Review of the 2003 Suzuki Vitara

  • The small SUV segment has some pretty heavy hitters for this year, and the Vitara is being squeezed out of its market share. Having off-road capability and being a convertible isn't a strong enough draw for buyers.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Available two-door soft-top body style, truck-based body-on-frame construction means off-road capability.

  • Cons

    Meager cargo space, cramped rear seats, lacks refinement.

  • What's New for 2003

    Besides the merging of the JLS and JLX trim levels, not much has changed for the Suzuki Vitara this year.

Great little car

Vehicle: 2003 Suzuki Vitara Rwd 2dr Soft Top SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

This is my mid-life fun car - although I'm a good 20 years past midlife (61). Great for toodling around town, to the beach and commuting. Seems like the gas mileage should be a little better, but I get 26 on the road and 24 around town. Had no use for the tiny back seat so i took it out - now I have a mini truck/convertible/sportscar.




Convertible suv???

Vehicle: 2003 Suzuki Vitara Rwd 2dr Soft Top SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

It was a total mistake to purchase this car. The guy told me that the top was easy to put down and really fun with it down. It's nearly impossible to get it down. I hate this car. It's an imbarresment to own and my daughter thinks that it is pretty cool, though. The engine is so weak and a stick shift? Who the heck puts a stick shift in an SUV? At least it is a 5 speed.
