A vehicle to be avoided
Suspension components: Idler arm, ball joints.
Engine: Engine idles rough when cold and/or warm.
Transmission: Harsh 1-2 shift. Sometimes has trouble shifting from 3-4.
AWD: Problem with transfer case causes car to shake real hard when backing up or turning.
I am very disappointed with this automobile. My experience with this Bravada has almost made me wonder if I should keep buying GM vehicles. I bought this vehicle after my previous truck, a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer, mysteriously caught fire while on my way to work.
I spent $18,000 for this Bravada and I have regretted the purchase of it every waking moment. The Blazer, Bravada, Jimmy SUVs have got to be the most unreliable vehicles GM has made recently.
This truck will be paid for in July and I look forward to trading it in. I am really surprised that a vehicle with 40,000 miles behaves and feels like a vehicle with 140,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
