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.

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.

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.

I purchased my 2004 Bravada after riding in a friend's Bravada. I was impressed enough with the comfortable ride that I had to get one of the last Bravadas made. Even with gas prices at $4.00 - I won't give up the luxury of the Olds Bravada.

We needed a awd or 4 wheel drive
vehicle that was reliable and easy to
oberate in the snow country, especially
for my wife who has never lived in
the snow before. We love our Bravada
because of its comfort and style and
power of its engine.

This SUV has been nothing but good.
It is a step up from the
Envoy/Trailblazer and it lets you know
it. Perferated leather seats, wood
trim everywhere, OnStar and other
electronical goodies are just a few of
the goodies I enjoy in this car. The
AWD system is helpful, and has no
doubt gotten me out of some bad
situations, living in Michigan and
all, but it seems there is a bit of a
long delay for it to kick in... but
when it does... WOW! it is a
difference! It's is truly an
outstanding family, Home Depot, and
overall just classy SUV. It's
beautiful, it knows it too, but
doesn't flaunt it.
