1998 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD


Review

I feel safe driving the bravada with the awd. I have never lost control, even when i had a blowout on the interstate going 75. The only problems I have had are the plastic levers on the passenger seat has broken and the battery was bad and leaked acid.


Favorite Features

AWD, Leather.


Suggested Improvements

the plastic doors are cheaply made.

1998 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD


Review

I have owned my dark green Oldsmobile Bravada for 3 1/2 years. It has run flawlessly and is driven over 100 miles each day. I currently have 80k miles on the vehicle. I have an average fuel economy of 20.1 mi/gallon using 87 Ron fuel. This vehicle is secure and comfortable and will be tough to replace. I have used synthetic oil and performed all necessary routine maintenance including transakle and rear differential fluid changes, transmission service and brake fluid flush. The vehicle has the original brake oads and rotors.


Favorite Features

Decent ride for an SUV; acceptable fuel consumption, regular fuel requirement; perfect size and plenty of cargo space; SMARTRACK all-wheel drive system; good engine and transmission performance.


Suggested Improvements

Better interior assembly; independent rear suspension

Review

I own a '91 and a '98 Bravada. Both have been very reliable. You get a lot of vehicle for you dollar in comparison to many other SUV's. It rides better than most true SUVs and the AWD is great for inclimate weather.


Favorite Features

AWD, Leather with heated seats, auto lights.

Review

It is an excellent midsized SUV with all of the bells and whistles. The Bravada handles incredibly well in virtually all types of weather. I've driven it in hard, driving rain storms and in the snow and ice and have never felt insecure or out of control in this vehicle. Another big plus is the gas mileage -- it averages about 19 miles per gallon. My Bravada has 94K miles and still runs like a top!


Favorite Features

Heated Seats, gas mileage and tank distance calculators, incredible rear seat leg room.


Suggested Improvements

Heat shield under the muffler is faulty.
