2004 Suzuki Vitara SUV LX Rwd 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
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).
The manual transmission, compact size, and sturdy make.
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.

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.
The ability to switch into 4wheel drive on the fly. Very easy to do.
Needs more power going uphill. The V6 is very good getting into traffic, but is lacking power on hills.
