Great little SUV
By Pleased Owner on
2007 Suzuki XL7 Luxury 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Bought this car new at the end of the model year and have been pleased with it in nearly every respect. The engine is fast revving and powerful, a real surprise the first time I hit passing gear, zips 15 - 20 mph quickly when passing from 65 or 70. I get 17 mpg in city and have averaged 24 - 28 mpg on the highway @ 75 mph. Turning radius is as good or better than other SUV I have owned.
Gas mileage, peppy engine, AWD, auto temp control. The car almost drives itself, responsive steering and road holding. I have owned around forty different vehicles including some which were quite pricey; my XL7 is one of the most satisfying. Customer service has been great.
Road noise deadening. Rear seats need to fold down securely and provide a flat cargo space; the current system was an apparent after thought and is the poorest I've seen. Forget the pickup truck and release an improved version of the XL7. The P/U market is glutted. The smaller SUV is too small.
