2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I looked at the Honda CRV and Toyota RAV4, but I felt that the design and build quality of the Suzuki Grand Vitara were far superior. This vehicle is driven mainly on interstates across the Northeast and it has never let me down. With the V6 engine and a 5-speed transmission, it's a blast to drive. Its fuel economy has been approximately 24 mpg highway, which is outstanding for a V6.


Best Features

The climate control heater and radio controls on wheel. Its body on frame construction makes it a true SUV. It doesn't have the flex that most "unibody" platform SUVs have on rough terrain.


Worst Features

None, just keep the quality at current or higher level.

2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara Rwd 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

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...


Best Features

Good for around town. Nice interior. Size is great for parking and back roads.


Worst Features

Inprove highway stability. Driver seat should have ability to raise. (up and down) Add about 20% more HP. Improve ride quality.

Review

This is an excellent car for in most
categories.

The major problem is interior room.
Children even have a hard time sitting
in the back seat. However, the car is
great for around town and has plenty of
power to play with.

Solid construction.


Best Features

Power, economy


Worst Features

Increase the seat spacing front and rear.

Review

This car has had electronic problems
since day one. Most recently, the air
conditioner went out. After only a
year and a half, they said the hoses
leading to and from the condensor have
coroded. In addition, the lights,
speakers, and remote unlock features
have been problems.

If you are going off road or on the

buck.
