Decent Transportation
By Jim in KC on


2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX 4dr SUV 4WD


Purchased JLX+ new in February 2000.
This vehicle has served its purpose
well- fairly inexpensive, reliable
transportation. It has been
mechanically sound. It has pretty good
acceleration when merging into highway
traffic or passing. It's easy to
handle in traffic. The 4wd has been
great in snow, except the vehicle is
light and can seem a little "floaty".
Surprisingly, this vehicle has more
headroom than most SUV's. I'm 6'5".
The legroom is okay for around town,
but for long hauls it gets a little
cramped. And forget about anyone
riding behind me in the back seat.
There is quite a bit of
wind noise and rattling.

Best Features

Decent gas mileage, although I think something this small should do better. Handles well. Easy to maneuver in traffic, parking, etc.

Worst Features

Under seat CD changer is kind of a pain. Poor design of radio controls. Rear door should swing other direction - away from curb. Seats need more leg support.
