Bad ground, The front differential seized up and stopped me dead in the road. Had to flatbed it back to the dealer.The replacement costed $2,000. Sway bar links went bad in the front and back.replaced the back ones. Fronts still need to be replaced. The cam shaft positioning sensor went bad making the check engine light come on.That needed to be replaced along with two tires, tie rod end, and a thermostat housing to pass inspect. $600 for that. Now the trans. is slipping, pass wheel bearing going bad, front breaks are bad, and there's a strange rattle underneath.

Not just another Trailblazer

I will forever miss the Ninety-Eight, Rocket 455, Bravada and the Olds empire entirely. This is an underrated SUV that rarely gets mention as a result of its relatives from Chevy and GMC. You'll never ever mistake this for a Trailblazer if you've driven them both. A luxury AWD SUV that fits the wallet nicely. Despite claims, resale values remain superior to its brothers.

Excellent truck

I purchased new in 2002 and have 75k miles on it. Original brakes and tires. Just past inspection 12/08 in Virginia. I have towed boats and trailers. No problems, no rattles, no electrical issues (except replaced headlamps). I can't imagine what more you would want. Purchased this truck because Oldsmobile only had 6 options everything else is standard in 03 plus 60 mo zero financing. Excellent product.

We have enjoyed our Bravada excepted for a recurring transmission slippage that gives you the sensation to go over a bumpy road as the vehicle starts to accelerate. There is also a loud metallic noise that I have not been able to find the origin. It sounds like a loose hatch door, or loose braking caliper or an heavy piece of metal rattling when on bumpy road.

Good Ride, but Not Dependable

I love the ride of this SUV, but I have taken it to the shop numerous times in the past 1 1/2 years for electrical problems. I am going to have to trade or sell it.

Love it!

We just purchased our new Bravada and I love it. I never thought I would own anything other than a Ford, but after this I want to get my hands on a 2004. The Bravada is a beautiful truck. It has a great ride and looks sporty! Too bad Oldsmobiles are gone I would gladly buy another (brand new not used).

After 27,000 miles the vehicle has no pick-up, engine races when you accelerate. The A/C has failed multiple times - but only when Ambient is greater 85 degrees. The rear window wiper rarely touches the glass. The windshield wiper malfunctioned dispensing a galln of fluid on the road while the vehicle was in motion... don't get this or it's cousin the trailblazer.

Bang for Your Buck?

The only negative review comment that I have is that Oldsmobile gave so many of the vehicles away that they did not hold their value like the Trailblazer. For Instance, an equally equiped Trailblazer will still bring in a Blue Book Trade-in of $24K where the Bravada will only bring in $20K. So if you are in the hunt to pick up a nice used trailblazer that is loaded up you will get the exact same vehicle under the hood and inside while saving a premium $4K.

I'd LOVE it, but!

I really enjoy my Bravada, it's luxurious, comfortable, quiet, and RED! I have auto start & the heating system, etc., is great here in Alaska. BUT....I have had a little rattle that 5 visits to the dealer have not cured, which is very frustrating. This has been there since the car was almost new- -and it's only six months old now. VERY annoying and inconvenient. A car that costs this much should have NO vibrations, chirps, squeaks or rattles!

Pull a pop up camper and it handles it very well. Camper weighs 2900 pounds. Gas mileage on my vehicle is very good for this weight vehicle. I get 23-25 on the highway. I get 20.5 towing the camper.

This vehicle steers and handles well, is quiet with a car-like ride, and fun to drive. There are lots of standard and optional features. Our choice was between a Bravada and a Rainier. The Buick dealership told us the only differences between the Bravada and the Rainier were the extra material to deaden noise, wood-trimmed metal door handles, Buick grill and optional V8 engine. The inside of the two vehicles looks the same. The Buick dealership told us the ride and driving abilities are the same, the parts are the same, and you can have the Bravada serviced at a Buick dealership. With all this in mind, we bought the better-priced Bravada.

We've been very pleased with everything except the gas milage- we're lucky to get 11 mpg in town, 19 on the highway. We call it the car for dummys because it does everything for us, including turning on the wipers when it rains! It performs really well, and is the quietest SUV around. It has more than enough power, and is fun to drive. It even does well in the snow and ice and one doesn't have to hassel with putting it into 4WD. We weren't big on buying American, but with a bumper-to-bumper 5 year warrenty, we decided that this was a much better buy than essentially the same SUV from GMC or Chevy (with only a 3 year warrenty).

The ride quality with the pneumatic rear springs is outstanding. Better than most autos. The inline 6 is smooth & powerful. No wonder it is rated one of the top engines by automotive engineers. Brakes are best I've every used. Response is perfectly proportional to force applied to the pedal. The ABS stops fast & true, even on snow-packed surfaces. Handling is very responsive. The stuff about back-end sway in the twisties is true, but this is a truck, not a sports car. The only downer with the Bravada has been an inability to match EPA mileage ratings.

I just bought this and I absolutely love her. She is luxurious, spacious, and powerful. She can also tow more than most other SUVs in her class. It's a shame that Oldsmobile has to leave the market when they have such great cars.

I love my Bravada. I have a '98 with almost 100,000 miles on it and have only had oil changes and standard maintenance. It has been extremely reliable. Very comfortable ride. Good size for carrying bicycles, skis, etc. I am thinking about replacing it and if I do, it will be with another Bravada.

I purchsed a bravada back in march 2002 and so far it has 10,000 trouble free miles.The only times it has gone to the dealer was for a reccall and oil changes.The truck drives and handles like a car.The motor is as smooth and refined as any import car with twice the price tag.I was not looking to purchase an american car or truck,but after test drivig the bravada my mind was instantly changed.Kudos to G.M.for finally producing an affortable worthy world contender.

We purchased our Bravada in June and have been utterly addicted ever since. It is wonderful; the build-quality issues all the magazines harp about are nowhere near as bad as they are made to sound. The SUV is very practical, luxurious, VERY powerful, has a wonderful Bose sound system, and the AWD is extremely useful. It drives nearly as well as our Aurora 4.0. Wonderfully done, Olds and GM!

Great SUV!

We have had numerous quality problems. The dealer has yet to fix one on the first trip. One problem was that the "brake" lite on the dash came on while driving. It would only go off if we turned the car off. After 3 trips a short was finally found We also have twice replaced the plastic molding around the drivers inside door handleand it still keeps popping out in the matter of 3 days, we had the drivers power seat track break and the fuel guage stop working The vehicle got so far out of alignment that the front tires were ruined. The access door to the oil filter has broken.

My new Bravada was purchased after driving a dozen other SUV models. The ride, room, quality and price after rebates, made the Bravada a clear choice for my needs. The ride is as good as the BMW and the acceleration is as good as the MDX. The demise of Oldsmobile possibly was a negative factor but I felt that the OLDS name will always be a positive one.
