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.

2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara Problems
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.
Creaking of squeaking noises may be noted from the sway bar bushings. Our technicians tell us revised bushings are available which should correct this concern.
A knocking sound may be noted from the engine when warm due to improper drive belt tension. Correcting the drive belt tension will commonly repair this concern.
2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara Recalls (Recent)
RepairPal Expert Overview:
The passenger seat contains a sensor which helps determine if the passenger front airbag should deploy or not in the event of a crash. It is called the occupant classification system (OCS), and is a mat that is part of the passenger seat cushion. These vehicles are being recalled because the OCS may fail due to the repeated flexing of the mat from general use of the seat. As a result, in the event of a crash the passenger airbag may deploy when it should not, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion (which includes the OCS sensor mat) to correct this concern.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
The automatic transmission selector lever "park" lock function may be inoperative due to a sticking shift lock arm. As a result the shift lever may be able to be moved out of "park" with the key removed and without depressing the brake pedal. This could cause unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the shift lock module to correct this problem. This recall is expected to begin on January 7, 2008. The Suzuki recall number is PE.
