Review of the 2002 Suzuki XL-7

  • By offering a third-row seat in a compact SUV, Suzuki answers a question not many people are asking; but if yo're one of them, the XL-7 is worth a look.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Affordable base price, competent on- and off-road handling, stylish design.

  • Cons

    Cramped second- and third-row seating, interior materials don't match otherwise premium package, side airbags not available.

  • What's New for 2002

    For 2002, the XL-7's 2.7-liter V6 engine has been upgraded to produce more power. Inside, all XL-7 models have gained features such as the LATCH child seat system, improved cargo floor design and new upholstery. All Standard and Plus models now offer optional ABS brakes, while the line-topping Limited Edition's interior gains woodgrain trim and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Suzuki offers 24-hour emergency roadside assistance and towing for the duration of the vehicle's warranty to increase customer satisfaction.

Watch out for the air

Vehicle: 2002 Suzuki XL-7 Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

My advice is to do serious research on the XL-7. The a/c compressor has a serious habit of freezing up and breaking the drive belt. This is not a cheap fix. I pulled the B04 relay and just went without the a/c. Brakes are not that great and go out frequently and trying to find someone outside the dealership to work on it is not fun! Oh and the 2001 and 2002 models tend to loose their gas door (as in it comes off).




A very fun-tional vehicle

Vehicle: 2002 Suzuki XL-7 Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

This SUV is an excellent, exciting alternative to a minivan for morning carpool, especially with elementary schoolers. Second-graders are able to work the 7-passenger seating mechanisms fine, and fight over doing so! Seating is exceptionally comfortable for 4 adults, and it works fine for 5-child transport... all behind the front row. So far I've enjoyed this vehicle as much as or more than as any that I've owned, including several Toyotas, a BMW, a Nissan, an Isuzu, Chevys, a couple of Fords and our current Honda Odessey.
