Bravada 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,700 miles
: the contact stated while the vehicle was at the car wash in 2003 there was a water leak on the passenger side. The right power window would not rollup or down and this occurred intermittently. The dealership could not duplicate the problem. Two-three weeks ago while trying to get the window to roll down, the engine died suddenly without warning. This was the third time the engine died suddenly. The first was while driving 60 mph on a dry highway. The vehicle was towed to the dealership who could not duplicate the problem. The second time, the vehicle restarted after sitting a short while on the side of the road. The cvcs boots on the front wheels blew and were replaced twice. The headlights were replaced three times.

When making a right turn the front wheels felt like they were locking up, consumer had to apply more gas to get them to unlock. Took to Oldsmobile and they flush the all wheel drive system fluid. Consumer feels that mad problem worse.
