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.

2002 Oldsmobile Bravada Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 102005

Bravada 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


I have had my 2002 Bravada in the shop numerous times for the locking of my AWD. The fluid was changed in the transfer case (no help), the module was replaced (no help) and now the whole transfer case is being replaced. The cost is between 1500 and 2000! the vehicle has 80K miles. This is a very serious issue (and it appears that GM is aware of problems-based on tsb's online) especially in northern climates with snow. The control of the vehicle, when turning is lost, as the particular wheel locks up. I also had my fan clutch break, separate from AWD problem.
