2007 Suzuki XL7 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Believe every bad review you read they are all True. I bought the XL7 with 115,000 miles on it, drove it for 2 months and its been in the shop for 7 months. Just found out it needs a new engine, and the cost will be $4300. I loved the look and the room, but this car is a money pit.

Review

Was a great mid suv for the price , loved it , until 60 mile then $7000 in repairs later and might as well have bought a Toyota . Note.. a lot of the parts are cheveys not Suzuki !!!!!

So in order of problems starter motor, fuel cap caused lots of error codes, timing chain had to be replaced, both catalytic converters, water pump. all from 60 mile to 100 miles ... now at 118 miles heater is sometimes working !!! and the list keeps growing . Stuck with it till dies now .

Drives really well lol

Review

These vehicles are nothing but money pits!! Just got rid of mine finally ('07 with 97k) white paint started peeling at 50k and found out it's a paint defect Suzuki will not fix. Then the turn signal stalk quit turning off and the speedo would show you going 140 mph when your only going 60 mph. Then the check engine light came on and found out the timing belt was needing replaced...3k later and about 8 months it came back on again same issue. Turns out it's a common issue in this engine along with sludge build up resulting in a need for a new engine....even though changed oil every 3000 miles. Again it's a design flaw that's common. STAY AWAY!!!! At all cost!!!


Best Features

Space behind the seats was plentiful.....that's all


Worst Features

They need to take everyone they built and crush them!

Review

i got this car brand new. loved it then problems came. i had to have the transmission replaced before i hit 25,000 miles driving home form work and the car stops moving on the expressway in the first and second gear. sutton replace it. now the car jumps when you change from drive to reverse. they told me they couldnt do anything about that. now when you are slowing down and the car or suv gets to first it acts like you have a manual and you shifted down. still they dont know whats wrong and cant fix it. so i have soured on this car waiting dont really know what to do with it.

Review

Attracted first by looks, then acceleraton, then sound system, then fit. 2wd w/traction control. Car has a tendency to wander almost as if each wheel at times has a different amount of power than the other. We drive it but not as often as we would like because. Dealer has no explanation. Seems better without traction control. Wouldn't buy another one if it had a hint of this behavior. Love my 92 Jeep and 95 Subuaru. Suzuki looks good in the driveway.


Best Features

Engine performance, smooth shifts, styling, sound system.


Worst Features

Traction stability and it should drive sraight without much in the way of driver correction or attention. Mine doesn't. Back up distance alarm.
