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.

10 years old and no

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.




Love my bravada

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

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.




Not bad for a last

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

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.
