I love my Grand Vitara. I bought it used 5 years ago and have only had to replace the starter. It stood up great to a big pick-up truck that rearended and sideswiped me. The tires never left the highway, I never lost control. The auto body guy was very impressed and said it's built like a little tank. It's easy to get in and out and I could go on. They are great vehicles.

Good all around bad road performance

I bought a used 2001 Gran Vatara in 2005 and had it shipped to Nicaragua where I have driven it for the past 45,000 miles. I live at the ocean and to get here one has to take bad roads frequently crossing rivers filled with mud and water. I wanted a car that was a sticky on slippery surfaces, a good performer on the horrible scrabble roads yet was a smooth highway ride. I wanted a mini-SUV that did not draw attention, was easy to manuveur in crazy city traffic, and dart in and out of truck traffic on the Pan American. It does all this well.

For my first suv, I have bought a suzuki grand vitara which looked interessting to me. This suv may look small from the outside, but inside is pretty roomy for the legs, except for the back seats which are comfortable but tight. The "real" 4 wheel drive system is excellent even in the toughest situations, which I have driven in with my suzuki with no problem. The reliability is fair since I had many problems with mine. The confort isnt the best in its category since the vehicule is intended for offroad use. The value for the money is the best I have seen in this category with almost no options at all. This suv also handles very well and could turn on a penny. Apart from all these negative comments I have had with my Suzuki, this vehicule has alot of potential, and for offroad fans who also spend time in urban cities, yes this is the car for you.

Just got my hands on one. Glad I did! This unbelievable little known model of a vehicle in my biased opinion (as I barely recently purcha$ed it) is to a lover of all forms of driving a car that can and will get you and your passengers there. The rest isnt your vehicles problem let alone SUZUKI's. I'm sure my driving experience will be something and I cannot express how AWSOME it will be! Its like past midnight so gotta get some sleep so like goodnight everybody!
