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 #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.
