Review

70000 easy miles and I've replaced the fuel pump, alternator, tensioner belt, both front wheel bearings, ball joints, oil cooler lines, stereo speakers and now the transmission is slipping. This vehicle has never towed anything.


Best Features

Nice ride when it's running.

Review

This is my second Bravada, my other one, a 1993 (get's much better mileage by the way) perfect size for our family, not too big and bulky like the surbaban and ford's the confort is exceptional and the drivability is great, plenty of power for the mountains of Colorado and the stytle to go with it, my only negative is gas milage <16 MPG


Best Features

Ride Power confort

Review

Needed a 4x4 for this winter. So far we've put 2,000 miles on it, no problem. Is completely loaded, paid 6800.00 plus NJ tax for a total of 7200.00 and then did a complete tune up and oil change for 300.00. It had 106,000 miles on it. Engine is strong, tranny tight, brakes perfect. Looking for another one for my daughter.


Best Features

Heated seats, moonroof, secure feeling.


Worst Features

More head room.

Review

I like the vehicle overall, but it has had a lot of mechanical problems since I purchased it used exactly 1 year ago with 58,000 miles. I have replaced the AWD system, serpentine belt, alternator, the idler arm, rotors, and front bearings all in a year's time. My husband USE to have a 97 Olds Bravada and had most of the same things go wrong with it around 48,000 miles. We could no longer afford 2 vehicles with so many problems so we traded it for a brand new (2003) foreign vehicle. Go Toyota!!


Best Features

power heated seats, fully loaded features, comfort, ergonomical features.


Worst Features

The vehicle needs quality built parts to last more than 40-50,000 miles.
