2002 Suzuki XL-7 Plus 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The truck is narrow, agile handling,
quick off the line making it great for
tight spots in crowded places, yet long
enough to give plenty of inside room.

Not suitable as a long distance
cruiser. Seats are too small for long
drives, wind noise high at speeds over
65. Fuel tank range limited to 300
miles per fillup.


Best Features

Dual a/c, really fast from stop (only up to 30mph), great handling for a truck, good visibility, 3rd row seats.


Worst Features

Bigger gas tank, bigger seats, better interior plastics, flat folding 3rd row seats, removable 2nd row seats

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


Review

We bought this vehicle for the express
purpose of using it to tour the U.S.
(and be able to go anyway) when we
retired, and knowing the third seat
will be down 99% of the time. Have had
the vehicle 18 months now, with only
required maintenance done on it and
regularly get 20-21 mpg. This is one
vehicle I have no problem recommeding
to others.


Best Features

Great turning radius; gas mileage; heated seats (yes, even in Florida); and outstanding styling.


Worst Features

Power front seats - at least driver's; additonal power outlets; built in compass.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Panoramic front seat view. Safety ratings exceed BMW and Mercedes. Body- on-frame design gives a very exciting, sporty ride unlike unibody designs. Leather interior, sunroof, running boards, daytime running lights, front/rear air, and standard CD are standard.


Worst Features

The only improvement that I can suggest is on cosmetic durability, especially with the interior plastic. It scratches easily. I understand that this problem has been addressed with the 2003 models.

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


Review

I searched for months to find an SUV
with high safety ratings, comes with
many options and a low price. This was
it! I compared this SUV with the
Toyota RAV-4, Jeep Liberty, & Ford
Escape to find this was the best deal
and a safe vehicle, unlike some of the
above. I have not been dissappointed
yet! I love this SUV. It's exactly
what I wanted and expected.


Best Features

Fold down 3rd seat, makes large amt of cargo room-great for my 2 large dogs! Heated side mirrors are wonderful. Side arm rests are great! Love the rear tinted glass too.


Worst Features

Moldings between various exterior panels lose paint quickly.

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


Review

I have owned my XL-7 for 2 months and
still am very much in love with it. It
is fun to drive, good in turns and
after switching to synthetic oil, have
been getting 25 mpg on the freeway.


Best Features

2 speed transfer case, design, cargo room and plenty of room for my 6'3" frame!


Worst Features

Bigger tires, better shocks, and rear seats that fold flat.
