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


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!

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


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.

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


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.

Review

We just purchased this rig a few days ago with 33k. The first thing we did was take it on about a three hour trip. We love the roomy interior. Seats were pretty comfortable. I had plenty of leg and head room. The accellaration was great! Fuel econommy accoring to the onboard trip computer hit 26mpg on the freeway. Lots of cargo room. For the price we feel this is an excellent value. I see some people are whinning about cheap inerior panels. Sure they could be better. If you want better get off your wallet and buy a Caddillac or something. For the price we feel this rig is an excellent value. If we wanted nicer we would have spent more money. This has all the features and comfort we need.


Best Features

Easy access cargo area.


Worst Features

More power outlets. We are sales reps and need some more gaget power, and an on board built in inverter would be nice.

Review

well, going on 2 yrs and this has been a very good car for us, comfy on long trips to Montana from seattle and was even getting 27 mpg on that trip. Generally getting 19 around town. It has a large gas tank compared to most SUVs in its class even though I honestly wish it was a 20 gallon tank. HUGE cargo capacity for this class of suv, you can really load it up. It's not top notch but we only paid $19 grand for it, Got around great in 6 inch snow and just cable chains on the front tires. We looked at trading it in but after looking at all the other SUVs, the fuel economy, and the cost of those SUVs we decided to just keep it. Unfortunately, this car really lost a lot of its value.


Best Features

Roomy, Smooth ride, Large gas tank.


Worst Features

Doesn"t matter... They no longer make the XL7 as of 2009
