I got this vehicle used with 105,000 miles on it because I needed a vehicle that was AWD or 4WD.
The first time I drove it in bad weather the AWD Smarttrack system wouldn't work so the vehicle was basically a RWD vehicle.
About 3 weeks later I went out to start the vehicle and the vehicle was dead and I had to have it toed to a garage and fixed.
I have only had this vehicle for about 1,500 miles and have already had 2 major problems with it.
I would not suggest buying this vehicle, you will put way to much money into it and not get much out of it.
Spend the extra money and buy a Honda, Ford, or Toyota that will last you forever.

The leather seats are luxurious and the stereo just plain rocks! The V6 and auto with overdrive deliver plenty of get up and go, the automatic AWD is great since we live in the mountains and winter always delivers ice and snow. The handling is rock solid. The ABS system has saved at least one life, an idiot had spun out and was walking in the oncoming traffic lane in a blind curve, I couldn't have missed him, I sounded my horn and he froze like a deer in the headlights, the ABS stopped 15 feet short of [violative content deleted].

I bought this vehicle back in 2004.
I have 110,000 miles on it.
Heated seats, sunroof, leather interior, all the upgrades imaginable. I have never gotten tired of that beautiful burgundy color., stereo... the works!
It is the most comfortable vehicle our family has ever owned. Still drives great.
Very minimal problems compared to cars of the past.
One of the best purchases we've ever made.
This was my first SUV.
I could never go back to driving a regular sedan.
We're seniors now. We like it better than our new Mazda 3.
In the wake of last year's restyle, Bravada sees feature refinements for '99. The driver-side airbag has been redesigned into a mini-module to permit a clearer view of the instruments, while the turn signal stalk now provides a flash-to-pass feature. A telltale warning lamp has been added to alert the driver when the tailgate lift glass is ajar. And an anti-theft alarm system is now standard. There's also an option package that combines a driver-side memory seat and a power passenger-side seat, as well as sound system upgrades across the board.
