Review of the 2003 Oldsmobile Bravada

  • With nearly identical models available from GMC and Chevrolet, we don't see any compelling reason to buy the soon-to-be-discontinued Bravada.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful engine, long list of standard features, plush highway ride.

  • Cons

    Too soft in the corners, resale value likely to plunge quickly.

  • What's New for 2003

    Oldsmobile quietly added a two-wheel-drive model to the Bravada lineup last year, making it a bit more attractive to those who don't need the foul weather capability of all-wheel drive. This year 2WD Bravadas get standard traction control while AWD versions now feature a coil spring rear suspension. The previously standard air-spring setup is still an available option on AWD models. Side airbags have also been moved from the standard equipment package to the options list while the standard 4.2-liter engine has been given a 5 horsepower bump.

Good ride, but not dependable

Vehicle: 2003 Oldsmobile Bravada Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

I love the ride of this SUV, but I have taken it to the shop numerous times in the past 1 1/2 years for electrical problems. I am going to have to trade or sell it.

I purchsed a bravada back in march 2002 and so far it has 10,000 trouble free miles.The only times it has gone to the dealer was for a reccall and oil changes.The truck drives and handles like a car.The motor is as smooth and refined as any import car with twice the price tag.I was not looking to purchase an american car or truck,but after test drivig the bravada my mind was instantly changed.Kudos to G.M.for finally producing an affortable worthy world contender.
