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.
Manuverability (Tight turning), flexibility (It will carry a bunch of stuff), and reliability, (It has started everyday for over two years.) This car has a simple engine with plenty of power. It also has a a full size spare that can be rotated with the rest of the tires.
It could use an opening rear glass gate. Include the luggare rack cross memebers with the base cost of the car.
