I Am Glad I Bought It, I Will Be Shopping For A New One When This One Grows Old. — I own a 2008 Suzuki XL7, it is a very nice SUV-Crossover. It comes in handy when you have a family of 5 and not so much money to spend on gas. My mom owns a 2004 Cadillac DeVille and I have to say... it's a bit nicer than her car. Heated leather seats for Winter and a nice big sunroof for Summer.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Acceleration/Engine

Cons: 3rd row seat is a bit small

2008 Xl7 — Like: good engine power, outstanding cargo capacity, reasonably quiet interior, drives very well (feels kinda "heavy", wind doesn't blow it around much), nice amenities, comfortable, AWD, ESC, traction control, monitorable tire pressure, tows 3500lbs, lots of Suzuki accessories, high liftgate, lots of power jacks. Dislike: cheapish-seeming interior (trim-level and accessory improvable), SUV-ish MPG, rear-visibility limited (rear camera helps). In sum: Very nice car/SUV.

Pros: Good engine, comfortable, drives well, quiet interior, lots of cargo/people space, AWD.

Cons: Cheapish interior (improvable), MPG is SUV-ish, definitely not a sports car.

Best Suv Ever Owned — Love the gas mileage, much better than my kia! Ride quality is Lincoln like and the third row seat is handy, the engine power is good and sips gas, 24 MPG for this size SUV is awesome, leather seats are comfy and the steering wheel controls are very handy to have.

Pros: Gas Mileage, Ride

Cons: Ground clearance

Good Car For The Money — The wheel alignment on rear wheels was not right, out of the factory. I felt comfortable with the car during the test drive, I had just driven a 2009 Sorrento, and it seemed way better than the Sorreto. The XL7 has been flawless in snow storms, and DEEP snow. The fuel mileage averages 20mpg in summer, and 17.5 mpg in winter. Suzuki has a great website to get low cost repair info, at :https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Default.aspx I use Mobil One Extended Performance engine oil for a long lasting engine.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Smooth operating, good all around car for the money.

Cons: Visibility not great for backing up, have to use the mirrors more.

2008 Suzuki XL-7 Base AWD Review
GuruBV1HH says:
I like my car but after researching all night I realized tht they have a lot of issues with stability traction control, awd, n power steering. When these service lights come on it disable traction control and awd which is so dangerous in bad weather. I read so many complaints but I dont think they are getting reported properly or this vehicle would have to be recalled. Ive read about atleast 10 wrecks bc of these same problems. the 08 has 154 complaints just for this specific issue when in all the years making them there is only 54 for the other years.
