regret

by regret from Indiana on Wed Jan 27 2010

I just dont care for it. Espeially the loud cabin. It has a lot of road noise. I cant stand the layout of all the buttons. Way to many blind spots.

Worst car I've ever owned.

by Totally Disgusted from Sumter,SC on Sat Apr 05 2008

The interior is cheap. The car is overpriced. Gas milage is terrible for a midsize SUV. The turn ratio is extremely limited. I wish I had thought about this more before making a commitment. I am trying to get rid of the vehicle, and I am have an extremely hard time because the depreciation is awful.

Thank you for this website!!!

by Loopy from Abingdon on Tue May 01 2018

I was going to trade my Nissan truck for one and the guy I was trading with told me what an awesome car it was. I was reading the reviews on here and I found a review he wrote himself. He said he had replaced the timing belt 3 times and complained about all kinds of problems but he told me it was a wonderful family vehicle. I have 2 sons and I’m a widow and I know absolutely nothing about cars! So thank you God for giving me enough sense to research and paying attention to detail. My truck is awesome just too small. Thanks again!!!!

Our Take on the 2008 Suzuki XL7


I have a collection of clothing items that I purchased for fabulously small prices. Who doesn't love a bargain? Of course, it's only a bargain if the thing you shelled out even a modest amount of cash for is something you actually want. My collection, as it turns out, is a testament to bad deals. They're things I bought because they were on sale, not because they fit nicely or went with anything else in my closet, meaning that $50 top that I got for $9.99 was no bargain after all. As one of the lowest-priced midsize SUVs on the market, Suzuki's XL7 will fit perfectly into my collection.

The XL7 looks great. The sporty front grille promises a fun ride, while the sleek lines of the body hint at luxuries... Read More
