2002 Suzuki XL-7 Plus 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have had nothing but problems with my 2002 Suzuki XL-7. The front end has had continous noise and problems, and it literally eats tires every 15,000 miles. The steering wheel has always made noise, and the air conditioner froze and leaked water all over the passenger at 5,000 miles, All the other problems started at 15,000 miles. I would not suggest buying this vehicle. I have had it in the shop 1- 2 times a month. I can't wait to get rid of it, and I will never buy another Suzuki. After ten attempts to fix it, I have been told it is not fixable. Off to lemon law court we go.


Favorite Features

I wish I had one...


Suggested Improvements

The gas mileage is horrible. 15 mpg is not good enough for a V6 vehicle, for that I could own a V8.

2002 Suzuki XL-7 Touring 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Over all the xl-7 is not too bad, but the driver's seat area is too narrrow. Also the floor heat is very bad doesn't hardly work even. And that is not a good thing for living in Central New York. Alot of people are complaining about the access of the oil filter. It is a bit of a pain but oce you get the hag of it it isn't as bad.


Favorite Features

Everything is pretty standard nothing really stands out on it


Suggested Improvements

Different tires, not as wide and taller. Move the tire off the back end and put it under it some how or maybe a lower trunk area below the back storage area.

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


Review

Overall a very reliable vehicle. However, I would admit this is no luxury SUV but for the price a very good value. Build quality is somewhat questionable. Dealer support is good as is the service that accompanies it.


Favorite Features

Leather seating, heated seats, value forprice. Warrany is outstanding. Suzuki stands behind what it sells.


Suggested Improvements

Additional leg room for adults (6'0" andover). Improve fuel economy

Review

Good SUV for the money. Liked 3rd seat compared to cost of other SUV's. But have had problems with seal at waterpump, dealer fixed twice. Lousy MPG - no better than 15-16 mpg. And terrible defroster !! And crummy tires. Dunlops, just about bald at 20K.


Favorite Features

Price & size. Good looks.


Suggested Improvements

Defrost system and better tires.
