Great car for the money.

Vehicle: 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

I have owned this vehicle for two years and have not had any problems with it. I get between 21 and 25 miles per gallon. The engine is plenty powerfull for this car. If you want a small SUV this is a good choice. If you want a sportscar or an SUV that rides like a Caddy...this is not the car for you. I think the person that rated this car a 1.1 must have had a bad experience and should have bought a more expensive, larger car. This is a great car for the money! I have never had a car that "Held" it's value! I have had to sell each one of them at a loss or traded-it in on a new car.




Decent for the money

Vehicle: 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

This car was a decent buy for the money but has an annoying squeeking that the dealer can't fix! It's not heavy enough and bounces on the road. The car has good amounts of power with 5 speed. Very good lights. Smooth interstate driving. Inexpensive suv if not cheap small suv, you get what you pay for.




Beware! don't buy this car.

Vehicle: 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Vehicle was a huge waste of money! The vehicle hydroplanes on damp to wet pavement, practically blows off the road on windy days, and is terrible on gas mileage compared to other mini- SUVs. Clearly not worth the money and time spent on it. Will be traded in and taking a $5000 dollar loss due to the vehicle not holding any kind of value - no dealership will give a reasonable amount of value on trade in and was told it was a bad choice of car and it would never hold any kind of value. If you have children, consider that the safety-level of the Grand Vitara is of the lowest grade, and second guess buying as a family vehicle. Beware!
