2 1/2 years old -- a look back and ahead
By SilverGirl on
2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
This is my second Suzuki, first one was an 1987 Samari, I had for 15 years. But the 2002 has had a few recalls. This vehicle has had all the recommended maintenance. It was a reliable and fun vehicle until 18000 miles. Now I am told the engine needs to be replaced. The dealer has had it for over two weeks with no estimated completion date. The dealer was quick to give me a rental car. New cars in the past were reliable, I do not know what has happened to the quality. I miss my Suzuki and hope it comes home soon! I think in the future I will lease a vehicle instead of buying....

Move the power window switches on door down a few inches. Provide better quality tires. Provide "On Star" option.
