2004 Suzuki Vitara SUV LX Rwd 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is a great "little SUV!" It's compact enough to fit into any compact space and it's soooo fun to drive. It's a little jerky but I think that's the charm of it plus mine is manual so it's extra fun and animated! I have only had it for a year, but I haven't had ANY problems mechanical, electrical or otherwise. I drove across the country with it and it is still in superb condition. It has been very reliable! I am absolutely in LOVE with my Vitara, I recommend this vehicle to anyone who wants their cars to be reliable with personality (not in a bad way).


Favorite Features

The manual transmission, compact size, and sturdy make.


Suggested Improvements

Hmmm, it would be nice to have the back seat be able to fold all the way down. It only folds over to an extent.

2004 Suzuki Vitara SUV LX 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

So far, this small SUV has been very enjoyable to drive. The vehicle handles well and it accelerates into traffic very well, though it does seem to lack power going uphill. Overall, I am very satisfied with my new SUV. Excellent value for the money.


Favorite Features

The ability to switch into 4wheel drive on the fly. Very easy to do.


Suggested Improvements

Needs more power going uphill. The V6 is very good getting into traffic, but is lacking power on hills.

2004 Suzuki Vitara SUV LX 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I only paid $17,300 for the top of the line Vitara. Much less than competitors. Wife got the small car she likes and I got a 4WD I wanted for Oregon winters. I have a mini-van if I need lots of room.


Favorite Features

Looks great, perfect size for us, and lots of standard accessories, a true 4- wheel drive for off road and icy/wet weather.


Suggested Improvements

larger/wider tires for the 16" wheels would make it a little more stable at freeway speeds

Review

The vehicle is a good mode of transportation, but if you have children, it is not the car for you. The vehicle's preformance is excellent, but it is just TOO SMALL.


Favorite Features

Handling is excellent, not many people have one.


Suggested Improvements

Improve on the cabin space a little, and put a better stereo in the vehicle!
