Review of the 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada

  • A powerful new engine, slick styling and a fully optioned interior make this one of Olds' best products in a long time. Too bad it's headed for the chopping block with the rest of the lineup.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Plenty of power, improved handling and ride quality, roomy cabin.

  • Cons

    No third seat, slow steering.

  • What's New for 2002

    Olds brings out a new Bravada that's dramatically improved over its predecessor. A roomier interior, refined suspension, unique style and an all-new inline six packing more power than most competitors' V8s highlight the changes made to Oldsmobile's luxury ute.

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada 2WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Bought mine New in 02. I'd give this an 11 on Comfort and Performance. Regularly drive this 120 miles for work and its a better ride than a Lexus. Acceleration is great and turning radius is tight. I am on the original brakes at 100k! Eight yrs in Florida sun and the ac is still going strong. Had to replace the air suspension bags in the rear. Buy parts online and find a truck specialty shop to install, it's half the dealer cost. The eng is strong but has always been too loud. Had strange elec problems and replaced a box, think it was body control module. The depreciation is horrible, but this makes it a GREAT used car buy! Will keep this until 200k!

I am writing about the rear air suspension air bags. Just replaced mine at 91000 miles. Dealer wanted $744 not incl compressor. I had a truck shop that specializes in raising suspensions and custom jobs install them for $125..Now my Bravada doesnt hav sagging rear end anymore!

New off the lot, thought i needed a new one until i started looking, the new 2009 SUV's are trash compared to my truck, apart from normal service, air con swith has gone twice,annoying in houston heat, the truck has cost nothingComfort of. But thats it. I have averaged 19.6 mpg and i drive stop and go commute. i love my silver girl.

Really love this car. For an SUV, is very quick with plenty of power. Has a much better feel than other SUVs I tested and the two things that are superb on this car are the brakes and the very small turning radius. The brakes just grab real good and you can stop on a dime.

I bought this vehicle new and have kept it dealer maintained. It has been and continues to be a great vehicle. 270 horses and a smooth, sporty ride, and the capability to be a real family 'utility' vehicle. I think I'll keep her! (I actually have a new 08 Acadia slt-1 in the driveway that I'm test driving) these reviews have assisted me in changing my mind about trading in!

The '02 Olds Bravada has been a pleasure to own and drive. I have had no major problems and with the air suspension it provides a very smooth ride. The gas mileage has averaged 19.1 MPG city/hwy combined. Parts and service are not a problem since so many mechanical parts are interchangeable with the Chev Trailblazer and GMC Envoy. I highly recommend this vehicle.
