problem #4

Aug 262003

Bravada 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,712 miles
While driving my 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada at approximately 45 mph, without any warning, the vehicle lost all power and stalled. This caused the vehicle to lose steering and braking capability. The vehicle slowed to a complete stop, with several vehicles behind honking their horns and being forced to come to rapid stops. Upon gradually coming to a stop, luckily at the side of the road, the Bravada would not restart and required it to be towed to the nearest dealer.
