2004 Suzuki XL-7 LX III 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5A)
We have 4 children, ages 2-10 with one
on the way.. My wife doesnt want to
drive a tank, I dont want to pay for
one... Our solution??? THE XL-7..
The interior is perfect for our family.
It seats all of us comfortably without
making us feel like we should be paid
$0.36 a mile and be home on weekends.
It came with all the features we
wanted, 4 wheel drive, pwr windows,
locks, mirrors, and numerous
cupholders. The engine pulls strongly
all the way to the redline..
power, comfort, 4 wd is great.. we love
everything about it
slightly longer wheelbase.. 8-10 inches
would be PERFECT!!!! or have external
Bought my first Suzuki 4X4 SUV in 1989
and every few years, look at the
marketplace to see if I can fine a
better value coupled with reliabilty. I
can't!! Drove my 2003 4X4 XL7 from
Florida to Alaska, packed full of our
stuff and pulling the biggest U-Haul
trailer I could get. Flawless! Not a
problem! Did the Alaska winter with 8
Feet of snow. Again...perfect
performance. Let the Hummer owners pay
twice as much for half the reliabilty
and performance. Idiots!! Lose your ego
and go Suzuki. Wife drives the 2003 XL7
and I drive a 1993 Sidekick 4X4. I
guess I'm hooked. Money saved bought
Great Ergonomics. I'm over 6 feet tall
and about 200 lbs. Plenty of head room.
The new XL7 is great as is. We've spent
hours sitting inside driving from
Florida to Alaska. No complaints.
Very disappointed with the ride, feels
like I am riding in a wagon. You feel
every bump in the road, even went as
far as lowering air pressure in tires.
Love everthing else about it.Maybe I
should have bought a car.
After reviewing and test driving 19
Midsize SUV's and owning Luxury SUV's
for the last 5 years we can the
conclusion the Suzuki is by far the
best value in the market. Dimensions
similar if not larger than Jeep's Grand
Cherokee. Fuel economy at 22mpg hwy (24
observed). Luxury features in the EX
with a True 4wd system on a truck frame
with a car like ride all for $25k
LOADED make this one choice you must
look into. Pound for pound or dollar
for dollar you will not find another
vehicle that comes close. Rear leg room
is actually better than specifications
show, nearly 40" with a 5'10" driver.
True 4wd system. Truck like frame with
car like ride. Luxury features! Suzuki
