2002 Suzuki XL-7 Plus 4WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Back in '96 I purchased a new Suzuki Tracker 4x4 convertible. It was probably the best all around vehicle I have ever owned...fun to drive, never got stuck ANYWHERE, stingy on the gas and an easy to maintain stylish interior(for the money). So in 2000, when Chevy introduced the Chevy Tracker 4dr 4x4...I just HAD to have it! It had an upgraded goodies package that raised the price to $21,000. I couldn't WAIT to turn that thing in when the lease was up, it was awful and nothing but problems! In 2005 I came across a used XL-7, took it for a test drive and fell in love all over again. It is everything I loved about the Sidekick in a bigger, beefier package! Sorry Chevy, but Suzuki wins this one hands down.

Best Features

This vehicle has a solid body and handling, great looks inside and out, lots of cab and cargo room, easy to maneuver dash and controls, privacy glass, a nice sound system, power everything standard, an easy clean interior, very peppy engine, and ME behind the wheel!

Worst Features

Offer intermittent control for the rear wiper, CD storage, better "drip resistance" from water roll-off from roof, and a better cargo cover headrest clip system. It also should have a head rests that tilt forward to actually make contact with your head. Have the automatic entry light stay on a bit longer.
