Edmunds' Expert Review

With nearly identical models available from GMC and Chevrolet, we don't see any compelling reason to buy the soon-to-be-discontinued Bravada.

2003 Highlights

Oldsmobile quietly added a two-wheel-drive model to the Bravada lineup last year, making it a bit more attractive to those who don't need the foul weather capability of all-wheel drive. This year 2WD Bravadas get standard traction control while AWD versions now feature a coil spring rear suspension. The previously standard air-spring setup is still an available option on AWD models. Side airbags have also been moved from the standard equipment package to the options list while the standard 4.2-liter engine has been given a 5 horsepower bump.

I'd LOVE it, but!
Annette Belz,11/13/2003
I really enjoy my Bravada, it's luxurious, comfortable, quiet, and RED! I have auto start & the heating system, etc., is great here in Alaska. BUT....I have had a little rattle that 5 visits to the dealer have not cured, which is very frustrating. This has been there since the car was almost new- -and it's only six months old now. VERY annoying and inconvenient. A car that costs this much should have NO vibrations, chirps, squeaks or rattles!
Not just another Trailblazer
I will forever miss the Ninety-Eight, Rocket 455, Bravada and the Olds empire entirely. This is an underrated SUV that rarely gets mention as a result of its relatives from Chevy and GMC. You'll never ever mistake this for a Trailblazer if you've driven them both. A luxury AWD SUV that fits the wallet nicely. Despite claims, resale values remain superior to its brothers.
Not too big, Not too small, just right
My new Bravada was purchased after driving a dozen other SUV models. The ride, room, quality and price after rebates, made the Bravada a clear choice for my needs. The ride is as good as the BMW and the acceleration is as good as the MDX. The demise of Oldsmobile possibly was a negative factor but I felt that the OLDS name will always be a positive one.
Peice Of Crap
I hate this car! I have had so many problems..... Transfer case motor went 3x, brought it back to dealer, turn signal didn't work. Bad ground, The front differential seized up and stopped me dead in the road. Had to flatbed it back to the dealer.The replacement costed $2,000. Sway bar links went bad in the front and back.replaced the back ones. Fronts still need to be replaced. The cam shaft positioning sensor went bad making the check engine light come on.That needed to be replaced along with two tires, tie rod end, and a thermostat housing to pass inspect. $600 for that. Now the trans. is slipping, pass wheel bearing going bad, front breaks are bad, and there's a strange rattle underneath.

Should I lease or buy a 2003 Oldsmobile Bravada?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
