Vehicle
2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara XSport 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5A)
Review
all 4 tires only lasted 1yr, 17'' rims just makes it very expensive to replace tires and spare only had 16''rim, 6 cd player ate my cds and to replace costs hundreds, replaced battery 3X already, replaced both headlights 3X already, replaced broken rear shock that caused the car to fishtail in bad weather, was told it was a 4WD when I bought it but wasn't, seats very uncomfortable and hard, dummy lights continue to come on randomly, brakes always squealed, interior light just fell into pieces, if your auto headlight switch is off, which is hidden behind the steering wheel, you can be driving at night with no tail lights. very dangerous, window cracks too easy. 2nd window cracking. Etc Etc..
Favorite Features
pros..... heated seats, sun roof, cruise control (hardly use these features), easy to see ''clock, temp, and mph'' feature on the dash, if I had long arms, the middle arm rest would be comfortable to use, traction control would be nice if the car wouldn't vibrate ''in use'' like it was falling apart, this vehicle was made only if your comute was within 10 miles per trip.
Suggested Improvements
Bought '06 Grand Vitara off showroom floor brand new. Has lots of cheap upgrades. Everything is falling apart from day 1 and we are adults in our late 40's not teenagers that are rough with cars. the body is a cheap metal that easily dents at a touch, winshield is a joke, suggested tires don't last long, hard seats gives us backaches after 20 miles of driving, every dummy light in the dashboard comes on and off all the time and the dealer has no Idea why, maybe a lemon but I'm stuck with it as it will never sell as is. Replacement parts over priced and both suzuki dealers intown closed there doors. Closest dealer is now about 400 miles away. Next car WILL be an American made.
