2003 Oldsmobile Bravada Owner Comments

problem #1

May 202006

Bravada 6-cyl

  • 19,780 miles


Heading West on emerald parkway between riverside drive and dublin road in dublin, oh my Bravada stalled, the gauges went wild, the power steering went out and the brakes would not work. I managed to avoid other traffic and coast the Bravada onto dublin road (turning left) and get it stopped off the road under the overpass. The Bravada would not restart, and the key would not release from the ignition switch. Crestview Cadillac could not diagnose the problem. Decosky motors in mount vernon, oh (where the vehicle was purchased new) knew right away what the problem was because they had had multiple incidents of the same issue on quite a few GM vehicles already at that time (may, 2006). My vehicle is not among the vehicles being recalled by GM. It should be, and GM knew of the issue way back in 2006!! I am wondering if my vehicle will do it again. I am upset that I had to pay crestview a diagnostic fee, pay for towing both to them and to decosky's, had to rent a car, and other expenses due to the ignition switch failure.
