2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara Problems

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The AC condenser fan motor may fail. If this occurs the air conditioning will stop blowing cold air.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The engine may be difficult to start in cold weather or at high altitude. Our technicians tell us there is a powertrain control module (PCM) software up grade which may help with these issues.

2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara Reviews

Dear all,
I just bought a Grand Vitara, called in Mexico Tracker by General Motors.
Main concern that I have is about lights:
1. The rear ones do not works (brake and reverse works properly) but normal rear light do not.
2. Fog lamps do not work, and
3. All backlight from IPCluster, HVAC and automatic transmission indicator of speed are not illuminated when front lamps are turned to on.
What can I do? ...I already checked fuses and looks OK ... thanks!

Where do you find a Clock Spring for 2005 Grand Vitara? These cars never break down. There are no spare parts out there.

Excelent car, I love everything!

Remote doesn't work and is apparently quite the mystery to fix. Something in the electrial system. Dome light doesn't come on when door is opened either. Related.
Otherwise, no problems. Perfect size, handling, power and just cute as a bug. Interior could be plusher but that is my complaint about most vehicles.
