by Dwj on Dec 19, 2002 Vehicle: 1992 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD
This vehicle is very reliable and still
pulls 20 mpg. Maintenence over the
past 150,000 miles includes an
alternator change(which is a weak link
on most GM vehicles, ball joints - you
can't grease the top joint. Spark plug
wires,rear u-joint, fuel filter, and
muffler. The smart track works
flawlessly in snow. Talk to the
dealers, they don't see too many 92's
shadowing the door for service.
My only complaint when I first got the
vehicle was body roll w/factory tires.
Invest in Dunlop Radial Rovers or
Michelin LTX's. I've had both.
Michelins are queiter but pricy. The
Bravada will handle much better and is
safer in emergency manuvers.

This vehicle has been so dependable,
even with high mileage it still runs
great and gets consistently 21mpg in
all driving conditions and pulling a
little box trailer.
It isn't the best 4wd vehicle for when
we hunt in rugged terrain BUT it has
not left us in trouble.
I would buy another 1992 again if I can
find one with lower mileage.
Mine has over 210,000 miles and is
running great and we hope to get many
more mile from it.
The only complaint is that for our
family of 5, it is small for long trips
but we manage.
