2002 Suzuki XL-7 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)
I went shopping for a Ford Escape/Mazda
Tribute and came home with the Suzuki.
After having 3 dealers tell me that I
really should drive the XL-7, I
reluctantly tried one...I loved it. It
was quieter, handled better and was
more roomy than many of the bigger
SUV's that I tried. The AT shifts very
smoothly, and it has just the right
amount of bells and whistles. Very
solid vehicle. This vehicle is
deceptively quick and motors well at
highway speeds and beyond.
Two Speed Transfer case, wide opening rear door, privacy glass, cargo cover, Smooth Ride, Flexible rear seating. Very quiet running gear (other than the T-Case).
Fuel economy could be better, but not awful at 21 all around driving, 24 on the highway. Transfer case whine is excessive, but probably due to how quiet the vehicle is overall.....you don't hear the motor running or the exhaust going down the road.
2002 Suzuki XL-7 Plus 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)
The truck is narrow, agile handling,
quick off the line making it great for
tight spots in crowded places, yet long
enough to give plenty of inside room.
Not suitable as a long distance
cruiser. Seats are too small for long
drives, wind noise high at speeds over
65. Fuel tank range limited to 300
miles per fillup.
Dual a/c, really fast from stop (only up to 30mph), great handling for a truck, good visibility, 3rd row seats.
Bigger gas tank, bigger seats, better interior plastics, flat folding 3rd row seats, removable 2nd row seats
2002 Suzuki XL-7 Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
We bought this vehicle for the express
purpose of using it to tour the U.S.
(and be able to go anyway) when we
retired, and knowing the third seat
will be down 99% of the time. Have had
the vehicle 18 months now, with only
required maintenance done on it and
regularly get 20-21 mpg. This is one
vehicle I have no problem recommeding
Great turning radius; gas mileage; heated seats (yes, even in Florida); and outstanding styling.
Power front seats - at least driver's; additonal power outlets; built in compass.
2002 Suzuki XL-7 Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
This SUV is an excellent, exciting
alternative to a minivan for morning
carpool, especially with elementary
schoolers. Second-graders are able to
work the 7-passenger seating mechanisms
fine, and fight over doing so! Seating
is exceptionally comfortable for 4
adults, and it works fine for 5-child
transport... all behind the front row.
So far I've enjoyed this vehicle as
much as or more than as any that I've
owned, including several Toyotas, a
BMW, a Nissan, an Isuzu, Chevys, a
couple of Fords and our current Honda
Panoramic front seat view. Safety ratings exceed BMW and Mercedes. Body- on-frame design gives a very exciting, sporty ride unlike unibody designs. Leather interior, sunroof, running boards, daytime running lights, front/rear air, and standard CD are standard.
The only improvement that I can suggest is on cosmetic durability, especially with the interior plastic. It scratches easily. I understand that this problem has been addressed with the 2003 models.
2002 Suzuki XL-7 Touring 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)
I searched for months to find an SUV
with high safety ratings, comes with
many options and a low price. This was
it! I compared this SUV with the
Toyota RAV-4, Jeep Liberty, & Ford
Escape to find this was the best deal
and a safe vehicle, unlike some of the
above. I have not been dissappointed
yet! I love this SUV. It's exactly
what I wanted and expected.
Fold down 3rd seat, makes large amt of cargo room-great for my 2 large dogs! Heated side mirrors are wonderful. Side arm rests are great! Love the rear tinted glass too.
Moldings between various exterior panels lose paint quickly.
