2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My husband was in a four car crash in 2002 in our 2001 Gr Vitara Limited, there were two fatalities in this accident. We feel that the safety features of the Gr Vitara was definitely put to the test in this accident, even though the airbags did not deploy. The vehicle was totaled, but due to the lack of injuries sustained, we felt the safety features were a definite reason to replace it with another like vehicle. The 2002 Gr Vitara Limited had heated seats and side mirror defrosters, both options are great!


Best Features

Heated seats and sun roof


Worst Features

better gas mileage, overall not bad for 4wd

2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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....


Best Features

rear fold down seats, rear privacy glass, gas mileage, comfort, heater works well


Worst Features

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

2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Love this car. Bought new, had for over a year. Comfortable, fun to drive, fun to off-road with. Taken many out-of- state road trips and it has always been reliable and ready to go. Great car for the affordable price. Wouldn't hesitate to but again.


Best Features

Defrosting mirrors, cruise, plug-in in the rear of the car, roof rack, tinted windows, daytime lights.


Worst Features

Rear wiper blade should offer slow mode, I think that's about my only complaint.

2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Fun to drive, affordable, though not very economical as far as gas goes. 4x4 is fun to use, and helpful in certain weather. Sturdy and enjoyable little ride.


Best Features

Nice standard stereo system, comfy seats. Love the side mirror defrost ability.


Worst Features

A little tougher engine with more "umph." A little time-consuming to lay back seats down for more room.
