Suzuki XL-7 4X4 still running
By pcabral on


2001 Suzuki XL-7 Plus 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Aside from the breaks, exhaust, tires, tie rods,balljoints and wear and tear items this rig has pulled a 3000 lbs. boat w/trailer and transported our family around for 239000 with original transmission and rear end. The engine was replaced due to a mishap with the "fast oil change place"not tightening down the oil plug, so My replacement engine has 50,000 less than the body and purrs like a cat.Self-adjusting timimg chain and all. Love this beast, and 22 mpg with 4x4 capable is an awsome value for reliable and capable travel. Keep an eye on the rust especially the frame and treat it early. This rig is a one owner (13 years) and I don't look forward to getting rid of it.

Best Features

4X4,rear wheel drive,seating for 7, rugged,excellant engine and self adjusting timing chain still going after 239000 mi.easy in/out due to wide doors.rear air conditioner,plenty of room, on board tool kit, rear mounted full size spare and plenty of ground clearance from front and rear for rough roads.

Worst Features

Front bumper end caps, Rust on passenger side frame and unibody,better cup holders and more room for it, accessory plug for driver, fuel warning light/reminder not present (wow)sounds standard to me!
