Review of the 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara

4 wheeling in a/c comfort

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

I live in the Mohave Desert of Calif and do a lot of off roading on very bad, rocky, dirt roads, dry stream beds. That's what I bought it for. mpg 18 town, 23 hwy. 126k miles, run Mobil 1, replaced tires, dash temp control, tune up,brakes, in all these miles. I take this where 4x4 trucks and larger 4x4's won't go because of the limited size. Interior is leather, comfortable, seats 5, fold down rear seats for anything,paint has held up in our sun with wax but bushes have put desert pen stripes everywhere. I intend to get another used one with a tow bar installed so I can tow it behind my truck and camper.




Great choice in vehicles

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

I purchased this vehicle new in 2001 after doing a lot of research. I could be happier with my choice. I love it and have never had a real issue with this SUV. The only maintenance has been oil changes, windshield wipers and tires - it still has its original brakes, etc. It did have one minor recall issue that was fixed easily by the dealership. I have done some off-roading and felt very secure. The back end is light, but add a couple of sand bags in the winter and it does great in 4WD. It is a pleasure to drive on or off road.




Best damn little suv on

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

Our Suzuki Grand Vatara has never had a warranty claim. Tires and brakes are the only extra maintance given to this Bullet Proof little Bulldog other than normal checks. My wife wanted a 4 door, Suv, Straight Stick sports car with a sun roof and Leather. She said, "No sidewinders please." The CV joints on her old Honda cost$750.00 replace, no more of that.




Suzuki grand vitarra--2001

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

I was disappointed in the fuel economy. The vehicle is also somewhat unstable in the back during inclement weathe. Even at low speeds the rear end tends to fishtail around curves during rain or drizzle.
