This vehicle is fun to drive and is versatile with the rear seats folding flat to provide ample cargo space. Even after reaching 75,000 miles the engine runs strong, and the a/c works well. The only negative is that Suzuki does not make its repair manuals available and few aftermarket products are readily available to the consumers. I've had to fabricate the cold air intake, using a K&N filter and a piece of pvc tubing. But aside from that aspect, the vehicle is awesome, you can see performance designed into every aspect of the vehicle from the engine to the suspension front and rear. I love this truck.

Since I purchased my Grand Vitara 4
years ago I've really enjoyed driving
it. It's solid, turns easily, and has power.
Had one problem with the sealer gasket
of the engine that had to be replaced once.

Pretty much enjoyed the car. Very
strong and well performing engine (V6).
Breaks and electric components solid.
But the a/c is so-so, the stereo
outright sucks and the manual
transmission isn't smooth.Paint on body
of car and moulding seems inferior. The
cruise control is difficult to use.
Chips easily, small area came loose and
hard to clean inside.
Pretty rugged to drive and handles very
well but too many little

I have been extremely satisfied with
this purchase. Over 36,000 miles, I
have had almost zero problems - it's
like that Timex watch, it just keeps on
ticking! It's fun to drive and very
versatile. This vehicle has NO rattles
at 36,000 miles.
1999 Grand Vitara 2.5L V6 with 20,000 miles. On start up 9 out of 10 times I get a rattle/tapping noise from the top of the engine from both sides of the camshaft banks. This disappears after about ...
