Great little suv

Vehicle: 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 4dr SUV

I have been fortunate enough to drive several different SUVs, including highline makes like Lexus, Infiniti and BMW. I can honestly say I've enjoyed driving the GV more than any of them. It has been incredibly reliable to this point, everything still works. By far the best value for the buck. It's been a blast to drive, just the right size, decent fuel economy at 22 MPG and with the 6 cyl. engine there is plenty of power. I would recommend this SUV to anyone and would not hesitate to buy another one.

Great car for the price

Vehicle: 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 4dr SUV

For the price this is a great little SUV. Just don't expect a volvo ride and solidness. I've had it four years. Had 2 recalls done - no problems except occasionally the air bag light comes on dimly during drives. Dealer couldn't find problem. Overall you get a lot more car for your money.




Good truck

Vehicle: 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 4dr SUV

I bought this vehicle before I had a child, it was good until he moved to the "big kid" car seat. No one has leg room on that side of the truck. The truck is very reliable abd fun though. Only complaint is the room with a carseat.




Poor factory service

Vehicle: 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 4dr SUV

a/c broke ,Took about 2 weeks to get the part.Gas mi. only 17 mpg. Car has a very annoying vibration. I have been trying for about 2 months calling sukuki 800# to get factery rep ,twice he told me he will be out in about 3 weeks .I thought of tradeing the car in but these cars deprecate very much and the car is worth thousands of $ less then the loan. payoff.

Perfect little suv for me!

Vehicle: 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 4dr SUV

I bought my Grand Vitara new in 2000 and haven't had one complaint yet. It is a little on the small side for myself and friends (all of us are 6ft+ tall), but I new that when I made the purchase. I test drove the CR-V and RAV4 and even was considering a Sportage, but the Suzuki offered more power and standard options for my constant highway driving. I've had several cars including and BMW and a Mercedes, but this one is my favorite. All in all I'm very pleased and hope to have this truck for a long time to come.
