Good suv overall

Vehicle: 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD

My family got this car back in 2002 when it had 60,000 miles on it. The biggest problem is the A/C kept breaking even after fixing it. It's good for towing things, we've towed 4-wheelers, a boat, and even a honda accord from Utah to Texas. Around 150,000 miles things started to fall apart little by little, and by 160,000 miles it became a money pit. Overall a very good car up until it hits higher miles. Not the most fuel efficient, but it's powerful and fun to drive, especially off roading.




1st car

Bought my 96 bravada and it need some work. I replaced my upper intake gasket, common. Put new front drive shaft in and new brakes. Its my first car its perfect. Tons of room for wen me and my buddies all pile in and go fishin stuff like that. Very comfortable ride. Love the leather interior. No rust yet no Major problems, and I beat on it. I live in the snow belt, put new snow tires on it and handle the snow like a beast. No complaints at all! I love this car it couldnt be more reliable. And all these people sayin Major problems this and that I say find a better mechanic beca this vehicle is a tank! Ive also takin it muddin a couple times haha never got stuck never broke anything! Get on.




155k and still going

I bought my 1996 Bravada in 2001 with 38000 miles on it. I've had the typical domestic car repairs, but overall this has been an incredible SUV. Plenty of power. I pull my 2k lb camper through the AZ mountains 4-5 times per year without concern. My Bravada currently has 155k miles, A/C blows ice cold, rides like glass at 75mph, and it is the most comfortable of all mid-size SUVs I've ridden in. Overall, I believe this is one of the best built SUVs on the market for 1996. I will drive this until the wheels fall off, but at this rate that should be well over 300k.

I purchased this Bravada used for $8,000 with 42,000 miles on it. It's been great for me so far, only the spark plug wires needed replaced. It handles the snow here in PA just fine. Plenty of cargo room in the back, seats are very comfortable, no real complaints.

What's New for 1996

Nice truck, but how many luxury SUVs do we really need? Only a few things about the Bravada differentiate it from the Chevy Blazer and GMC Jimmy: the seats, front styling, trim -- and the price tag.
