  • "ALL the spare tire tools are under the drivers seat NOT under the middle row.. "

    Ahem, I pointed out that they changed that for 2003^...

    "Tell me HOW the plastic duct makes it from the front to the second row???? On the floor??? Think about it.. It can't.."

    Ok, so they must have changed it for 02. And of course I mean the floor, where else - the seatbelt opening??? Just because your model year has something one way, doesn't mean every other model year has it exactly the same. That's why I stated what I knew of the 01 and 03 XL7. Contradicting what I say because you have an 02 doesn't help. It would be like me saying "How is the climate controls not automatic??" to you.....and now it rests
  • there is a subwoofer under the drivers seat of my 2003 model and the tools and jack are under the 2nd row, right side and no vents underneath the 2nd row seats

    let me say this ONE MORE TIME> THERE ARE NO HEATING DUCTS ON 01'S UNDER THE SECOND ROW. YOU ARE WRONG. NO YEAR HAS THE DUCTS UNDER THE SECOND OR THIRD ROW AT ALL!!! THE HEAT DUCTS STOP UNDER THE FRONT BUCKETS.. EVERYONE CHECK UNDER THEIR XL7'S AND REPORT BACK HERE.. PLEASE CAUSE HE DON'T BELIEVE ME.
    :)
    some people are THICK.

    Happy New Year, All!

    Any body here install an after market DVD player/Screen in there XL 7. I am debating the idea if it would work. Due to the problem of the Moon roof going into the body. The dealer says they can place something in there for it to work. But I am still wondering about the weight of the system pulling down on the head liner. I think it would only be like 2 to 4lbs it is really light (Screen) the actual player is going under the second row seats. Just wondering if there are any others out there, whom may have done this. I would believe that here in the near future they all will come with the option, from the dealer. It is such a wonder on trips.
  • I was actually considering the aftermarket DVD too....I put it on the back burner for now though because the wife wants an alarm with auto ignition. I checked at Suzuki and theirs is $499, I was actually looking into getting an alarm on EBAY and having it installed. Has anyone done either???

    OH yeah, on the rear blower. I didn't realize it was only an A/C unit. I guess rctennis3811 was wrong when he said "...everyone knows that..."

    We got a 7" mobile entertainment system from our dealer when we purchased the car. Apparently, each dealer has different kinds of TVs to install. Ours is a 7" MyronDavis overhead screen with a Pyle View DVD player under the front passenger seat. Since the Clarion stereo doesn't have inputs for TVs, they installed something that gives out the sound through radio wavelengths. To listen throughout the whole car we have to put it on 88.7FM. Weird, but it works. Came with two wireless headphones too! Hopefully, Suzuki makes their own DVD entertainment systems available as an option soon! :)

    -Ok, I meant the top blower was A/C the bottom was heat. Clear??

    Thanks for the info. If anybody else has any more information on DVD systems please let me know.

    rbeafor, I am as well thinking about getting keyless remote start for mine. My father just had it but on my moms truck, it cost him $249, they told him there that even if he trades in the car they will for free take it out and place it in the new car, along with a nation wide warranty. That might be something to look for. I know i am checking all the dealers in my local area.

    Yea, if the a/c is not turned on the top vents only blow what ever temperature air is inside of the truck. It would be nice to have heat but I think not necessary.

    Anyone have a clue who sells Suzuki's extended warranty on the XL-7 at the best price? I was surprised when I ran a search on this site that nothing came up -- and I did a total site search as well. When I ran a search on my other vehicle, a Honda Odyssey, I had full listings of dealerships, names, phone numbers, prices, etc. It was a real help. Since this would be my first Suzuki, I really would like the warranty.

    Also, I live in the Wash. D.C. area and I wonder if $21,600 plus taxes, title, license is a decent price on a 2004 XL-7 LX III? That's the best offer to date.

    Thank you for any help

    When I purchased my 2000 Honda Accord, I used an online extended warranty company as a bargaining tool. When the business manager of the dealership quoted a price, I turned them down informing them I could get a better deal through the internet. The dealership agreed to give me the warranty for the internet price which was hundreds less than what was previously quoted. The link for an online warranty company is located on the Edmunds.com's home page (warrantybynet.com) I found the internet's price is the cheapest to be found yet the coverage is just as good.

    prolly because the XL7 already has a 7/100k warranty on it already. No need for an extended one..

    Has anyone gotten their XL7 to the dealer lately because of the 2 recalls?? We got the first recall fixed two weeks ago and another recall came to us by mail on Friday. Yeesh! :)

    My XL-7 (2002 Touring) is going in on January 26th for the accelerator cable/cap recall. I've been told by the dealer that it takes an approximately an hour to do the work. Assuming that the cable is one of the recalls you've received, what is the second one?
  • bobp11bobp11 Posts: 24
    The first one I received is for a protective plate to shield some wiring from the engine. The second is for the cap on the accelerator cable. I took my 03 to the dealer for the first, left it there, and only to find out later in the day they did not have the part to fix it. The cap is easily visible on the fire wall and supposedly deteriorates and frays the cable. Mine looks perfectly fine. I guess eventually I will get around to these fixes, but for now, they don't seem that pressing. These things are a pain, but I suppose necessary.
  • parideparide Posts: 52
    The firewall cap also looks fine on my XL-7. I don't see any of the cracking the recall notice mentions. But, I'll get it changed now, before problems start.
  • I didn't even realize that was a DIFFERENT recall. I had the first one done 2 weeks ago, now I guess I gotta go back....

    GREAT

    Hey lkrk11, was that $249 the suzuki offerred remote start???
