    I have a 2001 Grand Vitara V6 which has done 44,000 miles and is a bit of a "rock and roller" on the road. I am not sure if this is normal as I have had the vehicle a few months.
    I would be interested to know if anyone has done any suspension mods to their GV in order to make it more stable and handle better on road.

  • Has anyone had problems with the diesel combustion system needing to be replaced at the first and second service of 7,000km and 15,000km (5,000 and 10,000 miles)

    I appear to be having the liquid in this sytem contaminated by a blue/green liquid which in turn corrodes the insides of the system.

    I have a 2001 grand vitara that I bought new. The transmission and the AC unit had to be replaced around 30,000 miles. I had to fight with Suzuki to get them to cover the cost as the warranty had just expired (0f course). :mad:

    I have a 2001 suzuki grand vitara and last dec i also rear ended a mini van going about 40 mph. My airbag did not deploy either but the front of my car was badly damaged. The transmission and AC were destroyed and the engine moved forward '3 inches' and it took nearly 2 months to get my car back from the body shop bc 'suzuki parts are hard to get'. BTW, while my car had to be towed, the mini van drove away with minimal damage. :sick:
  • I just bought a barely used 2002 Vitara from Saturn and I've been driving it around and I tried to put on the cruise control, but it doesn't seem to work [either that or I just don't know how to do it]. So how do you do it? Thank you so much! :o)

    i own a 1995 suzuki vitara. there's a new "noise" I noticed under the hood. it seems to come from somewhere on the left side (facing the engine, and the exhaust pipe on the right). probably the box where the air intake meets the manifols. it's like a "whirr" of a small motor. thanks for any advise/comment
  • Hi, does anyone know if it is possible to change the valve stem oil seals on a V-6 Grand Vitara (1999) without removing the heads?

  • We just picked up a 'new to us' vitara and I have been unable to figure out how to set the clock - your information on how to set the clock is much appreciated!!
  • I recently bought a 2001 vitara jx complete with a soft top. I have since picked up a hard top that comes with a rear defroster on the rear window. The wiring harness from the hard top seems like it should connect in the rear corner of the passenger side but there is no matching harness on the car. Does anyone have any experience connecting up to this harness and is it easy to locate under the trim??

    Thanks!
