2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX 4dr SUV 4WD


I brought this little suv brand new 10 yrs ago. Its been really good for the most part. Only problems are a/c condenser and the steering rack needed replaced (after driving on nyc roads for 10 yrs, I don't blame the car). Also, the body panels had to be glued back on twice (Suzuki covered). I still own it but due to my kids getting bigger and needing a pick-up for yard work, its getting traded in soon (I'll miss it).

Best Features

Fuel Economy. I wasn't expecting Toyota Corolla mileage but it's pretty good for a v6 SUV (about 300-325 miles per tank). Added after market tow package and car pulls trailer with ease.

Worst Features

Seat comfort. I get back discomfort after driving more than 1 hr. Better glue for body panels. Better tires, originals wore out in 30K (this SUV seems to go through tires quickly and they're not cheap to replace).
