2007 Suzuki XL7 Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/Platinum Touring Package (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Solid comfortable ride city and highway. City gas mileage could be better. We average about 14 but that's at 25 to 35 mph and a lot of traffic lights. Drove from Louisville to Miami fully loaded and got around 23 to 24 at 75 to 80 mph. You can haul a lot of stuff in it. Small back window creates an adventure at times backing up. Vehicle is very peppy and the blizzard we had last winter did not phase the all wheel drive. The only problem so far was a brake light went out but the dealer replaced at no charge


Best Features

XM radio


Worst Features

Make a backing up system standard on it.

Review

Just after 1000 miles the gear shifter wouldn't shift into drive.. it would pop out and shift into neutral. RCA Jack broke not even 200 miles later.. then the Radio went at 4000 miles it played when it wanted too. Then at 5000 miles the entertainment center went.. at 5500 the blinkers went. at 25,000 miles my leather is TERRIBLE. not good quality. Rarely have people in the car and it's ripped apart. WARNING


Best Features

Auto Dimming Light.... that's about it


Worst Features

Start from scratch make a better car

Review

I have owned Chevrolet, Ford, Mazda products liked all of them. After purchaing the Suzuki XL-7, I have decided this vehicle overall is the best vehicle. The XL-7 performance is oustanding, ride outstatnding, handling outstanding, safety outstanding,value far better than most products on the market. I have driven this vehicle in all types of climates and terrain it has performed above and beyond. The fuel economy 20 city/26 road needs inprovement.The 7year/100,000 warranty is great, tires batteries for life wonderful.

Review

We purchased our XL7 after reading and researching all the midsize SUV's. The honeymoon was over about 3,000 miles into it. We have had to take it back to the dealership 3 or 4 times because the "motor mount" kept causing problems with the ignition and thumping and knocking noises from the bottom. We also had trouble with a clicking sound in the odometer area. They told us at the dealership that it would resolve itself...not. Love the look of the car and would be 100% satisfied if we hadn't had to keep going back for repairs (the same thing each time) Seems like Suzuki didn't work out all the kinks on the 2007 XL7. We probably won't buy another, but what do you do? We'll keep it for now.


Best Features

Seat warmers, leather, it has a luxury feel for sure. Looks a lot like the Mercedes SUV.


Worst Features

Just get it right. Nobody wants to go back to the dealership 4 times in 6 months...yuck!

Review

I love the steering response but haven't enjoyed the lack of steering range. Takes a lot of room to turn, love the seat warmers, do not like the lack of visibility and do not like the location of the window buttons. But overall I feel really good in the vehicle, feel safe, feel comfortable. Was torn between the Berry and Gold, got the gold and think I would have liked the Berry better now.


Best Features

Reaction of steering, 7 passenger, seat warmers.


Worst Features

Make turning range sharper, put window buttons on the adjacent doors, include the luggage carrier bars with the damn car... what a surprise that I couldn't use the rack, no bars included.
