2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Review
I purchased the Grand Vitara as an up-grade for the Jeep Cherokee 4x4. It was a fine vehicle, satisfied all my needs and had all the power I could ever expect from a modern V-6 engine. Fuel mileage was as one might expect when pulling trailer loaded with 3500 lbs of hay in rolls.

Value Ranked 1988 Jeep Cherokee worse.
"Later model, less miles used, more comfortable as a newer vehicle should be, these are the reasons to own this vehicle, great as a towing vehicle and dog hauler and reliable as an off-roader for hunting and fishing."
Would Buy Ranked 1988 Jeep Cherokee better.
"For someone who lives my lifestyle, a better vehicle has never been made. Replacement parts are available, I still do my own mechanical maintenance at 73 yrs. old and so far its anyones guess which one of us will out last the other."

2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Limited 4WDReview

Ok — Nice SUV for hauling cargo and off roading. Not really good for every day driving. I often have sensor problems which is not a big issue for me. Tha'ts the only* problem i had with it. It's 4WD is very useful in winter! *ONLY PROBLEM SO FAR*

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: 4x4 Off Roading

Cons: Every day driving

2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX 4WDReview

Modest And Utilitarian — Lasted a long time and need a 4x4 with good mileage because I had a mountain between me and work. Little jerky on the acceleration and not all that powerful but you save in gas. In the same situation I would buy again. Back seat foot area is small but when you put the seats down you have a ton of room. I have even blown up a full size air mattress while camping and slept inside with my wife. I am also 6'3" 270lbs and this car fits fine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: economy headroom and legroom

Cons: no acceleration or power

Attractive To Look At. Decent Power, Great In Snow/ice By machoman
