1998 Oldsmobile Bravada 4dr SUV AWD


Bought it w/ 81k mi and now have 124k on it. Runs great after many repairs, some due to age, some due to quality problems. Replaced/repaired brakes, U- joints, tires, battery, shocks, plugs/wires, water pump, belt tensioner, heater/air cond, headlamps, idler arm, oil leaks, etc. Have prob w/ stereo speakers also. Many interior squeaks & rattles. Very slow acceleration and ride deteriorates a bit past 65-70 mph. Rides nice at lower speeds and generally feels secure and smooth w/ AWD.

Best Features

AWD, heated leather seats, power features, sunroof, paint and finish still looks great, cargo space w/ fold down seats.

Worst Features

Just too many quality problems. Vehicle was a nice concept, but just not quality built -- understandable why they stopped making them.
