Review of the 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara

  • An aging compact SUV increasingly outdistanced by the competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Standard V6, distinctive looks, impressive list of standard features, low-range transfer case with the 4WD option.

  • Cons

    Harsh suspension, unimpressive brakes, cramped rear seats, lack of cargo space.

  • What's New for 2003

    For 2003, Suzuki has updated the dashboard and console for a higher quality look. Other additions this year include aluminum wheels, a seven-speaker stereo system with a CD player, adjustable center armrest with CD storage, an overhead console with reading lamps and storage compartments and a smaller rear headrest design for better reward visibility. Also of note: the Limited model has been dropped this year and last year's JLS and JLX models have been merged, leaving only one trim level for 2003.

Good bang for the buck

Overall I am happy with the Suzuki. Ride is on the hard side even for a SUV. MPG average is 20... acceptable but could use more power... good for around town but NOT good on the highway as it needs constant steering input. Make sure you get the front end alignment checked mine was out over 20 degrees...




Love my suzuki
