4x4 will climb a tree

by from Given on February 10, 2017

These things are a stout little ride. They are nimble on the highwsy but are quite capable off road.

I brought this fantastic car 2nd hand, and have owned it for 3 years and absolutely love it! It is very comfortable, easy to drive, plenty of room with 2 small children with baby seats in the back, I can just fit another person in the 3rd seat in the rear. So reliable. I wanted this car as I have had many un-reliable cars previously, and this one just keeps going. I look after my car, which I think helps keep it going strong, and it has absolutely no signs of slowing down. I have noticed I have gone through a few sets of headlight bulbs, but it is just such as easy fix as my local Repco store fits them for me for FREE!!! As a last resort I was able to tow our small camper trailer, and it was a breeze on the highway. I love how it is higher than sedans, helps my back with putting children in and out of the car everyday. I also courier around my nana on her shopping day, and it isn't too much effort for her as it is a little higher. I also love that I can drive on the beach, that just tops the car off, as our family is a 4wd family, this was a superb choice for our 2nd car. I would definately reccommend this wonderful make of vehicle. After my aunty seen how versitile this vehicle is, she has just brought the new model and is loving it. I have 220K on the clock, and will have this car for a long time to come! I love Suzuki!

Most reliable car I've ever had!

I must say that I am more surprised that anyone to say this is a great car. I bought it brand new in 2007 (Luxury Edition) and it still is great in 2016. Its the longest i've ever kept a car and the first that is over 100K (122K to be exact). Sure it could use a bit more power, but it fools you with its RPM/Exhaust so its ok, I didnt by it to race. No mechanical issues and everything still works. Even the paint still looks brand new. I take care of it and switched to semi synthetic oil after 50K and to full synthetic at 90K. i've also gone to 89 octane (plus). I've gone thru 3 sets of tires and the only annoying thing is the headlights seem to burnt out faster than usual. i think I fixed that by re tightening the socket a bit. Plus I've gotten used to the rear door opening, makes for plenty of space. I would totally recommend this car and just too bad they don't make them anymore. It running so well is the only thing keeping me from buying a new car

I love this car. It looks nice and is reliable. The ride is rougher than others but it's not too bad. I average about 23-25mpg on the highway, but it depends on how I drive it. The only complaint I have is about the headlight bulbs. They seem to burn out fast. I still see older grand vitara's on the highway, and i hope to get 250K out of if.

Worst new car I've owned

by from Rochester, NY on October 24, 2013

Tires wore out in less than 20k miles, front brake caliper and rotors failed at 10k miles, tire pressure module defective since day one, anti lock module failed at under 20k, rear suspension sounded like a solid axle with no springs or shocks when hitting bump. Poor layout for interior storage in rear, only about half the useful space of my 2001 Forester. Dishonest dealer and no help from Suzuki. Bought new for warrantee, day to find fault, no parts in inventory, return week later, sometimes fixed, sometimes not, then start process over. V 6 felt weaker and rougher than 4 cylinder Forester, manual transmission shifting poor feel for front engine rear drive vehicle, vaguer that cable front wheel drive transmissions.

Surefooted Vehicle

This car is the most sure-footed vehicle. Driving 50K miles on winter mountain roads I always felt safe and in control. I could have used a little more passing power near the summit but overall not bad performance. The seats became a little uncomfortably stiff after 600 miles in a day but unnoticeable in normal driving and shorter road trips. Amazing amount of space to haul your stuff when the back seats are folded down too. Had to give it up after 2 years due to job difficulties but am considering getting another one now. Great value for the money. A safe and reliable car.

I also have a 2006 GV and have always thought it was a good value compared to other SUVs. Strong engine, reliable, drives well, still fairly rugged, good 4wd system. I like the Suzuki gives all the options as standard. I bought this machine for its engine and 4wd system and have not been disappointed.
