Review of the 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada

  • Although its all-wheel-drive system makes it a good all-weather SUV, the cramped cabin, soft suspension and questionable build quality should make you think twice before paying a premium price for this luxury sport-ute.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    All-wheel drive, comfy seats, nice ride, well-equipped, great stereo.

  • Cons

    On-road demeanor, rattles and squeaks apparent off road, high price tag.

  • What's New for 2000

    GM's OnStar communications system is now available as a dealer-installed option, and a new cargo management system is expected sometime this year. Special color treatments include a new Jewelcoat Red option that features a deep red base color finished with a red-tinted final top coat in place of the usual clearcoat. There's also a Platinum Edition option that adds pewter-colored lower body cladding.

Terrific used car purchase! really

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD

I bought my 2000 Bravada used in the winter of 2008 with 65,000 miles, and was terrified about all the bad reviews I'd read. Luckily this has been one of the most reliable cars I've ever owned - I replaced the ABS on one of the wheels a few weeks ago. Other than that, its just been routine maintenance! My recommendation - try one out for yourself. I think it all depends on the vehicle. Mine has been terrific to drive - in snow and rain, and has cargo space like crazy! Wish it got better gas mileage but I can't think of any other complaints! It's such a fun car to drive and own!

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD

I won't say this was worst car I have ever purchased. I purchased in 2007 finished my last payment January 2010. And no problems while i was making payments. As soon as i paid it off, the fuel pump went. No problems, a friend helped me change it, i was back on the rode. Then in Feb. the Radiator busted on the highway. No problems, got it fixed. Then in April, the CV Joint broke, its good it broke as soon as i got home. fixed, abs broke, when CV broke. and i didn't know that you have to replace arms as well. And no one new that the wheel bearings were bad. so this year along I've paid $1545 in repairs. I just have small things to fix. Other then that its a good vehicle.




Bravada number one

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD

I bought my 2000 bravada in 2008 with 89,000 miles on it. I never thought that I could love a vehicle so much. So much fun to drive. You feel cool driving it. Decently quiet automobile. A few squeaking interior parts but have not had one single problem with this vehicle. The gas Gage was broken when purchased. The doors sag a little on the driver and passenger side, but its 10 years + old. Give it a break. Gets through snow like a charm. Never been stuck. Even did a little mudding with no problems. Road noise is there but not unbearable. Plenty of cargo space. And the awd on mine jerks when I turn to sharp which is very anoying but mine is the only one I've heard of that does it. Awesome truck




Money pit

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD

I bought this from a bank repo. It was pristene with 39k miles. First year had to replace the ball joints, pitman arm and idler arm. Figured poor maintenance by previous owner. AWD started to chatter, serviced at dealership, along with shocks $1300. Wiper pump shot ($16). Fixed it myself. Catalytic Conv ($550) AWD malfunction, shift motor and sensors ($1400). 86k miles, transmission out with no hint of trouble ($2000). Door hinges @ 60k ($500,)MPG about 16 on the highway, 8 in town. Brake service about once a year ($400). Defrost malfunction last 2 years ($100 x 2) Starter ($600). I've had to repair things on this vehicle that I've never had to repair on any other vehicle I've owned. Unreliable.
