2001 Suzuki XL-7 Plus 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
Had the car from dealer's lot brand new.
Few facts about this car:
1) the engine bay has a flex bar across it
2) the frame is liquid filled to reduce vibration
3) came with direct electronic ignition as opposed to plugs and wires.
4) has third row of seat.
5) OEM tires are exact same as Lexus RX300, Dueler HT.
The front brake wears out lot quicker than what I'm used to. Amazingly, the rear drum brake has never been changed and it always passes the inspection. It's on 170,000 mile now.
Comes with lot of upgrade if you really into it. I installed rear catch net, rear door net storage, window rain deflector.
Overall, you can not find any other car like this even today 2013 that is true 4x4
4x4 when you need it.
