Oldsmobile Owners' Reviews
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. The only things replaced outside regular oil changes, batteries and two full tire change outs has been new brakes pads and a headlight relay. Maybe I just lucked out and got one of the better ones but I'd like to think some of the bad ones listed in here are the exception rather than the rule.
replaced rear brakes and calipers, bled brakes, drove around for a week, now i have no brakes at all including no emergency brake. can someone help?
Purchased Silhouette new in August 2000.
Vehicle has always been serviced with full synthetic oil.
Vehicle now has 129,000 miles and I have replaced the intake manifold gasket twice.
The transmission failed at 114,000 miles and had a total rebuild.
All brake lines had to be replaced at around 105,000 miles. Air shocks replaced due to failure (Delco) at 40,000 mile intervals.
Replaced starter twice as well as alternator at 121,000 miles.
The undercarrage has rusted away due to extreeme amounts of salt used on roads in winter even though the vehicle had a car wash with underspray every two weeks.
The steering rack and shocks replaced twice within 100,000 miles.
The list goes on and on.
The General strikes again!
Ran Great didn't give me any troubles
I purchased a 2000 Bravada in 2004 with 59000 miles on it. It has been very reliable and with the smart track gets through the snow great. I have never had engine problems but had to replace two motor mounts at 99000. The leather seats with heat are fantastic. I would trade up but Oldsmobile stopped making this model..to bad.
