Review of the 2004 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

    Skittish handling around corners, numb steering, some low-grade interior materials, resale value likely to plunge quickly.

  • What's New for 2004

    In its last year of production, the Bravada receives satellite radio as its only notable new option.

Vehicle: 2004 Oldsmobile Bravada AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Had to share that I've owned the 04 Bravada and have had no service issues. I really can't believe it. I have 110K on it and have to say it's been the best vehicle I've ever owned. Sorry it's an Olds and sorry they discontinued the line. Seems they finally got it right. I've owned a number of Olds products that had typical issues but not this one. I now have an issue with the front differential that will cost me a few hundred dollars, but come on is that it?? That's my question has anyone else had experience with this vehicle? What issues should I look forward to in the future? I hate to dump it for a $40K + replacement.




Best luxury suv ever

Vehicle: 2004 Oldsmobile Bravada AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

We bought our 04' Bravada new in 2004 for approx. $37,000. We test drove many vehicles such as the Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Escalade, BMW x5, and Acura MDX. This car blew the competition away; The Bravada is quiet and has a very smooth ride, power folding mirrors, DVD player, voice activated everything, and just looks like a luxury vehicle. It is such a shame that GM no longer makes the Oldsmobile division anymore, however, I highly recommend the Bravada to anyone looking for a mid-size luxury SUV.




Hood issues

Vehicle: 2004 Oldsmobile Bravada AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

We recently bought a used 2004 AWD Bravada and loved it the moment we saw it. After we had it for about 2 weeks it started making squeaking sounds from under the hood. After taking it back to the dealership, they told us they couldn't find anything wrong with it. After we took them for a ride so they could hear the sounds they looked the problem up on the internet, to find it had something to do with a loose hood latch. They supposedly "fixed it" but the problem persists. We don't know how to go about fixing it even if we could. The AWD light also comes on often but goes away.
