acceleration issues

I have a 2001 Olds Bravada. & Have been having issues with it since 2010. If I had to do it over I would say forget this SUV and have gotten a car. I've replaced wheelbearings, rear ends, fuel pumps, radiator, engine, oil changes, tires& now when you press the gas it will not accelerate. I am so fed up!!!

Hard to believe so many people hate the Bravada. I bought mine new in 2002 and have a little over 90000 miles on it. This car has been nearly perfect.
