Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Oldsmobile Bravada Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 152004

Bravada 4-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,000 miles


I am the owner of a 2001 olds Bravada and recently my complete transmission has failed. Last year I took my vehicle to the olds dealer complaining of straining to change gears. They told me that it was not my transmission, but a part of the emmission and they were fixing the problem because I had purchased the gmpp (good thing I did). A year later, the same problem occured and I took my vehicle back to the olds dealer and because it had been "a few days" past the warranty expiration date, they said that they couldn't do anything. So, I had to take my vehicle to an outside dealer who had to replace my entire transmission for $1700! now, my oxygen sensor has gone out and my gas gauge doesn't work. Since, I am still recovering from the $1700 to replace my transmission, I am unable to get these to necessities fixed right away. I am highly disappointed in Oldsmobile and I will never purchase another Oldsmobile and I will tell everyone I know not to purchase an Oldsmobile!
