2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara Problems
There are many reports of low beam head light bulbs burning out prematurely. As of this writing Suzuki has not released a service bulletin addressing this issue. Using only high quality replacement bulbs, and extra care not to touch the bulb surface when handling the new bulb can help extend the life of the replacement bulbs.
The AC condenser fan motor may fail. If this occurs the air conditioning will stop blowing cold air.
The timing chain cover gasket and timing chain tensioner may fail, causing an oil leak or excessive noise. Because removing the timing chain is labor intensive, this can be an expensive repair.

Happens every 2 to 3 days. Engine coughs and sputters. Stops. In 5 min.starts and runs fine again.
There is no cold air blowing and a/c fan not working.
Have been to three places, and no one knew how to remove the old bulbs. My manual only shows an arrow with a small twist and pull....maybe if you have bionic fingers. I have been warned by a deputy sherrif to have them replaced...help!

2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara Reviews
I love my Grand Vitara....other than regular normal maintenance, this has been the best car I have ever had.... Yes, the remote control door locks stopped working after 5 years....and the CD stopped working....but I have 185k miles and still going strong...
I own a 2001 Grand Vitara XL-7. Overall, I am very pleased with it. I have only replaced the air conditioning compressor and a sensor. However, the interior light comes on without opening the doors. What could be causing this? The exhaust rattles when I first start the car but stops after the car is warmed up. What's causing that? Anyone know?
