2003 Oldsmobile Bravada SUV AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

118,000 miles and still a nice truck to own. For me this one was the best. Previously owned a 1999 & 1992 as well.

2003 Oldsmobile Bravada SUV AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I hate this car! I have had so many problems..... Transfer case motor went 3x, brought it back to dealer, turn signal didn't work. Bad ground, The front differential seized up and stopped me dead in the road. Had to flatbed it back to the dealer.The replacement costed $2,000. Sway bar links went bad in the front and back.replaced the back ones. Fronts still need to be replaced. The cam shaft positioning sensor went bad making the check engine light come on.That needed to be replaced along with two tires, tie rod end, and a thermostat housing to pass inspect. $600 for that. Now the trans. is slipping, pass wheel bearing going bad, front breaks are bad, and there's a strange rattle underneath.


Favorite Features

The cruise control works and handles good on the highway. Thats about it


Suggested Improvements

Take the car totally apart and fix all the bugs because my car has ever single one

Review

I will forever miss the Ninety-Eight, Rocket 455, Bravada and the Olds empire entirely. This is an underrated SUV that rarely gets mention as a result of its relatives from Chevy and GMC. You'll never ever mistake this for a Trailblazer if you've driven them both. A luxury AWD SUV that fits the wallet nicely. Despite claims, resale values remain superior to its brothers.


Favorite Features

Exterior sheetmetal. Nose far superior to either of its brothers. Even after 50,000 miles, still rides like it has 5,000.


Suggested Improvements

Positioning of front cup holders. Rear wiper has negligible contact. Radio knobs are unable to stay in place despite minimal use. Dash buttons and driver 1 & 2 buttons on armrest lose paint coating too quickly.

Review

I purchased new in 2002 and have 75k miles on it. Original brakes and tires. Just past inspection 12/08 in Virginia. I have towed boats and trailers. No problems, no rattles, no electrical issues (except replaced headlamps). I can't imagine what more you would want. Purchased this truck because Oldsmobile only had 6 options everything else is standard in 03 plus 60 mo zero financing. Excellent product.


Favorite Features

AWD, load level, towing capacity, luxury features


Suggested Improvements

Don't like the power backup mirrors but you can reprogram them so they don't turn down in reverse

Review

We have enjoyed our Bravada excepted for a recurring transmission slippage that gives you the sensation to go over a bumpy road as the vehicle starts to accelerate. There is also a loud metallic noise that I have not been able to find the origin. It sounds like a loose hatch door, or loose braking caliper or an heavy piece of metal rattling when on bumpy road.


Favorite Features

Comfort, space
