2001 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.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

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.

2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara Reviews

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?

cool little suv kicks the shit out of the blazer i had before things seem to be easy to repair mostly do it ur self easy plenty of power and its great in the snow interior could use something more its to bare

I love my Grand Vitara....other than regular normal maintenance, this has been the best car I have ever had....
