Still going strong

Vehicle: 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX 4dr SUV 4WD

Four years later from my 09 review. Vitara still reliable and going strong. I now have 68,000 miles. Exhaust system is showing extreme wear and will probably have to be replaced soon. Also same for clutch. Other than that car is fine shape. Hope to have it to 90,000.

This is one of the best trucks on the world. My mom got this truck around 2005 and it still strong. She never had a problem with the engine till now, seven years without any major problems is a blessing. The car should last us a few more years if she take care of it!!!

I bought the GV used with about 40,000 miles on it. Then I drove the heck out of it before passing it on to my daughter who proceeded to do the same. It now has 210,000 miles and is still running strong. But we're retiring it in favor of a new car for her to drive. During this time, the only repair has been to replace a rear wheel bearing. Nothing else. (Actually we have two of these and I'm still driving mine.)




So disappointed

Since purchasing this vehicle brand new in 1999, I've had several problems. To name a few: metal protruding through driver and passenger seats, timing chain and tensioner repair, rear diff replaced, A/C replaced, trans replaced, constant rattling noise at acceleration and idle, faulty 4WD, cramped seating, poor cargo space, poor customer service with the American Suzuki Motor Corporation. No help whatsoever regarding issues. It was in the repair shop more than it was on the road. It is truly a lemon!




Still going strong

Thought by now I would have sold it, but still runs and looks great. Repairs have been minimal. Car is super reliable and fun to drive. Great in all weather. Going on 10 years and the way the economy looks, I'll have this another 10. If GM would have made cars like this they wouldnt be in the trouble they are in. Thanks Suzuki.




185,000 and going strong

I am amazed that a vehicle with high mileage can drive so well. Never had any major issues and continues to be reliable. Better than stated with over 20 mpg city/highway. I continue to make sure I change the oil every 3k and do not have any doubts I will hit 250k.
