Default 98 Bravada

98 Olds Bravada

What do you guys think? Good price?
if its got the 4.3 that is a strong engine, had one in a jimmy and loved it. it seems like a good deal with leather, AWD, and all the options.
Any opinions?
and any carfaxers in here?

neighbor had one <2000>. was a good drive. wasnt worth the $32k when new IMO, but was good. the 4.3 threw the truck around pretty good, could squeal a tire on takeoff if i wanted to <left front i believe>, but involved a brakestand, then get off the brakes. i will admit that high end acceleration <past 65> wasnt the best, but it could get out of its own way. but he does have a recurring issue with battery drain, and with the rear glass opening on its own <he blamed me for that >.

drive it, and YOU tell US if its worth $3800

Jolly, you squealed the left front tire on a rear wheel drive (that obviously wasn't in 4wd at the time)?

You're GOOD man!

Seem slike a good asking price and worth going to take a look at. What kind of transfer case do those have?

EDIT: I did some searching. Sounds like the TC is similar in function to what my jeep has except no low range (and different manufacturer). I would take it for a test drive, get it warmed up and then do some slow tight turns or figure-8'* and see if the front hopps/skipps or binds. I'm not sure if that applies as much to the case in the Bravada but it can't hurt to check anyway.

The older ones are almost identical to a Blazer, just with different emblems. The interiors are nearly identical.

Ya, I realized that after I actually checked the link!

I'd opt for the newer body style...but thats just me.

well i would go for the newer body style but my budget is about 4000 so a 2002 + is out of my price range
