2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury 4dr SUV 4WD (2.7L 6cyl 5A)
Loved my Grand Vitara when I bought it new. Now have 65K+ miles on it, have replaced a headlight bulb, dome bulb has burned out, replaced tires at 40K miles, 3 recalls, and recently power steering rack had to be replaced. Had to replace strut mount bearings as well. It also smells musty every time it rains, but cannot find where any water is coming in. Would not buy another Suzuki. Owned a 1995 Suzuki Sidekick for 4 years, and absolutely loved it, no problems at all. Disappointed in my Grand Vitara. Road noise is also very loud..seems to get worse as miles are added to vehicle.
Keyless entry and start-up. Roomy interior, plenty of cup-holders. Exterior design.
Reduce cabin noise, improve mechanical function to avoid repeat repairs.
