2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I guess Suzuki is the "poor man's Toyota". The cheapest of all the Japanese SUVs, but for much less money - is worth it. Very customer-friendly transferrable warranty, and good customer service. Not quite a Toyota, Honda, Nissan, or Mazda, but I predict Suzuki will catch up to the other Japanese automakers soon.
Transferrable 7 yr./100,000 mi. powertrain warranty, fully loaded with options and still very affordable, moonroof, hard leather-like seats, nice power for a 2.5L/V-6.
More cargo room needed, improve overall gas mileage, cruise control needs improvement.
