    2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara - XSport (A5) 4x2

    Pros: No keys! Lighted display is beautiful! Awesome sound system.

    Cons: Need air vents in back.

    Advice: Great buy!!

    Have had several SUVs and this has been the best. It gives better milage(smaller engine of course). Love that you don't need keys on hand. Handles well. I think I got an awesome deal for the price. Best, you can't beat the warranty(no more extended warranty). Test drive it, you'll love it.

    Pros: Great looks, more power, better ride like a car even though 4wd SUV With all the features and loaded

    Cons: Rear axel comes with solid drum no disk brakes. Rear seats not enough legroom and the ride is little bumpy.

    Advice: Rear axel comes with solid drum no disk brakes. Rear seats not enough legroom and the ride is little bumpy.

    Awesome interior, great price, nice V6/4WD combo, good looks, best warranty! I just got the new Grand Vitara Luxury edition on 9/25/06. I am very impressed with the handling and performance of the '06 Vitara. Amenities inside are amazing! I got mine with all the toys! Leather, sunroof, 17in wheels Keyless entry' 'Handling, appearance, quality interior' Grand Vitara luxury interior with all great standard stuff It had V6, 4WD, real truck/tank-like built & frame, keyless entry (wife loves), and nice looks. Smooth quiet ride and has neat power thrust button for automatics (puts 'sport' back in SUV). Compact body is important if you live in upstate NY. As I street park in a big city like Albany, The off-road capabilities useful for unplowed streets and deep potholes (city approved). There is no other compact SUV with same off-road, V6, 4WD, comfort and style for the price. This vehicle is in a unique class with no competitors for the price, true off-road, V6, and 4WD. I fell in love with driving again. I am 5'11'' and thought I might find its width tight, yet more I drive it, more I like it. It is really is a great ride. My wife whips around in this car, so that tells you a lot about its safe built-like a tank feel and ride, since she never did that with 4-cylinders

    2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara - Base (M5) 4x2

    Pros: Steering wheel controls, Full Size Spare, 4wd,

    Cons: No Fog lights on base model, I guess i get what I pay for but i am very happy with it anyway

    Advice: Buy the car. The price is well worth the product, just the warranty makes it worth it

    Oil smell at first i wasn't told about it but it doesn't bother me, my girlfriend can't even smell it. The car is nice for the price unlike everyone else I got no bells or whistles. I can't complain the car is a nice car and i got it for a great price. The ability for me to own a car like this at my age says alot about the company. I am 20 years old the dealership (Suzuki of Vernon, CT) worked around my budget, found me the cheapest insurace, and bent over backwords to make it work for me. The complaints on gas mileage I don't understand. I am carefull with gas prices beging high not to step on it and I average 23 mpg around town.

    2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara - Luxury (A5) 4x2

    Pros: Interior Feel- seats

    Cons: I got every option but could not get power seats

    Advice: Buy it

    This is a great vehicle for the money. And yes there was a burning oil smell the first 3 months I had it, but the smell eventually went away as the dealer said it would. I have 16,000 miles on it already (I drive it a lot!) and the only complaint I have is the back breaks needed to be adjusted and cleaned after making a loud squeaking sound ($60 bill) Otherwise, this is a great vehicle and I highly recommend it.
