Fun car to drive for light offroading!
By Jeff on


2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I've had this car for 3 years and so far it's been very reliable. The only problem I've had is brakes that shimmy. This car is a bit bumpy but the stiff suspension helps out when offroading.(needs more clearance though) My biggest complaint is the cheap plastic side panels. I've made several repairs on them already and the Nevada sun is causing the paint to peel. If your thinking of buying one go for it as long as you don't mind the side panels falling off ocasionally.

Best Features

My Suzuki is fun to drive off road. It is very manuverable, fits into tiny spaces, with a great turning radius. It's also easy to see where I'm going. It's one of only a few mini SUV's with 4 wheel low.

Worst Features

Loose the plastic paneling. Leave room to install larger tires.
