Pros

Tow, haul, drive in any weather, very reliable. Turning radius is fanastic, handles like a very expensive sedan.

Cons

Gas mileage is poor. We avg 13 city and 15/18 highway (depending on load). Cooling Fan motor will need to be fixed/replaced at 100K miles.

Comfortable Work Horse — Impressed with it's power, handling, and over all comfort. In my opinion it's as good as a full size club cab truck, but fits in our garage. We use it for just about everything, - and then some. There hasn't been a task this vehicle hasn't tackled head-on, and declared victory over. My finacee picked it up used for a reasonable price. We both enjoy the comfort of the spacious cabin and heated seats. (I'm just over 6' tall, and prefer to ride/drive this over her 2005 Grand Prix any day of the week). This inline 6 cylinder has been a power house for towing. Example: after installing a good hitch, we towed over a ton (2000 lbs +) Matco Tool cabinet ( 6' x 4' x 3' every drawer stuffed with heavy tools) all the way from upper Michigan down to Missouri with no sweat. This beast even made it up a my brother-in-law's very steep inclined driveway without a spudder. For long trips in any weather this has been our go to vehicle. The gas mileage is poor, however it was made for comfort and WORK. Fits in a smaller garage, un-like a club cab full size truck. The only maintance expense I will note is the COOLING FAN. This paticular make and model is known to have trouble with these. If you love your Bravada AWD like we do... pay the man to fix it (won't be cheap). But well worth the expense.

Pros

This SUV is loaded, has everything you could want in an SUV.

Cons

Too many options, it took me awhile to figure them all out as I bought it used without a manual.

Great Family Suv. — I usually drive a truck, so that is the only drawback to this vehicle for me. Handles well, extremely easy to park for an SUV. Many safety features. A good looking family vehicle that has a sporty look and feel. A vehicle that you are proud to be seen in. It has been dependable and essentially a great ride!

Old Stand-by: Will Drive It Till It Dies! — I really loved this vehicle when it was new. It has withstood the test of time, and at 126,000 miles is going strong. I have had little to repair other than routine maintenance. Lots of versatility in seating and storage. Exterior is holding up very well, but interior is showing minor wear and tear.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
