2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury 4dr SUV 4WD (2.7L 6cyl 5A)
Have owned my GV since October, 2005. It now has 52,000 miles. So far have only replaced front brake pads once, power steering idler pulley (under recall), oil changes, coolant, wiper blades, headlight bulbs (twice) and a new set of tires at 40,000 mi. The vehicle has been trouble free minus the recall above. I have no real complaints with reliability/durability. Wish fuel mileage were better. Has held up quite well.
Heated seats in the winter. Comfortable front seats, roomy rear seats, effective A/C /heater unit. Looks/design.
Improved Fuel Mileage. Ride can be a bit harsh, but it is the trade off for a "real" off road SUV.
