8 years and 38K miles later - XL-7 still runs great!
By ihot on
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.
The Suzuki XL-7 is the perfect mid size SUV for moms who don't want a BIG SUV or the expensive gas bill!
The price and warranty are the best. I paid $18K for my new LX.
It has a very competitive price for a small budget. It is a strong compact SUV on a truck base. I bought it instead of Honda/Hyundai Sante Fe for its price, warranty and looks!!
Only problem is its door's remote - our dealer fixed it 3 times - but it still breaks after a few days.
