2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5A)


I decided to write a review as I kept seeing lower reviews for this model. I have no idea why. I have owed over 15 cars (all new over the years), and this is a nice SUV. In over 60,000 miles, I have not had to take the car in for any type of warranty work at all. Just the normal oil & lubes and maintenance. My front brakes finally had to be replaced at around 42,000. My only complaint is that the MPG is too low for this size SUV with a 6 cylinder. I get a combined of around 18. I feel it should get at least 20. Other than that, the pricing was great and I have absolutely no complaints.

Best Features

Great sound system. Sporty feel to the drive. (at 52,000 I replaced the original tires with about 1 inch wider tires, but the same height to not mess up the speedometer.

Worst Features

Get a more fuel efficient engine, or put duals on it to help the existing engine. About 1 inch wider and 1 inch more leg room for rear seat passengers would be great.
