2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0 petrol from Italy
Air conditioning fault. Have had to replace twice. Total cost 2000 euros!
Engine oil consumption of 1L every 6.000 km.
Very expensive running cost. Average fuel consumption is 12l/100km!
Performance is terrible. I guess the reason is that the 2.0L petrol engine is underpowered for an automatic transmission. Should be at least 2.4L or more... RPM are always 3.000 or more. Engine oil consumption of 1L every 6.000 km.
My previous Kia Sportage, 2.0L diesel with automatic transmission (latest model made in Korea for EU) lasted almost 300k km and never saw the car shop!
First and last experience with Suzuki, sorry...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
