This is my second vitara, I had a '92 (k) plate 3dr soft top before this for a year which i loved to bits but couldn't fit all my work gear in so it had to go. I bought a 5dr 16v instead as couldn't stand the thought of getting a crappy boring escort or something similar (no offence to any escort owners) This is alot better than my prvious alround, alot quieter on the road but having 10" wide wheels so not too good for off road (Better than expected though)
The ride is good, space is good,... (read more)

Live in South Africa I have a 1.6 16v JLX 5 door with 280 000km on the clock 1994 model and she is in mint condition, and 4x4 used often, soft sand and mud driving.
We use the car every day still, and still a pleasure to drive, in traffic or on highway, still think it was money well spent.
Low on maintenace and ok feul consumption average 10.5 km/pl highway, 9km/pl in town and 6.2km/pl in 4x4
Not bad for a 4x4.

Keep the vehicle serviced. Change oil and filter every 6000m and more importantly change the HT leads every 9000 miles. (read more)

My Suzuki Vitara 1.6 LWB JLX 5 door is a 1995 model so it is old but it looks a lot nicer than the new Grand Vitaras in my opinion. It looks more rugged and more like a proper off-roader, which it is. It is quite fast on the road and doesn't drink petrol compared to other 4X4's. The front seats are comfortable and roomy. The small size means it is easy to maneuver around towns, down country lanes and into tight parking spots. It will hardly ever brake down as the engine is simple and... (read more)

This is an all round good, reliable car. I drive my 1.6 16v 3dr grand vitara in Ethiopia. It is perfect! I can still burn the taxis off at the traffic lights, and drive offroad when the traffic is bad. I have not had one thing go wrong yet. On the motorways i can easly cruise at 140kph without the engine getting noisy. The 1.6 engine roars, I still cant get over the fantastic sound it makes. When I looked into the car I was imagining a small, slow and uncomfortable 4x4. But no, each rear... (read more)

Overall the Suzuki Vitara is an excellent car, it makes some newer cars seem unreliable. Nothing major has ever gone wrong with this car (I knew the previous owner who has had it since new) just general servicing that has been carried out. A fun 4x4 and I would reccomend this vehicle to anyone. This car regularly tows trailers and although breathless on long hills is a real work horse. Fuel economy not too bad at about 25mpg.

We have a 1992 JLX which has done 50k miles, bought from a main agent. The fuel tank rusted through and had to be replaced. The wheel arches are rusting badly, the rubber surround on the windscreen is pulling away from the body. The electric window switches failed. The central door locking switches failed. The multi purpose light/horn/indicator switch has failed. The tailgate handle broke. We have experienced the battery completely discharge for no apparant reason on four occasions( no we...

I have always thought of Vitaras as a little 'hairdressery' and of 4x4s in general as unnecessary on British roads until I saw a 2000 model Vitara 4u2 in a local car dealers. For some reason I had to have a look at this black and silver spotless example. I asked for a test drive, still dont know why, and was very pleasantly suprised by this car, excellent driving position and it came with both hardtop and soft tops. I purchased the car for £6500, 14k on the clock and truly unmarked, I have... (read more)

I bought this 94 suzuki escudo 9 months ago and it has been running perfectly. As it is a five door it is extremely practical and doesn't cost the earth to run. I can't recommend this jeep enough! (read more)

Bought this 1997 Suzuki Vitara Christmas 2001 at well below book price as a very high miler. It had 115,000 on the clock with full service history. Took it for MoT test (UK stringent annual vehicle test) expecting to have to carry out work, and to my amazement it passed straight away. Have contacted last owner and this car is on the original clutch and exhaust system would you believe! - and still, at 118k runs quite faultlessly. To switch to 4x4 you have to turn front hub locks manually... (read more)
