Have had to have several major repairs
done. Both front hubs replaced. Air
conditioner, waterpump, alternator, 3
batteries, exhaust system, timing belt
broke at 60,000 miles.Driver door
hinges broke. Nice interior, rough
ride, pulled my bassboat very well.
Interior layout, very nice seats.
Quality of workmanship, high price tag
and even more expensive to maintaintain
70000 easy miles and I've replaced the
fuel pump, alternator, tensioner belt,
both front wheel bearings, ball joints,
oil cooler lines, stereo speakers and
now the transmission is slipping. This
vehicle has never towed anything.
This is my second Bravada, my other
one, a 1993 (get's much better mileage
by the way) perfect size for our
family, not too big and bulky like the
surbaban and ford's the confort is
exceptional and the drivability is
great, plenty of power for the
mountains of Colorado and the stytle to
go with it, my only negative is gas
milage <16 MPG
Needed a 4x4 for this winter. So far
we've put 2,000 miles on it, no
problem. Is completely loaded, paid
6800.00 plus NJ tax for a total of
7200.00 and then did a complete tune up
and oil change for 300.00. It had
106,000 miles on it. Engine is strong,
tranny tight, brakes perfect. Looking
for another one for my daughter.
I like the vehicle overall, but it has had a lot of mechanical problems since I purchased it used exactly 1 year ago with 58,000 miles. I have replaced the AWD system, serpentine belt, alternator, the idler arm, rotors, and front bearings all in a year's time. My husband USE to have a 97 Olds Bravada and had most of the same things go wrong with it around 48,000 miles. We could no longer afford 2 vehicles with so many problems so we traded it for a brand new (2003) foreign vehicle. Go Toyota!!
power heated seats, fully loaded features, comfort, ergonomical features.
The vehicle needs quality built parts to last more than 40-50,000 miles.
