Does what I need it to
By grouse on
2003 Suzuki Vitara 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought the Vitara because of the 4 wheel drive system, I need that low range. Included, is a comfortable ride, good handling, and enough cargo space for my son and I to go camping with all our gear (and drag along my boat or put the canoe on top). Reliability has been top notch and I take it places where people say "how did you get that up here". It is underpowered and consequently fuel mileage is so-so, I can't wait to get my hands on an 09 2.4L 4 cylinder - more power, more room, and better mileage (I hope).Had one since 1990 - probably always will.
low range 4wd. comfortable seats and a decent ride. excellent handling.
I believe they followed my suggestions for improvments nearly to the letter i.e. bring back the 4 cyl and bump it up to 2.4L. More cargo space and more ground clearance (didn't get the clearance).
