Used 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada Consumer Reviews
I bought this truck with only 60,000 miles on it and of only owning it for 3 months the starter, the fuel injectors, all the lights, and my turn signal swith went out on me. This has been the only and last GM product i will ever own. Love my FORD
I bought this from a bank repo. It was pristene with 39k miles. First year had to replace the ball joints, pitman arm and idler arm. Figured poor maintenance by previous owner. AWD started to chatter, serviced at dealership, along with shocks $1300. Wiper pump shot ($16). Fixed it myself. Catalytic Conv ($550) AWD malfunction, shift motor and sensors ($1400). 86k miles, transmission out with no hint of trouble ($2000). Door hinges @ 60k ($500,)MPG about 16 on the highway, 8 in town. Brake service about once a year ($400). Defrost malfunction last 2 years ($100 x 2) Starter ($600). I've had to repair things on this vehicle that I've never had to repair on any other vehicle I've owned. Unreliable.
My Vehicle has just over 40,000 as well as a friends 2000 Bravada and we both have to replace brake rotors that are decintegrating. GM used poor quality bi-metal brake rotors that quickly rust in between metal layers causing the outer layers to separate and bad pulsing in the brakes. This rotors come from factory at their minimum thickness and can not be turned. Customer service denies any problem and totally unwilling to assist. Just ask your local Midas how many they've seen.
I cant believe the bad reviews for this vehicle. I have owned this Bravada for almost 8 years. I havent experience any problems. Last year the fuel pump went out but it had 148000 miles on it ( bound to happen eventually). now I have 158000 and would love to buy another Bravada. Just been lucky I guess.
