My worst purchase ever

2008 Suzuki XL7 Premium 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


When I purchased this vehicle, I was not looking for an SUV. Due to the fact that there was a $5000 rebate, and I was promised by the dealership that "they" would furnish free tires for life as long as I owned the vehicle. Within the first two weeks of owning the car, the dealership closed, so all promises were off. At 55,000 miles, every light on the dash came on. The timing chain and a wheel barren had to be replaced. The lights continued to come on, they replaced a motor mount. There is an annoying constant noise in the steering, warranty does not cover this, and the front driver's side fender comes loose every time the car is driven. American Suzuki is not willing to buy the junk back.

do not buy 2008 Suzuki XL7 at 55,000 miles i had to replace the radiator on this SUV i had no warning just fluid all over the ground,the only explanation that the service guy could give for replacing a radiator at 55,000 miles is that these things happen,and after reading the other reviews i will be treading it in today ,and letting as many people i can talk to do not buy this Suv I also have the noise with the power steering i guess that will be next.no wonder they stoped making this model
