Review of the 2004 Suzuki XL-7

  • By offering a third-row seat in a compact SUV, Suzuki answers a question not many people are asking.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Affordable base price, competent on- and off-road handling, available seven-passenger seating.

  • Cons

    Cramped second- and third-row seating, dated cabin design, low-grade interior plastics, side airbags not available.

  • What's New for 2004

    The XL-7 receives minor updates to the exterior and equipment list. The Touring and Limited models have been renamed EX III and LX III. The front grille and bumper have been reworked, and the foglights, taillights and headlights all have a new look. The front-passenger airbags are now multistage, and there's a new panic button on the keyless remote. Lastly, the V6 engine gets two additional horsepower for a total of 185, and the automatic transmission is now a five-speed unit.

Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki XL-7 LX Rwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5A)

It's June 2012, 8 years and 38K miles after we purchased our XL-7, and it still runs great! It handles well and rides fairly comfortably, although the gas mileage could be better. Blind spots where the backseat headrests and the spare tire cover are can cause problems at times.

Good little car

Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki XL-7 EX Rwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5A)

I test drove almost every SUV made including the Navigator, Escalade, and Lexus. The XL-7 doesn't have the luxury of these SUVs but for the money, it surpassed all the others that we tried. It handles well and rides fairly comfortably, although the gas mileage could be better. Blind spots where the backseat headrests and the spare tire cover are can cause problems at times. All in all I've no problems with performance AND I've gotten quite a few compliments on the body style also. This would be a great business vehicle!

Love it!

Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki XL-7 EX III 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5A)

The Suzuki XL-7 is the perfect mid size SUV for moms who don't want a BIG SUV or the expensive gas bill! It is kid friendly and easy to maintain! It's comfortable on long trips! I suggest the third seat option, just in case you need it! :) This truck has great storage and gets great gas mileage!

Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki XL-7 LX III 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5A)

The Suzuki XL-7 is a great SUV. It would be much better though if they offered more power and towing capacity. the 2.7 liter engine is too weak.




Durable but needs to have

Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki XL-7 LX Rwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)

I enjoy driving my XL-7 around town but do not like taking it on long trips due to the rough ride. The ride is very bumpy and uncomfortable. I read that the '07 model will have a smoother ride. If that's the case I wouldn't hesitate to consider purchasing one. The price and warranty are good. Its reliability is good. I have not had any problems.
