2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury 4dr SUV 4WD (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
With only 15K on the vehicle I can't say much about reliability, but they got everything right the first time. I also have a 08 XL7 with 40K and neither has ever been to the shop xcept for routine maintenance. One of the first things I did was check out the 4x4 capabilities and I was surprised how well it did. My only complaint is not enough clearance and no skid plates. I have seen some complaints about gas milage but I am really happy with it. Although some x-overs may do better it does well for a true 4x4. I am doing better than most people will, ave. 23.5 this winter and 24.7 since the alcohol was removed for the summer. I do drive 95% highway miles. Overall I love it.
Good visability, ease of parking, New 3.2 l V6, Stability control system actually works well. Nice flat cargo area.
Electric seat adjustment More ground clearence and skid plates. Would like to see tire pressures not just a warning light.
