2002 Oldsmobile Bravada AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought it new and 5 years and 75,000 miles without any major problems. I tow a small boat, haul items and often flip down the rear seats. Use it as a comfortable ride when out on the town with friends. Very comfortable.


Best Features

Heated seats, flip down seats, AWD


Worst Features

Location of front vanity mirrors, cup holders. Base stereo is really lame.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

I like the air suspension, individual settings adjusted per the entry key, and very very comfortable ride.

2002 Oldsmobile Bravada AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

It's a great vehicle. It drives smoothly, is sharp, and has a great turning radius. It also is very comfortable.


Best Features

The body style is really nice. Driving behind it, it has a nice rear end and reflective lighting. It sits high enough and yet is not too low.


Worst Features

The cup holders in the front seats are inconvenient. The shifter interferes with the the driver's side cup holder. Since they're not being built anymore, it can't be improved.

2002 Oldsmobile Bravada AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've owned the car since 2004 - I purchased it from CarMax with 24,000 miles on it and now have 60,000. I've haven't had single problem with the vehicle. I've kept up with regular maintenance. It's been a remarkably safe, reliable, and strong vehicle. The exterior looks like new. I haven't used it to tow anything, however, it has a strong engine that will move quickly at all speed ranges. It's great on snow and gravel roads. I haven't taken it off road, but in 6 inch mud it crawls along fine. I wish Olds didn't fold - they are the highest quality GM make aside from Cadillac in my eyes.


Best Features

The interior build quality, comfortable ride, exterior and interior design, Bose sound system - it cranks without distortion. The OnStar integration is great, too.


Worst Features

None.

Review

Have owned my Bravada for six months. I bought it with 64,000 miles on it. The only probems are the memory for the mirrors doesn't work, and the bottom passenger seat heater is not working. I paid only $12,900 for it and it has every option. I have been getting about 17 mpg.


Best Features

The big sunroof, great sounding Bose stereo, and heated seats. This is a good looking SUV.


Worst Features

It doesn't matter, GM doesn't make Oldsmobiles any more.
