I bought my 1996 Bravada in 2001 with 38000 miles on it. I've had the typical domestic car repairs, but overall this has been an incredible SUV. Plenty of power. I pull my 2k lb camper through the AZ mountains 4-5 times per year without concern. My Bravada currently has 155k miles, A/C blows ice cold, rides like glass at 75mph, and it is the most comfortable of all mid-size SUVs I've ridden in. Overall, I believe this is one of the best built SUVs on the market for 1996. I will drive this until the wheels fall off, but at this rate that should be well over 300k.
I purchased this Bravada used for $8,000 with 42,000 miles on it. It's been great for me so far, only the spark plug wires needed replaced. It handles the snow here in PA just fine. Plenty of cargo room in the back, seats are very comfortable, no real complaints.
Worst vehicle ever purchased. Constant repairs and numerous problems with fluid leaks of every type.Noisy and sluggish and unsteady on road.Radio system is horrible. Repairs have included steering box, door hinges,ignition switch,brakes,$800 to repair leaking gaskets and seals,brake rotors, $85 fan belt,engine lightstayed on,etc, etc
