We got a lemon by Lovebug - Quebec on 01/18/2010. Trim: 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury 2.4L RWD, Owned 1 year.
Useful?
Pros: I love the look, the comfort, control
Cons: Quality - nothing but problems. Poor customer Service from dealership right to Suzuki Canada
Overall review: We bought our truck in April 2009. We were absolutely LOVING the truck until the cold weather hit and we started turning on the heat. Late November motor started overheating. They replaced the thermostate. Early December motor started overheating again, and there was no heat in the vehicle. They replaced the thermostate again, but it was still overheating. They opened up the motor and the head was cracked! They've had our vehicle since Dec 14th, waiting for parts to arrive from Japan. Asside from the mechanical/electrical problems, my biggest complaint is about their customer service. They've never once contacted us to give us an update. It's always us calling them. We usually get voice-mail, and we have to leave a few messages before they reply. They've never appologized for the inconvenience of not having our truck for over a month, and they've never appologized for the poor service from their customer service team.

The 2009 Grand Vitara is Grander! by Zukfan from Delaware on 06/27/2009. Trim: 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara XSport 3.2L 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Useful?
Pros: New 3.2L V6 gives an incredible step forward in performance! Available Four Mode 4wd system outperforms the competition (no other compact SUV offers a low-range transfer case). New features like Hill Descent and Hill Hold make this already capable vehicle even more so! Retuned suspension offers a smoother on-road ride for long trips! Clean, userfriendly dash and instrument panel. Great warranty that is fully transferable if you deside to get rid of it, but I doubt you'd want to.
Cons: Could use a little more ground clearance and a locking rear differential would be nice, but these are not a necessity.
Overall review: The 2009 interation of the Grand Vitara leaps this vehicle from the middle of the compact SUV segment to the front. The smoother, more powerful V6 changes this SUV completely, as does the addition of rear disc brakes and Hill Descent/Hill Hold controls. If you're looking for a SUV to take you to your favorite camping/fishing spot and need an off-road capable vehicle that has great on-road manners, this is your rig! Suzuki makes intelligent, reliable, and value packed vehicles, give them a try, you won't be dissapointed!

The intelligent buy by Warbabe from San Juan on 03/16/2009. Trim: 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury 2.4L RWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Useful?
Pros: Well this is the third Vitara i have, i like the price first, space, the seats are really comfy, nice radio, the suv is way more stable than the last model(i had a 2002 model),love the sunroof.
Cons: Gas mileage is not what is advertise is way less, tire should be bigger. the bad thing about suzuki is the resail value.
Overall review: For me its a great improve since last model and i love to drive my suv and for the price its worth considering, i know there other companies out there but suzuki is a strong competidor.
