Cool little suv

Vehicle: 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara JS 4dr SUV

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.




Not worth the money

Vehicle: 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara JS 4dr SUV

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 dissapointments (depreciation).

The car does not start in the morning. Will not go in to gear. Have had it serviced several times. Transmission repaired (although nothing was wrong with it) Not a good value.




Great value!

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.
