What to expect from a Grand Vitara XL7
I bought an XL7 5 Door new in Oct 2005 (old model). Now at 70k miles I'm delighted with it in all respects - only fault is the CD player has a jammed disc, and 4x alloys pitted. Both issues replaced by Suzuki under extended warranty in year 4.

Nothing wrong now and it suits my needs but what can I expect to go wrong, what can I do to prevent that and if I did sell what you would recommend for a very tall country chap who needs 4WD?

Quite a rare car. Timing belt would be a worry if it has one. Honda CR-V is the most comfortable SUV.

Seven seats and a decent V6 petrol engine. Good off-road and easy to manoeuvre in town.
