"1992 Bravada 'W' engine, 4spd Automatic, ~160,000miles
I've had this beast for 10 years, and has had engine issues off and on the entire time I've owned it. First the ignition coil, then the fuel injector and injector distributor, then the fuel pump, some lighting grimlins, alternator failure, exhaust system rust issues (even at dry mile-high altitude), fuel pump wiring harness, ignition lock cylinger stuck in 'on', now needs Mass Air Flow Sensor and O2 sensor ...
Guess there's never been anyting extreme, just a bunch of issues for my aging mother to deal with. Overall a rather tough tank, hauls quite a bit, lotsa torque for get-up-and-go and power doesn't drop-off as it revs up when passing or acelerating hard. Lotsa space in back, even with an interior mounted full size spare. Awesome interior quality, far better than most other cars I have driven, even ones far newer and more expensive. Gas mileage was around 16-17 city when it was running right.
Overlooking the issues over the years, it has been a good vehicle to have, maybe not as a primary driver, though."
