2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara Review Ratings
2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4 Dr EX 4WD SUV Review
Off road capabilities, build quality
low gas mileage, mediocre performance for a v6
Very Satisfied And Happy With My Purchace But Not Floored In Any Way. — Exactly like described, adequate exceleration but not something you would expect from a v6 however great off road. Surprisingly, I found it easier to paralell park than my 2000 vw golf! Had problems with the sunroof not opening every time moves to vent but doesn't always want to open fully. Gas mileage isnt that great but the tank is huge for a suv of that size. I have the automatic and i found it not very fun to drive as other cars I have had in the past maybe the 5 speed manual would pep it up a bit.
Primary Use: Family transportation
