Excellent Mini SUV by John from Houston on 01/27/2001. Trim: 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLS, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Very nice ride. At first I thought the rear mounted spare tire might be a problem for me visually, couldn't have been more wrong. I'm having fun driving my 'zuki GV.
Cons: Not much room for back seat passengers.
Overall review: Excellent ride for under $25,000. Personally I think it's a better ride that some SUVs costing thousands more. I would recommend this vehicle for anyone looking for a good buy on an mini-SUV.

Tough as you need!! by got2bwarm from Maryland on 02/04/2013. Trim: 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I've owned this tough little son of gun since it was born... like others have noted...Low 4 x 4...it's a mountain goat...goes anywhere you put it up to...it's now 12 years old and hanging tough at 140K. Oh and it's great in snow and dry deep sand...perfect for Assaeteque Island , MD!
Cons: I 've replaced all the major air conditioning components which were not cheap and it still does not work. Wish the back window would roll down...
Overall review: Wound buy again.

A REAL SUV by Jim in Oregon on 03/31/2001. Trim: 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX+, Owned 1 year.
Pros: It is FUN to drive! I have the 5 spd and it has a very sporty feel. It rides up high and is a real truck. It has a nice firm ride and a real jewel of an engine. The body and engine seem so tight and it just sounds strong and capable.
Cons: Ok, the floor heater outlets could put out more heat, the door arm rests could have some padding vs. just cloth covered plastic. Also the sun visors should have the extenders vs. vanity mirros. Not much to really complain about.
Overall review: This is the ONLY real small SUV that has true off road capability. It is a real truck and not a car based SUV. I've owned two Honda vehicles, and the quality and engineering of the Suzuki is very similar to the Hondas, in my opinion. As such it is a great value...and did I say fun to drive?
