"Bought this 1998 Bravada new. Built in Sept., 1997. OE brakes lasted 104,600 miles before changing rotors and pads. First tuneup at 105,000. No rust whatsoever. With new Michelin Defender tires mounted on alloy wheels, getting 19-21 mpg. Driver's seat, and front passenger leather seat, required front and outer panel replacements due to wear. New Michelin rubber floor mats. Replaced OE radio with a Pioneer equipped with Bluetooth; otherwise, all OE. Great vehicle. Handles any type of weather. Towed a buddy's Honda Civic 20 miles to Honda dealership and the Bravada barely acknowledged anything was back there. Back seats flatten for max cargo area. Rarely have back seats up in seating position. Pet dogs have that area to relax in wherever we go. Planning to keep this vehicle as long as possible. 100% reliable!!"
"I purchased this suv 4 yrs. ago and have had great luck with it. I bought it to tow fishing boat and it worked out great. body is in great shape, no rust, motor is adequate for towing although i don't live in hill country. Still no leaks or oil consumption with 130k. will pass it on to my son who travels to northern mn in winter. he loves it!"
"Completely reliable vehicle. Not good gas mileage as it has aged. I have had to put in a new transmission, driver power seat, fuel pump and front passenger side window power motor in the last year and a half but, I intend to fix what it needs to keep up this uniquely reliable vehicle."
"This has been a great car overall! It's comfortable and a dependable ride (it's gotten me through many snowstorms). I bought a much newer car which doesn't really compare (not looking forward to snow). The rear tinted windows were great for protecting the kids and it was a really functional car; great for a gardener, handyman, family needs. I could even fit the kids bikes in back! My kids miss it, too. They could see out so much better on long trips and the design had tons of storage areas. Some repairs but nothing unusual for the wear and age."
"I bought my Bravada second hand from a co-worker 7 yrs ago and I have never regretted it! This vehicle has been extremely reliable, minimal maintenance expenses until about age 12 on. Now I'm repairing leaks and little things are starting to break here and there. This vehicle continues to impress my husband whenever we fold the seats down and load her up with anything we buy from sectional sofas, kayaks, formal dining room sets, camping gear, kids, and pets! I recommend this vehicle for purchase."
