That's quite nice. I'd just make sure that the recall work on it was done - there were quite a few on the early GMT360s.

From the Pics, she looks good.

Get rid of the cheap chinese rubber, and you should be all set.

Can you still get recall work done for free even if the recall was release years ago?

Back when these first came out, I was able to get my best friend's father to get out of his Jeep GC and into an Envoy. I had him go check out the Bravada too because of the added warranty at the time, but it was too fancy for him. Still has the Envoy and its a great truck. We took it to go skiing over new years and over President's weekend.

Well darn it, it is a nice vehicle, but it cannot haul what an Avalanche can.

It's about 1/3rd the cost of an avalanche of the same vintage and same miles....... and that's what utility trailers are for.

Very true.

And quicker to pay off....

I am personally a fan of the last generation Bravada. I like the looks and the interior and features( I have it on video) despite the analog gauges. To me it was the Ninety Eight or Eighty Eight of suv's. I had considered one, but was put off by the gas mileage. It has so many wonderful features. The thing I liked was the front end styling because it reminded me of Ninety Eight and Eighty Eight. This is only one of the few ways I can tolerate bucket seats in a vehicle.

Have the recall work done and have it checked out. That price is about right for a 2002.

Here are a couple of low mileage Avalanches in FL.

2002 Black 65,000 M - $8,300

2002 Red 72,000 M - $9,500

2002 Green 65,127 M - $12,994 - Based on one of my friend's experience, these guys can come down.

Ask Fly. He had a couple of good Ave's on sale a while back, when I was browsing his used car inventory.

Well it is Drew's decision, all I'm saying is he could have one purchase and source of expense, an Avalanche, or he can buy the Bravada and a trailer... two sources of expense plus the complications involved in towing. Plus as far as reliability, a GMT800 should be more reliable than a GMT360 and usually cheaper to fix if something does happen, possibly saving him more money over the course of his ownership.

On the other hand, he won't need to keep the trailer hitched to the Olds all the time...

Well, I also look at the Bravada as a stepping stone. I really need a vehicle like yesterday. If I could be like Rodger and drive around the Bravada for 6 - 8 months and then trade into an Avalanche, that would be ideal. The Bravada is much closer to being in reach for me right now.

Keep in mind, either way, I'm paying cash.

I like that idea...
