Great value for a SUV
Cons: AcellerationVery comfortable with room for a large family and acceptable mileage: 25MPG highway.
Pros: BEING CHEATED BY SUZUKI MOTORS

Pros: 32rd row of seats (cramped but good for kids in a pinch)
Cons: No standard alarm system
Advice: It's a buyThis is my third Suzuki. The others ('87 Samurai, '97 Sidekick) were very reliable. My '02 XL-7 is the best of the bunch and I have operated it trouble free for the past 3 years.
Pros: nice looking vehicle
Cons: easy to tip over
Advice: not to buy onemy son was driving this vehicle up a hill going into walmart in clearfield, pa roads were damp, back end started fish tailing & my son tried to straighten it out, and it went into other lane spun around facing down the entrance and flip over on its side into a ditch. too easy to tip & will not own another suzuki xl-7. my son was not hurt but could have been deadly. so far there is 8,000.00 worth of damage.
Pros: 3rd row seating that folds down, too.
Cons: My AC compressor went out one month before the 3 year, bumper-to-bumper warranty expired. Keyless remotes have been replaced twice under warranty, too.
Advice: Great drive, good features, lots of room for kids and storage-a great buy all around.I've had this SUV for over 2 1/2 years and still love it! It drives great. It's the perfect size for family, animals, or anything you want to haul around. My model, the V6 Touring package with 4x4, was a great deal at 18,000 with only 3,000 miles on it used. I shopped online until I found exactly what I was looking for and this was it!
Pros: heated side mirrors
Cons: the x l 7
Advice: dont buy it. Suzuki does not stand behind thier product, leaving you to deal with all its imperfections.Squeeky front end. Shifted belt in tire made the ride bumpy as a gravel road with potholes. My knees were in my chest driving. Four wheel drive didnt shift in easily.
Pros: Ride,price,sound systems and leather
Advice: Hard to beat the priceJust bougth one 2004. You will love the price. Third row seat is great if you have kids otherwise opt out and save your money. A lots of suv for the money. Get leather seated EXIII. Sound system is great with sub woofer and 6cds changer built in.
